“The King-Men”

Righteous kings are an ideal, but unrighteous kings create problems for their people. As Mosiah said, “For behold, how much iniquity doth one wicked king cause to be committed, yea, and what great destruction!” (Mosiah 29:17). The king-men who desired Amalickiah as king were inviting disaster. Note in Alma 51:8 who supported the idea of overthrowing the republic in favor of a monarchy and why.
