Crossword help!  
by hoosierscotts (US), Last modified: 2016-05-26, 19:58  Spam?  
I am working on updating an old edition of an intermediate-level Italian language (US) workbook.  So, I discovered that on a crossword puzzle (Parole crociate), a clue was left out for a word.  The original author is not available to help.  
From the context (political history/fascism) I believe the word is the adjective "totalitario."  I need help writing a very short clue, and I'm not confident in machine translation.  Regime, tolerate, and dissent are used in this chapter.  Would it be correct to write: "Regime che non tollera il dissenso"?  Or, "Regime che è intollerante di dissenso" ?  What wording is brief but grammatically correct?  Thank you so much in advance for your advice!

I think "Regime che non tollera il dissenso" and "Regime che è intollerante a (!) dissenso" are grammatically ok. A bit shorter would be: "Regime intollerante a dissenso". But these are the definitions of the noun "totalitarian regime".

Maybe the definitions in monolingual Italian dictionaries will help you:

...

Perhaps you could define the adjective with "dittatoriale, senza dissenso" (or only "dittatoriale" or "senza dissenso").

The guy above me got it almost right

"Regime che non tollera il dissenso"  Is correct and fitting, I suggest using this.
"Regime che è intollerante di dissenso" Is wrong, correcting it results in something like this
"Regime intollerante al dissenso" .
"Intollerante" is not a word commonly used in the sense it has here, thus i suggest using the first translation.
