No surprise, then, in the fact that the USA, for nearly one century already the world superpower, follows the example of previous empires and kingdoms with similar or much less capacity.
In the Cold War, for example, those efforts by the main powers of the Western and the Soviet blocs became one of the basic tenets or pillars of the entire system, with the world divided in two clearly defined alliances and the rest: the so called Third World.
The following video offers a look at how the US has tried, after the Cold War, to bring to life and mantain favorable «democracies», plutocracies, kleptocracies around the world through USAID, National Endowment for Democracy and NGOs such as George Soros’ Open Society Institute.
