The perfect king

    Posted on December 3, 2017

An ideal king thoroughly trained by culture and devotional service with the martial spirit makes a perfect king. Such a personal monarchy is far better than the so-called democracy of no training and responsibility. The thieves and rogues of modern democracy seek election by misrepresentation of votes, and the successful rogues and thieves are like wolves who devour the mass of population as if they were scattered lambs. One trained monarch is far better than hundreds of useless ministerial rogues, and it is hinted herein that by the abolition of a monarchical regime like that of Maharaja Pariksit, the mass of people become open to many attacks of the age of Kali. They are never happy in a much-advertised democracy.

From Srila Prabhupada's purport to SB 1.18.43
