We often talk about totalitarianism, that which occurred in the past as well as what's happening now. On today's podcast, we're going to take a break from the news and get into the details of what totalitarianism exactly is. Joining us to chat about that is literature and history teacher Walker Larson (thehazelnut.substack.com). He describes the different stages of totalitarianism, based on what we've seen in history, and shows some pretty shocking similarities to society today. These stages, by the way, mark a vivid resemblance to the different stages of religious persecution.
