Re: Cardassian society - enforcement or preference?

There might be something in Cardassians that makes them more receptive to authority and duty to other races, but I think it's more they've been taught to prefer a dictatorship than they naturally prefer it. And a lot of their complicity is more about fear of punishment than actually wanting to be compliant.

If you asked a citizen of the New World Colonies in 1750, they'd say, yeah, democracy is ridiculous, let's all be loyal subjects of the King!

If you asked an American citizen in 1810, democracy rules, screw the King.
