    • The Western Zones of Germany were the most democratic, because there were free elections which were not rigged and a range of parties which people could vote for, each which had their own true identity. In contrast, the Soviet Zone was not at all democratic, because there was not a 'true range' of parties. Even if it didn't look like it all parties were effectively voting for the communists therefore totalitarian.
