in malaysia, the word "communist" is a taboo. from 513 till now, barisan national is sensitive with the word. cause you will stirr the peace of the nations, the harmony of this multiracial society.

a good example happened recently: a malaysian film maker, Amir Muhammad who make this movie "lelaki komunis terakhir" which had gain approval from the censorship board of malaysia but was halted by the home affairs ministry at the last minute saying it glorifies the idea of communist.

so our government, the barisan national rejects any idea that pose relation to communist.

but at the same time, barisan national befriend with china, more flights to china, more business deal with china.

let us look at how communist rules: totalitarianism

defination of totalitarianism:

Totalitarianism is a term employed by political scientists, especially those in the field of comparative politics, to describe modern regimes in which the state regulates nearly every aspect of public and private behavior.

The most influential scholars of totalitarianism, such as Karl Popper, Hannah Arendt, Carl Friedrich, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Juan Linz have each described totalitarianism in a slightly different way. Common to all definitions is the attempt to mobilize entire populations in support of the state and a political or religious ideology, and the intolerance of activities which are not directed towards the goals of the state, such as involvement with labour unions, churches or political parties. Totalitarian regimes maintain themselves in political power by means of single-party state, secret police, propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, personality cult, regulation and restriction of free discussion and criticism, the use of mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror tactics (political purges and persecution of specific groups of people).

Critics of the concept contend that the term lacks explanatory power. They argue that governments which may be classified as totalitarian often lack characteristics said to be associated with the term. They may not be as monolithic as they appear from the outside, if they incorporate several groups, such as the army, political leaders, industrialists, which compete for power and influence [1]. In this sense, these regimes may exhibit pluralism through the involvement of several groups in the political process
