I think that the events of recent weeks, especially in Libya, prove the wisdom and truthfulness of these words. While many people, countries and nations have looked to kings, or strong autocratic rulers, as a solution to their current problems. Unfortunately the end result is usually more hardships and trouble for the people. In the end it never turns out to be a solution.

"Ye cannot dethrone an iniquitous king save it be through much contention"
In light of the current events happening in the Arab world I thought that this short passage from The Book of Mormon was particularly applicable.
