Total paralysis or total anarchy, on the one hand, total tyranny or total "democide," on the other, are the extreme cases in which morality seems to make 20 Pierre Hassner intervention imperative, and the only question is who should implement it and what means should be used.

We are back to the medieval questions of legitimate authority, just cause, proportionality, and discrimin~tion but without a pope and an emperor, although the secretary-general of the United Nations and the United States sometimes seem reluctantly and fleetingly to fill part of the two roles.
