In political science, totalitarianism is defined as a form of rule that seeks to influence all social conditions, often combined with the claim to form a „new human“ according to a certain ideology.
Especially in the year 2020, the extent to which the topic of totalitarianism is creeping into democratic countries, is becoming more and more apparent. It is disguised by the prevailing indoctrination that totalitarian states are exclusively „right-wing“ oriented or that this system of states would simply be a thing of the past. Unfortunately, this is not true.
Corruption has various levels and is present in almost every policy worldwide. The fact that lobbying in a democracy decides on social policy, is a first indication that democracy does not work here. We are so overloaded with information from the media that we are no longer able to recognize, if and when something negative is creeping into our political system. Politicians make sure that information sounds like gibberish and that every normal consumer, after a short look at the information, waves it away and simply cannot understand what was just said.
With a view to times where Stalinism and National Socialism prevailed, one may like to play us again and again, that WE are not like that – WE are democratic and the people decide (end of sarcasm). Just because totalitarianism was more clearly recognizable in those times, it doesn’t mean that it couldn’t sneak into today’s democracy. You only need corrupt politicians for that. And we have them a lot!
Typical for totalitarianism is also a permanent mobilization in mass organizations and the exclusion up to the killing of those who actually or possibly resist the total claims to power. Well, if you look at the reverse psychology, it looks like today in 2020, it looks like our system, whatever that means, the construct is the non plus ultra and anything and everyone who says differently will be held accountable – one way or another. This, even though FREE SPEECH is enshrined in the German constitution. There are also mass organizations today and they indirectly support the existing system, although they actually stand for something different. We have a very large mass organization, which unfortunately also proceeds very radically and loudly. It is known worldwide and yet it is all too readily „tolerated“ by the population and especially by governments. Even if they have some good approaches, they are supported by those who are the real problem. They destroy property’s of others and say they want same things for everybody, although most of the members have never worked in their lives. They don’t pay social security contributions, don’t care much about laws and still want property to be shared among all people. By the way, this concept of being the “same” is something that we experienced under german socialism. In the end many had nothing and only a few had a lot. The idea is good, but why shouldn’t have someone more than another, if he has worked for it? The problem here is, has he more than others cause of corruption? So this is the root of the problem in each political system. So let’s work on that – corruption!
In China, for example, the concept of the total state is increasingly defining the country. Out of fear, people regularly flee abroad and also report their traumatic experiences.
A further indication of the totalitarian state is also the control of the masses. In this country this strategy remained hidden for a long time, but is becoming more and more obvious. Control is caught up by drastic restrictions in the constitution and media which are equalized and not free, report in the sense of the government and try to cover up as much as possible. Although it is always emphasized that restrictions are only temporary, there is usually no going back. This creeping process into this philanthropic system of totalitarianism is far more dangerous than one might think. People only notice the change when it is no longer avoidable.
We are also often told that totalitarianism requires a kind of fanatical figure to be followed. This is total nonsense, if you consider that it can happen insidiously and that the Trojan horse is only discovered when it has long since taken its place. All these are statements to prevent people from getting a sense of right and wrong. Nobody notices when laws have changed, or politicians try to gain more and more power by using loopholes in the law for their corruption.
Benito Mussolini said: „Everything in the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state“. This sentence should warn us always and constantly, against the so-called dictatorial stripping of a totalitarian leader. But actually, it should read
„Everything to the state, nothing for society and humans, nothing against the state“.
Considering that China has expanded its influence worldwide and in Germany some important politicians are obviously friends of this system, one can only hope that people will slowly wake up and start to question things before it is too late. We are the people. The government should serve the people. Don’t forget!
It is becoming more and more obvious that political concepts of antagonism have been packed into certain schemes to make sure that everyone wants exactly what the governments want. Most people no longer notice if something is democratic or not, because they simply trust blindly. They have lost the natural sense that shows them that they are facing danger. In most countries of democracy, they are simply pretended to have a democracy. This article is not about claiming democracy, it’s about getting it back! In truth, the process of inverted totalitarianism is already too well advanced.
Welcome to democratic elite rule.

Further evidence of the total state:
- pervading total ideology or totalitarian ideology that does not rely on critical consciousness but on conviction (Corona Politics)
- No civil liberties and/or the disregard of the human rights, no freedom of opinion, no medium liberty (Gleichschaltung of the media – run all over a channel the information censored, where is thus the own opinion from?)
- Informers, secret services, political police, arbitrary arrests and repression of the population should nip any independent thinking in the bud and intimidate people (Corona politics with arbitrary arrests, defamation, exclusion, as well as dismissals from work, social murder is the order of the day, different political approaches are strictly forbidden)
- No separation of powers: Legislature, executive and judiciary are not independent and separate from each other, but „are in the hands“ of the dictator or the ruling party (Only recently, one had to watch how some politicians in the leading government tried to merge these issues more with each other and also the Minister of Health Jens Spahn applied for an extension of his special rights. That the opposition has no say in the so-called Corona measures is more than questionable and does not look like democratic procedures).
