The Struggle for Democracy

Horowitz, Irving Louis
March 2006
National Interest;Spring2006, Issue 83, p114
The article comments on the promotion of democracy by the U.S. President George W. Bush Administration which has become the driving principle of its foreign policy. A zeal for spreading democracy is the emerging zeitgeist of the 21st century, replacing the egalitarian imperative that prevailed in the later 20th century. The administration's democratic strategy for establishing stability and equity in the Middle East invites confusion, if not outright derision.
