They don't accept it, they're cowed into it.I am not sure why everyone is getting so worked up about what Glue Sniffer is saying.
It seems to me that he is only stating the obvious i.e. that even in the worst dictatorships (I will exclude Kampuchea) the vast majority of people simply keep their heads down and get on with their lives, they go to work, they get married, they have kids, some of them have the misfortune to catch the eye of the gauleiter/commissar/jefe/red guard or whatever and it's rough for them but mostly everyone just gets on with it.
They don't like it, they would prefer to live in a different regime, but for the vast and overwhelming majority of people they put up with it. Only a very tiny and remarkable minority do anything to fight against the regime, until it starts falling apart and then they flood the town square cheering on the rebels/liberators.
That's a pretty unremarkable statement of fact, can't see why anyone would get annoyed by it.
