Re: Is the Federation a True Democracy? And How Did It Reach That Poin
Hypothetical, after becoming a member, Bajor decides to return to their per-occupation caste system after all, the Federation is told formally that this is going to happen (the Bajorians hide nothing), and the caste system becomes a reality. Because Bajor is a Federation member would Starfleet be sent in the "save" the Bajorian people from a decision that many of them might agree with, Bajor is literally force to dissolve the system, or would they be expelled?
I don't know. What would happen if the State of Alabama announced that it was re-instituting segregation?
