I also don't think ridiculing people will actually give them more faith in the system.

Don't worry. I'm not offended. Just making a comment.

The Soviet system worked against normal criminals, too, unless they were connected. And it worked against enemies of the state. But, the people who supported the state could always point to the true criminals that the system took down, and say, "See? The system works." Later, of course, they would just raid the homes of the public doubters.

The system doesn't work if it works against both the innocent and the guilty. It is supposed to work only against the guilty.

And, if you think everyone who opposes you is criminal, the system is also not working.
