Kingship must be accepted willingly

In regard to rulership in this world, the Torah states: "you shall surely place over yourself a king." Acceptance of rulership can only be willingly...only with your agreement and desire, and if not, he is not king at all. For the word "kingship" applies only to willing acceptance, when the people accept the king willingly, to serve him and subordinate all their desires to his desire...
