Murray Rothbard (1926-1995)

The only advantage of a democracy is that it provides scope (strictly limited) for peaceful change of state rulers via ballot boxes, instead of requiring bloody revolutions, coup d’etats, etc. Instead of having bloody civil wars over the spoils of state, the robber gangs have their subjects vote every few years as to which gang will rule them. Never, however, do they so much as hint that the people may have a choice as to whether they wish to retain the state system itself.
