Characteristics of Totalitarianism

Post  maddie on Mon Apr 29, 2013 11:17 pm

Some of the Characteristics of Totalitarianism would be:
1. A single party Dictatorship.
2. The states control of the economy.
3. The use of police, spies, and terror to enforce the will of the state.
4. The strict censorship and government monopoly of the media.
5. The use of schools and the media to indoctrinate and mobilize citizens.
6. And finally the unquestioning obedience to a single leader.
A good example of a totalitarian dictator would be Benito Mussolini (1883-1945)
