Rothbard: the system should be abandoned

"The Marxists used to point out, from long study of historical experience, that no ruling elite in history has ever voluntarily surrendered its power; or, more correctly, that a ruling elite has only been toppled when large sectors of that elite, for whatever reasons, have given up and decided that the system should be abandoned."

--Murray N. Rothbard. Making Economic Sense, "The November Revolution"
