In the political thought of the 20th century important role was played by the theory of totalitarianism. It developed in the 20s in Europe, at first in Italy, then in many other countries - such as Germany and among political emigration from the Third Reich and Austria (after taking power by Hitler in these countries). Thanks to this political emigration the theory of totalitarianism pervaded into English language and spread in the political debates about shape of mankind. The rise of totalitarian theory was connected with the new political regimes, which tried to control all social behavior and to mobilize people for fighting to achieve governance over the world.
