Encyclopaedia Britannica Films produced this 1946 educational film to warn us about the signs that your community is sliding into despotism.
The two chief characteristics of despotism -- restricted respect and concentrated power -- are defined and illustrated. Two of the conditions which have historically promoted the growth of despotism are explained and exemplified. These are a slanted economic distribution and a strict control of the agencies of communication.
