Answer 1 Totalitarianism is a term employed by some political scientists,especially those in the field of comparative politics, to describemodern regimes in which the state regulates nearly every aspect ofpublic and private behavior. The most influential scholars of totalitarianism, such as KarlPo…pper, Hannah Arendt, Carl Friedrich, Zbigniew Brzezinski, andJuan Linz have each described totalitarianism in a slightlydifferent way. Common to all definitions is the attempt to mobilizeentire populations in support of the official state ideology, andthe intolerance of activities which are not directed towards thegoals of the state, entailing repression or state control ofbusiness, labor unions, churches or political parties. Totalitarianregimes or movements maintain themselves in political power bymeans of secret police, propaganda disseminated through thestate-controlled mass media, personality cult, regulation andrestriction of free discussion and criticism, single-party state,the use of mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror tactics. Critics of the concept say that the term lacks explanatory power.They argue that governments which may be classified as totalitarianoften lack characteristics said to be associated with the term.They may not be as monolithic as they appear from the outside, ifthey incorporate several groups, such as the army, politicalleaders, industrialists, which compete for power and influence. Inthis sense, these regimes may exhibit pluralism through theinvolvement of several groups in the political process. Answer 2 Generally speaking, a totalitarian government is one that has totalpower over its citizens. Such a regime can have several names,ranging from fascism, to an absolute monarchy, an oligarchy or acommunist dictatorship. These terms do not always fit each case, but are representative oftotalitarianism. Other characteristics of a totalitarian regime are one party rule,the denial of free speech, persecution of any groups attempting tobring about some freedoms, and general cruelty and disregard ofhuman rights. Answer 3 The state controls all aspects of society. (MORE)

There is no meaningful code of ethics when doing business with a totalitarian government, because it is in itself unethical to do so. When google and yahoo assisted the Chinese government in censoring the internet and identifying(and imprisoning) political dissidents, they were publicly condemned fo…r a while,and accused of being unamerican, and then it was business as usual.It was a bit like a showtrial. Everybody knew that the Chinese IT market was far too lucrative to let ethics get in the way. The executives at google and yahoo are not necessarily immoral people, but are obligated to look after shareholders and had little choice but to do as the Chinese said.It may be unethical to do business with dictators, but it's also profitable. Citizens in a democracy don't tolerate their recources being pillaged and their environment polluted by foreign corporations, and that's why dictators are helped into power by western governments, and kept there with a steady supply of arms. Most people are against human rights abuses, but many of the same people have money invested in companies dealing with repressive governments, either as direct shares or indirectly as pension funds.

Another is intolerance and repression. (MORE)

A communist government is a social systemcharacterized by the absence of social classes, and is completely Socialist, thus having poor quality health care for it's citizens. Socialism is basically when the Government starts to take over and control big businesses and the health care industry. Social…ism is the material base for communism. The communist government has failed every where it was tried but is still used in some countries, China for example. Totalitarianism is when there is one person in charge of a country (dictator) and they rule with complete power over the country. so basically totalitarian communism is a badly run government system that can't provide for it's citizens and has one person in charge of the entire countries operations whether the citizens like it or not. and is completely irreversible unless the person in charge wants to go through the hassle of reversing it, which has never and will never happen. The totalitarian leader serves a term of however long he or she wants and can appoint the next person in charge without any election. (MORE)
Stalin was head of the both the Communist Party and the Government in the Union Of Soviet Socialist Republics from the 1920s until he died in the early 1950s. The "USSR", also referred to as the "Soviet Union" consisted of 15 Soviet Socialist Republic, the largest of which was Russia. When the So…viet Union fell apart in the 1990s, new nations were formed from the former republics: Russia Moldova Belorussia Ukraine Latvia Lithuania Estonia Uzbekistan Kirghistan Kazakhstan Georgia Turkmenistan Armenia Azerbaijan Tajikistan Stalin was a vicious and brutal dictator under whom an estimated 60 million Soviet citizens died due to his mistakes and meanness. His economic policies were disastrous, leading to mass starvation. His foreign policy decisions, including his alliance with Adolph Hitler's Third Reich was instrumental in starting World War II and his military prowess was unmatched in its stupidity. During a mass murder of potential opposition in the 1930s Stalin killed or imprisoned most of the Red Army's officer corp. He then ordered the invasion of Finland, a former part of the Russian Empire. The Red Army was defeated, encouraging Hitler to break his pact with Stalin and invade the Soviet Union. Fortunately for free persons everywhere, Stalin had not killed General Zhukov, who came out of the prison camps and led the Red Army to completely destroy the German 6th Army (under Von Paulus) at the famous battle of Stalingrad. Zhukov was then able to push the Germans back to Berlin for a final defeat of Germany 3 years later. The city of Stalingrad is now called Volgograd. Stalingrad was the most important battle in human history and you can get a quick and fun synopsis of the battle by watching the movie "Enemy At the Gates" or by reading "Stalingrad" by Theodor Pliever.

Totalitarianism is a political system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority, and works to regulate every aspect of public and private life. Totalitarianism emerged in the twentieth century because the means for total social control did not exist before that time. These systems move…d beyond authoritarian control. They attempted to mould citizens into a certain desirable type, whether they be proletarian labourer or pure Aryan (as in the case of Stalin's Russia, and Hitlers Germany).

A totalitarian government is one with absolute power over the economy, government, and society. This means elections, market policy, and religious or social policy will be fused directly to the state's wishes, thus giving the people no freedom at all. This differs from the authoritarian model, wher…e the government controls elections but does not intervene in the markets or attempt to disrupt the country's culture.

Totalitarianism has alot to do with the Holocaust. Hitler used the power of controlling all the media to blame all misfortune that came onto Germany, on the Jewish. If something went wrong, blame it on the Jews. This provided a scapegoat for Hitler, so he could come into power and 'cleanse' Germany… of the Jews. Even Books were published on how Jewish people were the "poison mushroom tainting Germany." He used the fact that he controlled everything to his advantage. (MORE)

Russia has never really been anything other than a totalitarian country until the fall of communism in 1990, and even now, Vladimir Putin is somewhat dictatorial for an elected President. If we go back in history we would find that the first unified government of Russia was that of Gengis Khan's Mon…golian empire (specifically, it fell under the branch known as the Golden Horde); subsequently Russia was conquered by the Norse who founded the Russian monarchy which lasted until the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917; all three of these forms of government were totalitarian. Any ruler powerful enough to establish a totalitarian state is likely to do so; people do not make concessions and weaken their own power unless forced to do so. Egocentric rulers always prefer absolute control, rather than having to make compromises and having to persuade people of the wisdom of their decisions (which often are not very wise anyway).. However, there was a specific cause relating to the most extreme totalitarianism which Russia adopted in 1917, and that was WW I. The population of Russia was quite unhappy about the high cost to Russia of its alliance to France and England, which hardly seemed to justify the many deaths of Russian soldiers, and the Bolshevik Revolution was therefore primarily a pacifistic revolution, promising to take Russia out of the war as well as to remedy various other injustices resulting from the class sytem and the disparities of wealth and power which existed at that time. The Russian public did not know that the new injustices which would be inflicted by the communist party would be tremendously worse than the old ones which communism remedied. So, idealism fueled the adoption of a totalitarian system which promised everything and delivered very little. (MORE)
