Evaluating the Despotism in your Community

Very interesting video from 1946, full of truth for today, from Archive.org:

Despotism (1946)

Measures how a society ranks on a spectrum stretching from democracy to despotism. Explains how societies and nations can be measured by the degree that power is concentrated and respect for the individual is restricted. Where does your community, state and nation stand on these scales?

Note to my reader: the knowledgeful of you will realize that our societies are sliding towards despotism. This is more obvious in the US than in Canada, but it is so a bit here too. Just think about the Asper family...
