The paper discusses a question of whether we are entering a new era of global totalitarianism with recent power changes related to mass global communications via the Internet and modern technologies, and with an existence of the (global) ability of their masive control and misuse. The text consists of theoretical elaboration of the mere term „totalitarianism“ and of an empirical review of the development of a modern surveillance state. Also, current findings in surveillance studies are exposed, as well as most recent global surveillance revelations. The author draws conclusions on current totalitarian tendencies in a „post-Orwellian“ global surveillance state.
