What is An Authoritarian Government?

An Authoritarian Government, Authoritarianism, is a system of government that is controlled by a group of people who are not necessarily elected by the people. Under Authoritarianism, the process of voting is often rigged and inadequate challengers are often allowed to run against incumbents. The government is controlled by people who care little about civil liberties and only support groups that will support their political agenda. They generously support the military but only because the military is used to make sure people will not rise against their authoritarian leaders. For more information look here:
