A tyranny is a government where a leader has unlimited power over the others in his city, state or country, and does cruel and unfair treatments without their consentment.
Originated from Italy during the Second World War, in the early 20th century.
Placed on the far right of the political left-right spectrum.
Led by a strong leader, just like dictatorship, has as a main goal to obtain national unity and to have a stable and ordered society.
Rejects any kind of violence.
Anti-liberalism, anti-communism, anti-conservatism.
Forbids any kind of opposition and criticism.
Presence of a lot of racism.
Has control over all industries and companies.
Doesn't believe in the possibility or utility of peace.
An extreme form of socialism and nationalism.
Examples from real life:
Fascism (Benito Mussolini)
Benito Mussolini, italian politician, journalist, novelist, teacher and leader of the National Fascist Party
Founder of the political system, he was Prime Minister of Italy from 1922 to 1943, but he gave up the democratic system in 1925 to set up a dictatorship and founded fascism.
Served in the First World War as a socialist, but fascism and dictatorship were two political systems that spoke to him much more.
After the war, Mussolini's socialist side was gone and he got a start in politics convincing people that fascism supported strong unity of the society whatever the social class to try and raise Italy to its roman past.
He said: "Fascist education is moral, physical, social, and military: it aims to create a complete and harmoniously developed human, a fascist one according to our views"
In summary, Benito Mussolini was first a socialist who served in the war, he then had a change of heart and started believing in dictatorship. He then founded fascism and became the Prime Minister of Italy and lead his people as a fascist party.
A dictatorship is a form of government where a country is ruled by one person who takes all the decisions without any limitations.
Basically, it's the opposite of democracy, in witch everybody has a right to participate and express their opinion.
Dictatorship creates a strong government
The decisions are taken really fast because the dictator has absolute power and doesn't have to consult anybody
Every crime, even the small ones, are strongly punished, witch creates a really low crime rates.
Definition : Autocracy is a government where one person has unlimited authority over everybody else. It is the authority or rule of an autocrat. An autocrat is someone who demands that people obey him.

Oligarchy is a form of power. It distinguishes itself by its reliance on
public obedience
and, or
. This type of power is used by a small group of highly ranked people(royalty, wealthiness, military control, etc.) in favor of their own class, hence, negatively.
Only one person controls everything even the science, the education, the art and the private lives.
Totalitarianism is a political system where the government control everything of the population even the thought.
Nobody has a right to express their opinion
People get tired of dictatorship and wants to abolish it, witch creates revolutions and wars
Dictatorship encourages violence, war, aggressions, etc.
Dictators use force and big punishments to make sure that their orders and laws are respected

The decisions are made quickly without consulting the opinion of other political groups.
In military, an autocrat is needed to give orders, to take charge of people. Some like to be told exactly what to in times of stress.
Example of an oligarchy:
An autocratic leader doesn't stress about having to rely on others to do the task because he has the power to decide.
Example of a Dictatorship
Most autocratic leaders base their decisions on their own ideas which aren't always the best for the rest of the society.
The Russian oligarch gouvernment is a small group of people that represent what's left of the Soviet Union's ways of thinking. In that group can be found Mr. Boris Berezovsky and other businessmen that have
political power
. This group was mostly strong in the 1990's.

Mr. Berezovsky constantly gained his power over TV(channel ORT).
His objectif was to be in charge of Russia's domestic and foreign security policy. He
Many people dislike this type of government because it can be extreme and the leaders motivations can be negative which frustrates the population.
The population feels secure when their is a strong leadership in charge.
People are not allowed freedom of expression or speech. Nobody can talk against the government, if the do, they will suffer severe consequences.
North Korea's current situation is a good example of a dictatorship. The leader of the country is Kim-Jong-Un, who is 30 years-old and took the place of his father after his death. The situation in North Korea is really bad. Here are some examples of the restrictions that people need to respect :
Can't have any contact with the outside world
No traveling
Using cellphones or internet is forbidden
Speaking against the government is forbidden and can get you into really big trouble if you're doing it

Example of a tyranny
by Rose-Marie
A great example of a tyranny in the world is the talismans when they have the power in Afghanistan. They terrorize to make the people listen to them.
A totalitarian regimes under Stalin
Example in real life: Autocracy Fidel Castro
Once in power, he quickly eliminated all opposition and different visions (other than his) of Cuba’s future in order to minimize any risk of rejection, criticism, or challenge to his power by other people.
He was an authoritarian leader and he did not want change in his way of thinking and his decision making process. He was intimidating and forcing, he displayed this behavior when he punished people for not following his orders. He believed that his way was always the right way. Fidel Castro always needed to be in control and he liked to work alone.

Fidel Castro was a strong advocate for the lower class and poor population of Cuba. He joined the Cuban People’s Party and started to change the quality of life for the poor population. He was also was able to convince members of this party that change needed to happen, and that Cuba’s government needed to be removed. This started a revolution, which eventually allowed Castro to take over power and force Batista (former president) out of office.
