Statement

Suppose G is a finite group. Then, if G is a monolithic group (i.e., it has a unique minimal normal subgroup) then G is a linearly primitive group, i.e., it admits an irreducible linear representation over the complex numbers that is also a faithful linear representation, i.e., has trivial kernel).
