Totalitarianism Government

Juannya Duncan

A totalitarian government not only commands total obedience towards its powers, but also demands the individual's total support and very explicit legalization in controlling all others in the society.

There are lots of countries now and in the past use a totalitarian government even just leaders use this government. North Korea has been ruled by the same family since 1948. The family has been running the country based on the concept of self-reliance. However, severe economic declines have contributed to the country's struggle to maintain totalitarianism.

Having a totalitarian government does not benefit the citizens because all they can think about is how to broaden the regimes and propaganda's. Most of the time, dictators of totalitarian countries do not really care for the society, but only think about themselves. They have little to no right, they can be told where to live, what jobs they can have, where to go to school, and what they can or can not say.

totalitarian government is a government that has total control of its country. It is a domineering government with unlimited power that uses ruthless force to apply an absolute control over all the individuals that make up the society.

Totalitarian governments do not tolerate activities by individuals or groups such as labor unions that are not directed by the state's goals. Totalitarian regimes maintain themselves in power through secret police, propaganda disseminated through the media, the elimination of open criticism of the regime, and use of terror tactics. Internal and external threats are created to foster unity through fear.

A totalitarian government seeks to control not only all economic and political matters but the attitudes, values, and beliefs of its population, erasing the distinction between state and society. The citizen's duty to the state becomes the primary concern of the community, and the goal of the state is the replacement of existing society with a perfect society.
