Totalitarianism means a modern autocratic government in which the state involves itself in all facets of society, including the daily life of its citizens. A totalitarian government seeks to control not only all economic and political matters but the attitudes, values, and beliefs of its population, erasing the distinction between state and society. The citizen's duty to the state becomes the primary concern of the community, and the goal of the state is the replacement of existing society with a perfect society.
A totalitarian state has to control the attitude, values and beliefs of its population. We were lied to by Obama, head of the regime and Marxist/Progressives when he was telling us we could keep our health care if we liked it period; we would keep our doctor if we wanted and he would not sign a plan that would add one penny to the deficit. We have known Obama has always lied. He lied on his application to the bar and had to surrender his law license and we could go on and on.
Now we are seeing the rest of the Marxist/Progressives making excuses for their head, and thus revealing their totalitarian mentality. It does not matter that their leader lied. What matters is that they know what is best for us. They are saving us from our own ignorance, after all we should want a better health policy, we should want to pay more so others can have coverage, and we should want to have coverage’s in our policy even though we will never use the coverage because it is best for all.
GFW Hegel, Marx’s mentor and thus Obama’s mentor, said absolute freedom is when all rational decisions are made in absolute accordance with the dictates of the state. We who think we should be able to make decisions that do not conform to the totalitarian state are just too foolish to know what is in our best interest.
Freedom loving Americans take note. Your freedoms are at great risk.
