This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The old image of dictators ruling with an iron fist and military in the streets is gone, replaced by something JJ Rendon calls Neo-Totalitarianism. The effect is the same, curtailing freedoms and oppressing dissent, but far more subtle and sinister.

Besides being a psychologist, communicator, publicist, and film director, J.J Rendon has gained recognition throughout the world for his remarkable work as a political strategist. Over the last thirty years, Rendon has advised over five thousand political campaigns for executive and legislative levels of government, both provincial and municipal. He has been the recipient of several honorary awards for his defense of democracy, freedom, human rights, and educational support.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
