Summary/Abstract: In the article author pays attention to the basie Polish definitions of authoritarianism and provides references to his own basie works in this field, which were published in Polish and several foreign languages. In reflection on contemporary political systems, author notes that in Europę of inereasing globalization nothing looks like revival of historical nineteenth-century or twentieth-century authoritarian and totalitarian states. Author is considering that that right-wing extremism has become the greatest threat to Western Europę. But the dam for them (rather unbreakable at the moment) are making non extremistic left and right, united in the name of memory of the twentieth century - century of destruction.
