Wrong. Tyrannies care about 100% support very much.
That is why they spend so much effort on propaganda and
persuation, that is why they care so much to silent any
dissent and to discredit that dissent which they cannot silent.
Example: Jack Price's statement that criticisms of `standards'
are mean-spirited and self-serving, where it was intentionally
unclear, which criticisms were meant, because of intentionally
unclear statements like `You have heard them all.'
