“The problem is not who sits on the throne. The problem is that there is a throne to sit on”

Larken Rose wrote this in his book The Most Dangerous Superstition (2011):
   
“Many have been able to recognize and oppose specific acts of tyranny by specific regimes, but very few have recognized that the underlying problem is not who sits on the throne; the problem is that there is a throne to sit on.”
   
“Larken Rose: The problem is not who sits on the throne. The problem is that there is a throne to sit on” was posted on Twitter by AntiState on January 30, 2015. That is, the problem is not “bad” government or even “good” government—the problem is government itself.

The problem is not who sits on the throne, it’s that there is a throne at all for someone to sit on and rule over you by force.
