Well, I would research any and all possible countries that you know had a totalitarian leader and then narrow it down to that leaders specific type of ruling. Here's a few countries to get your started:

The Dominican Republic, Rafael Trujillo, 40's

Germany, Adolf Hitler, 40's

Cold War Russia, 80's

Russia (during Red Scares part I and II)

Uganda, Present day

North Korea, Kim Jong Ill, Present day

Also, my guess is that you are doing this for homework. In that case you should gather all your notes from class sort through them and look for the answer in there.

Does Canada have a democracy or a totalitarian government?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Canada Feigns a Representative Democratic Government very well but due to no intrenched method of removal of corrupt officials and overwhelming apathy of the Canadian people. It is more pragmatic to call Canada a Machiavellian dream state that poses as Democratic. The legal system is a merger of French and English laws and so it is overtly complex, costly, tedious and vastly ineffective from the top all the way down, also there is no way to get rid of corruption from the top to the bottom.

What was the totalitarian rule that Hitler Stalin and Mussolini followed?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Totalitarian rule means that the government controls every aspect of its citizens' lives. It's the opposite of liberty, which means that citizens are free to do what they want as long as they respect the rights of others. Laws are made to define, for example, that your right to swing your fist stops before it reaches my nose. An example of rule in a totalitarian state is the presence of secret police who arrest you for anything at all and imprison you without a trial. That's how concentration camps (in Germany) and the gulag (in the Soviet Union) got established.

Why did Joseph Stalin create a totalitarian state in the soviet union?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Joseph Stalin became the Soviet leader through a process. He was given his initial power by Lenin at his death. However, Lenin wanted Leon Trotsky to rule the Soviet Union. Stalin hid this fact. He then allied other leaders and isolated his main enemy, Leon Trotsky. He eventually succeeded in having Trotsky expelled from the party (and later the entire country), He then repeated the process to eliminate all threats until he was made the absolute ruller of the Soviet Union.

Totalitarian rulers were able to acquire power during the 1930s?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Dictators were able to rise to power easily during the 1930s because of the recent World War and a world-wide depression. Many people were seeking economic stability, a surplus of food, a strong leader to help them, and some national pride. This is just what dictators like Hitler, Stalin, and Tojo offered.

How do totalitarian regimes use propaganda?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Another word for it is stimulation. The propagandist tries to stimulate others to accept without challenge his own assertions, or to act as he wants them to do. The idea of using suggestion or stimulation as a Propaganda device is that it will lead a public to accept a proposition even though there are not logical grounds for accepting it. The propagandist usually tries to side-step critical reactions from his audience, and therefore suggestion is one of his most important tools.

In the sense that it is ruled by one person or group of people who do not answer to the population and recognise no limits to their authority.
