The Misnomering of Totalitarianism

I really hate the misuse of the word "totalitarian." The only currently existing totalitarian regimes in the world are North Korea and maybe Turkmenistan (Turkmenistan was totalitarian IMHO under Turkmenbashi, but it has loosed up a little bit since he died and Berdimuhamedow took over). And yet people love to toss around the word "totalitarian" when they talk about regimes they don't like.
