Re: Cardassian society - enforcement or preference?

Sci, I think the point Dal Rassak is trying to make is that someone could reject democracy and prefer other ways of ruling, not your personal view on political procedures of Lichtenstein, or anywhere else.

In times of great famine and other kind of great crisis, the Cardassians could have chosen a rule of one or few war heroes/strong leaders/good demagogues/whatever over warring and ineffective political parties. It could be a universal referendum for all we know. Whether it was a right move or a mistake, that's another story.
