Totalitarian
by Hannah Hohman

A Totalitarian government is a centralized government that does not tolerate parties of differing opinion and that exercises dictatorial control over many aspects of life.

Pros: Everything can be run smoothly because no one can disagree. Also, things get done faster because there is no opposition.

Cons: Government can become too power hungry and kill anyone that gets in their way. No one can ever voice their opinion.

― Pope John Paul II

― Steve Allen
