An ideologically fictitious world

Totalitarianism is a total system that replaces the general public's experience of the world with an ideologically created fiction. 
The reason people are willing to submit themselves in servility to that ideologically fictitious world is because the real world comes across to the general public as being in severe moral and material decline. 
Totalitarianism is a symptom of spiritual despair on a mass scale. The reason a totalitarian regime can function with such severity and such cruelty and still preserve the consent of the masses is because the 'external' world is perceived by those servile masses as being a place that is even more degenerate and more cruel. 
Totalitarianism affords the spiritual comfort of a ghetto that serves as a safe haven from the corruptions of the world outside.
