Totalitarianism refering to a totalitarian state is a one party state in which each person is supposed to work towards the good of state, much like the aim of Stalin's USSR, o…r the Nazi's Germany.
Nazi Germany: The weakness of democratic institutions and the economic turmoil by the Treaty of Versailles and the Great Depression in the Weimar Republic of Germany opened th…e doors for the Nazis under Adolf Hitler to come to power----basically through a democratic election. Soviet Union: The authoritarian monarchy of the Czarist Russia was cruel and unjust on Russia's poor people, and that galvanize a revolution under VI Lenin. WWI brought the weakness of the Czarist regime and when the February Revolution occured, where hundreds of Russians in St. Petersburg were gunned down by the Czar's Imperial Guards, the Czarist regime ended and opened a power vacuum for Lenin to takeover after the overthrow of the weak provisional government. Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union were Europe's two big totalitarian twins, while all other totalitarian governments were basically propped up either by Soviet or Nazi occupation or through Communist-led post-WWII liberation as in the case in Yugoslavia and Albania.

How is Mussolini's rise to power and totalitarian state in Italy to that of Hitler's rise to power and totalitarian state in Germany?
Both, like most of the world then and now, was developing aneconomic depression from hordes of excess labor undercutting wagesand depleting resources. Overpopulation was not u…nder controlanywhere then and the world had overwhelmed the currenttechnology's ability to access sufficient resources for theexpanding hordes of people. So it was once again time for the mostdesperate to attack neighbors and take their land and resources. WWI had slaughtered some excess people but its stagnant trenchwarfare did almost nothing to acquire more useful land for anyone. The people of Italy, Spain, and Germany became interested inMarxist international socialist and fascist national socialistpolicies in their growing desperation. Because thenationalsocialists promised to protect national industries and its jobsagainst foreign competition undercutting them, they won thecompetition between the two radical socialist philosophies. Italy's Mussolini developed the fascist "corporatist" nationalsocialist structure. It was a more efficient shallow bureaucraticsystem that "incorporated" each industry under a single governmentbureau that controlled it. Spain and Germany copied Italy's model. Italy's economy startedimproving and it began more conquests south into Africa and eastinto the Balkans to feed it. Spain became mired with a war againstits Marxists who were raging jealous against the nationalsocialist's popularity "stealing" their proletariat from them.Communists from other countries, including the US, entered Spain tohelp their communists. The German national socialists sided withFranco, Spain's fascist leader, and helped defeat the communists ina fierce civil war made famous by writers like Hemingway. Germany was the most successful with the system. It was well suitedto the traditional German culture's stricter discipline andsocialist origins (according to Marx). Their economy improved mostrapidly and the world was fascinated at it's initial success untilit began its conquest for the land needed by it's expandingpopulation. LIke Greece, Rome, and France before it, it decided totake so much as it could, not just what it needed for the immediatefuture. The rest is history you should already know.

Dictators will always do the following: 1) CONTROL THE PRESS (MEDIA): They don't want the people to knowwhat is going on outside their borders, and the people get thegovernmen…t's spin on all matters. Control the press (and media),control the minds of the people. 2) SEIZE THE INTELLIGENCIA: The intellectually elite will shareideas, and dictatorships hate a thinking people. 3) SECRET POLICE: The Secret Police are the key to a dictatorship.They are the ones who keep the local people affraid, who willcultivate the neighborhood spies who report on those speaking outagainst the government. The Secret Police will then make a show ofarresting the subversive, which will make others think twice aboutspeaking out aganist the government. 4) MILITARY BUY IN: Without the "Buy In" of the Military, adictatorship is doomed. The dictator must keep them happy and makesure they will enforce then dictator's policies, as well asbrutally put down any revolts. The Military can't have a consious,but follwo their leadership's orders.
