Re: Cardassian society - enforcement or preference?

As to Nerys Ghemor's point, yes I do believe a lot of people on Cardassia would want a little more freedom of expression, and certainly there's a problem with the Secret Service. I would conceive of a Cardassian patriot wanting certain things changed without wanting to change the system overall.

Surely people would have severe objections to the Order being able to frame citizens innocent of wrongdoing just for convenience, but it seems there is some enmity between the military government and the Order for those reasons - so this wouldn't invalidate the notion that people might prefer a military-style strict government while also wishing for the indiscriminate powers of the Secret Service to be curtailed, as it seems to be serving itself more than the citizens it is meant to protect.
