In my current work in progress, I'm having trouble with the main character's reasoning for his blind belief in the Dystopian government. Currently I'm going with the idea that his father was devoted, therefore teaching his young son his beliefs. In order to strengthen the protagonist's views, I wrote that his father was killed by a protestor of the government when the protagonist was ten. Now that the protagonist is a young adult, he is even more loyal to his father's government because his loved one was murdered by those he disagreed with. The protagonist sees this government as necessary. The laws, the Tiers, the differences between how they are treated, etc. Whether the people like it or not, without the government, there would be no more humanity, so he sees no right to complain. Does this sound realistic and does it make sense?
