Re: Cardassian society - enforcement or preference?

I can see how the comfort and control of a fascistic society might be what Cardassians think they want. But I would propose that that could be largely because it's just what they've had for so long that it has become the norm to them, what generations have grown up in and never really considered that there might be other options. It's comfortable to them simply because it's what they're used to. Kind of a mass Stockholm Syndrome situation.

Indeed, in a recent novel focusing on the Tzenkethi, a culture for whom democracy really is anathema as "the monster under the bed"...
