The "rulers" actually don't matter. They are vastly outnumbered by the people like you and me. The problem is those who legitimate the "rulers" with their votes, remaining silent when the "rulers" commit evils in their names.
Most of them do not feel bad about that. Many of them even cheer and applaud to their "rulers" and they defend the crimes they commit.
Larken Rose is looking for answers to this absurd behavior and blames the concept of authority. From early childhood most people are conditioned to listen to authority when they try to figure out what is right and what is wrong instead of listening to their own hearts, their own conscience and their own moral values.
As adults they see everyone as a "good person" who blindly obeys any random authority. And in their pursuit of becoming such a "good person" they will use every means. In particular they love to oppose violently against those who stand up for true freedom.
Larken Rose sums it up in one sentence:
"The problem is not those in power, the problem is right between your ears."
