Ideal features of an effective police state

1) All citizens believe any accusation about any one (except about benevolent leaders).

2) Any appearance of being downtrodden is evidence of deserving to be downtrodden.

3) Any criticism of the state or injustice is to be presented as evidence that some fault on the part of the individual making the criticism (e.g., related to whatever purported deficiencies and/or potential deviant behaviour, preferences and/or thought) underlies their deservingness of negative esteem which led to their having the possibility to hold a critical attitude toward one or more organs of the state and/or parts thereof.

4) Any statement involving an element of truth is regarded as evidence of the entirety of truth in whatever statement that follows, in the case that the statement is demonstrably associated with state power. If the statement involving an element of truth is critical of the state (excluding space for orchestrated ostracization of non-rehabilitated politicos), however, this is evidence of the general dishonesty of whatever follows.

5) Those who criticize or identify shortcoming in police or intelligence in any manner (other than those which legitimize to give them larger budget allocations or greater freedom to abuse their position) are immediately deemed suspect, to be investigated until neutralized including by setup and/or outright fabrication if necessary (excluding police states where people simply disappear when they criticize the state).

6) Independent civilian capacity to resolve various social, economic and political issues is zero or near to zero, in preference for highly exclusionary practices with regard to access to human, financial and other resources which would enable civilians to independently resolve said issues. Independent civilian activities are suppressed vigorously (Zersetzung is one naming and example of this) using any rationale that can be enforced to the broader public.
