The totalitarian regime are already in place. They were voted in by a country of morons who think they’re living in feudal times.
The Tories aren’t totalitarian. They do have an ambivalence towards cronyism and corruption under Johnson, they have an authoritarian streak, but there is no serious concern that this is going to translate to a totalitarian state. No more than a cashless society does.
I get that a cashless society creates the opportunity for greater monitoring and interference with people, many modern things do (CCTV, video editing software etc). However, they do have great benefits. CCTV has helped solve many crimes, for instance. The answer to curb excesses is stringent regulation by the judiciary. However, the Conservatives seem to be sowing discontent among such for their own misguided ends, and it’s this which is a greater worry.
DeereyMe is right to highlight this, but I feel that describing them as totalitarian is too much. They’re more authoritarian than what’s desired and utterly unconcerned about long term worries resulting from their snipes at checks and balances, but not quite like North Korea.
