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 r…egulates nearly every aspect ofpublic and private behavior. The most influential scholars of totalitarianism, such as KarlPopper, 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.
It is a form of government in which the leaders use complete power over nearly every aspect of human affairs. Authoritarianism and totalitarianism are alike because both are …dictatorships, but totalitarian government is more extreme.

Some countries that have a totalitarian government are China, Cuba,Egypt, and Iran. North Korea and Saudi Arabia also havetotalitarian governments.
People often accept a totalitarian government for a number of reasons. Firstly, a nation can find itself under a totalitarian government incrementally. In these cases, a gov…ernment slowly erodes the liberties of the society and moves towards totalitarianism. Germany in the 1930s is an example of this. Another reason is that the people simply cannot do anything about a totalitarian government. One of the key properties of a totalitarian government is the repression of the population by the government, thus making it very hazardous to so much as speak out against the regime.
yes it is
has only one political party that represents only one point of veiw
Sudan has an authoritarian government in which all effective political power is in the hands of President Omar al-Bashir . Bashir and his party have controlled the government… since he led the military coup on 30 June 1989 .. Sudan has recently emerged as the world's most unstable country according to the Failed States Index , mainly due to the Military Government and Darfur Conflict
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 fus…ed directly to the state's wishes, thus giving the people no freedom at all. This differs from the authoritarian model, where the government controls elections but does not intervene in the markets or attempt to disrupt the country's culture. Mussolini's Italy was totalitarian like Stalin's Soviet Union, but Pinochet and Franco were authoritarians.
Merit: If the totalitarian government is benevolent and the people's need are being met the society can achieve spectacular and sublime results, i.e., the Pyramids of Egypt. I…magine, if you would, an ant colony; a total lack of diversity, everyone knows their place and duty, everyone works to the same strictly defined end results and no one person is the wiser. Demerit: Witness North Korea, Hitler's Germany, etc. The desire for ethnic purity, genetic engineering, thought police, state defined art, bureaucratic corruption, extreme paranoia and ultimately collapse and chaos. Witness the French revolution.
After the World Trade Centers fell and images of it were seen by everyone, the government got the necessary amount of patriotism/nationalism from the people to lead them into …a war with no just cause. They labeled the Taliban as an oppressive government and demonized them and Al Qaeda as "freedom haters" (how can anyone hate freedom?). This gave the Americans the will to lead an all out offensive on the third world country Afghanistan. As Americans irrationally feared Islamic Arabs and "terrorists," due to the media constantly informing Americans of supposed terror threats (with little to no sources) and keeping them worryied, the government was able to take away large amounts of rights from the American public with the Patriot Act. Some of the major points of this Act are the government's ability to spy , keep files, tap the phone lines, search the property without a warrant , and indefinately arrest without a trial ALL suspected terrorists. So, any person person that posed a threat to the government could lead to them being called a "terrorist" and consequently being sent to jail/tortured.

It is not held responsible to the public by free, competitive\nelections, and employs its unlimited power to control most aspects of society,\nincluding the family, religion, education, and social relationships. \n\n There\nare various degrees of business autonomy and the use of private property. Like\nfascist Italy and Germany, however, during WW2, there is powerful control by government\nover aspects of industry, and complete control of free trade and currency, not\nunlike the United States. \n\n .
