Benignuman, the stam assumption of the Gemora and Shulchan Aruch is that the Yidden keep the Torah. If people become prutzim be’aveiros and the regular punishments do not reign them in, the Beis Din is allowed to punish shlo al pi regular din to restore observance. That is the whole purpose of a horo’as sha’ah. Except for that Gemora with the Sanhedrin moving out — which one can misunderstand, the whole mashmoos of Tanach and Gemora is that we force the people to behave themselves, namely, to keep the mitzvos.
