In the socio-philosophical discourse, there was an opinion that ressentiment is formed in totalitarian societies, which are characterized by total control over their citizens, the formation of the image of the enemy, the use of methods of intimidation, violence, and terror. Such methods create conditions for mistrust, suspicion, fear, alienation. Fear, coercion, violence create the prerequisites for the formation of such negative feelings as anger, hatred, which are sources of ressentiment. At the present stage of development, most societies position themselves as democratic, proclaiming the rule of law, ideas of freedom and equality of all members of society, and in fact tendencies characteristic of many societies are revealed: violation of constitutional rights and freedoms, concentration of power in the executive branch, corruption, presence of authoritarian practices, censorship. Such societies are called totalitarian or non-liberal democracy societies. For these societies is characteristic manifestation of destructiveness, ressentiment. Within the framework of the actual article we identify the factors that contribute to the formation of ressentiment in non-liberal democracy societies and propose methods that reduce the level of aggression and ressentiment.
