yup. Many people don't even understand they need a czar. the problem is that Russia mostly is a big big countryside (village) except some major cities. And people living there, opposed to most of those who live in major cities, don't like to make decisions. They want some powerful leader that will decide for them where to go and what to do. It's kind of Russian spirit or smth like that cliche. And many others who'd like to make decisions by their own, remember those bloody years, when one wrong word led to death and are afraid to do smth against the governing person.
