Eneko Gogeaskoetxea Arronategui has been arrested in the UK over a 1997 plot to kill the king of Spain, Juan Carlos.
I’m sad that he failed (though not excited about his proposed method, which could easily have harmed others) and I don’t know anything, really, about his politics. But I just want to say that anyone has the right to kill monarchs. A monarch is and always will be the symbol of tyranny and any the only ethical choice a monarch may make is to abdicate power. There are regicides that are not necessarily good ideas, strategically speaking, but there are no unwarranted ones.
For what it’s worth, my favorite regicidist was Gaetano Bresci, who took down King Umberto I in Italy. Who’s yours?
