Re: Cardassian society - enforcement or preference?

^ I find it likely that the Detapa Council once was the legitimate governing body of Cardassia, but the military and the Obsidian Order just flat out took all the power away from them. The people had no say in that.

Isn't it almost self-evident that a dictatorship can never be democratic? The very meaning of the term 'dictatorship' automatically precludes the people having any rights in the working of the government (or indeed any kind of rights whatsoever).
