A famous British researcher George Orwell describing totalitarianism noted its main peculiarity: "Totalitarianism encroached on freedom of thought in such a way that it could not have been imagined before... it is dictated what exactly to think; an ideology is embraced which must be accepted by the personality, they strive to manage his or her emotions and impose behavior forms on him or her... At least a totalitarian state does its utmost to control thoughts and feelings of its subjects so efficient that it controls their actions...". Just the control of actions, freedom of thought and feelings of "homo soveticus" became the main task of repression mechanisms of the Soviet state.
