I can probably identify with the Cardassians the most. They value order and stability and a sense of duty to the state, and so do I.
Of course I would never support something like the occupation of Bajor - that was a horrible thing. But then again, not all Cardassians were in favor of that, either.
Does that include their judicial system? Aside from their treatment of planets they occupy, they also think the appearance of crime having consequence is more important than punishing the right man.
I'm all for order and stability so long as all citizens are able to benefit from that order and stability equally, and I think the state's loyalty to the citizens is more important than the other way around.
