Advantages and disadvantages of Dictatorship or Totalitarianism

Every form of government has some merits and demerits. Following are some the advantages and disadvantages of dictatorship or totalitarianism.

Advantages of Dictatorship

Following are the merits of dictatorship

  1. Dictatorship establishes a strong government. As there is no opposition, no criticism, all energies are directed to the achievement of the arms of the state, which can be achieved very quickly.
  2. It provides efficient and prompt administration. It is said that dictatorship is 10 years-ahead of democracy. The reason is that dictatorship does not believe in consultation discussion or debates. Since the leaded or ruling party has absolute powers, they can take quick and prompt actions. They adopt such policy, which to them appears to be most beneficial. Besides, such people are appointed to do the jobs as are efficient and competent. In this way aims of the state are achieved in short possible time. We have the example of the USSR and Germany.
