Democracy Is Not Means for Interfering in Internal Affairs

With respect to the “Summit for Democracy” to be hosted by the United States, there is a heated debate going on among the countries of the world over the standard of democracy.

Many politicians and experts are asserting that there is no absolute standard of democracy, and it should be decided by whether the popular masses are widely involved in politics and whether the people’s needs are fully met.

This assertion shows that the international society, while going through the tragic aftereffects caused by the export of American-style “democracy”, has gradually started to be properly cognizant of democracy.

The way of integration of the Western countries with the U.S. at the core in the wake of the Second World War was based on the “American style”, taking it as their “universal standard” or “standard of value” in all fields, and these countries reconstructed by the American “aid” idealized the American-style “democracy” and accepted it as their political system.

Highly elated by this trend, the U.S. unhesitatingly labelled other countries with “anti-democracy system” while absolutizing and embellishing its unilateral standard, and leveraged the democracy for interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.

The lesson learned from the Afghan crisis has illustrated however that what the people of those countries gained from the democracy the U.S. had sought to export was not the democracy and the improved human rights, but merely the political disorder, degradation of economic life and miserable plights of refugees caused as a result of disintegration of their systems.

Even the Western media are lamenting that the “Summit for Democracy” hosted by the U.S. is a risky adventure, and the American commitment to democratic values and human rights comes as empty, more so because the U.S. has withdrawn from Afghanistan.

As it may mock the fate of American-style “democracy”, a recent poll indicates that over 80 percent of respondents in the U.S. and the UK see the politicians of their countries as stooges of capital, and hold the views that the American democracy is facing a potential danger.

Whether the democracy of a given country is good or bad should be decided by the people of that country, not by the United States.

The U.S. should not use the American-style “democracy” as a tool for interfering in the internal affairs of other countries. The American “democracy” is not welcomed even by its citizens.
