In a totalitarian society one person is in charge. This person is called a dictator and there is no freedom of voting, expression, art, press, or personal decisions. Every thing in the society is controlled. In a democracy it is the opposite. People are allowed to vote, protest, create, and make decisions that are best for them.

What are the benefits and risks of interdependence?

If interdependence implies a two-way dependence, and if each partner is equally dependent on the other for success, then there is an equal commitment to the making the partnership successful. The advantage is sustainability of the relationship, the disadvantage is that decisions are "democratic" and therefore may take longer to reach and more likely to be a compromise (which is not always the best solution). As the interdependence moves away from equality, the decisions become more influenced by the more independent partner. In the extreme the relationship becomes more dictatorial and more like "Master-Slave". Generally the relationship has less commitment in both directions and is more likely to be temporary. If one generalizes (and one shouldn't), equity partnerships, which is probably what is implied by interdependence, can be slow to progress or change but durable. The extreme alternative, independent-dependent partnerships tend to be efficient but more fragile.
