Hello, I have updated The Devil-Devil Club.

Check it out if you please.

Totalitarianism is a political concept where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible. Totalitarian regimes stay in political power through rule by one leader and an all-encompassing propaganda campaign, which is disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that is often marked by political repression, personality cultism, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of speech, mass surveillance and widespread use of terror. A distinctive feature of totalitarian governments is an "elaborate ideology, a set of ideas that gives meaning and direction to the whole society”. I copied this from Wikipedia.



On the basis of the above quote, the answer has to be a resounding no. The UK does not regulate every aspect of life, neither do we have one unelected leader. We have elections, we have political parties and choice as to who governs us; we have freedom of speech, we are not politically repressed, although sometimes it feels like it. Our economy is no more controlled than that of other countries and to date, we do not have widespread surveillance of the type deployed by the KGB and Stasi at the height of the Cold War. Yes, we have CCTV, but no more than inother countries and they are invaluable in controlling crime and apprehending criminals. our lives are not excessively regulated; indeed, if the far right had their way, we’d regulate nothing. We do not use terror in a widespread way. Yet. We do not have a collective ideology that gives meaning and direction to society. Yet.



So no, we aren’t totalitarian and there are far more first world countries that are either moving towards totalitarianism, or as in the case of Russia, have not strayed far from it.

Thanks for the watch.

Thanks for the follow, may I ask how I earned it?

"There is not bad, nor a good option, it's a gray area..."

Gray morality, as you have outlined, literally doesn't exist. Retract that statement. Now.
