Despotism (1946)

Released after WWII, this amazing film illustrates the thesis that all communities can be ranged on a scale running from democracy to despotism. The two chief characteristics of despotism — restricted respect and concentrated power — are defined and illustrated. Don’t be surprised if today’s modern democracies don’t fare so well when measured against this film..
