American-Style “Democracy” Shaken to its Roots

There is a proverb that goes: “He who digs a pit for others falls into it.”

The U.S. fell into this pit when it staged recently the “Summit for Democracy” that lacks justification, widely publicizing someone’s threat to democracy.

It is because this summit has revealed the insidious intention of the U.S. which tried to make it as an occasion of appeasing and deceiving many countries into confrontation and the cold war that have nothing in common with democracy, with its own dire situation of democracy being camouflaged with a glittering package of “democracy”.

On December 10, the spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry mentioned that the greatest threat to global democracy is posed by the country which is hell-bent on military intervention in all parts of the world while taking the liberty of interfering in others’ internal affairs and imposing unilateral sanctions under the signboard of “democracy”.

The Chinese Newspaper “Global Times” reported the fact that even the U.S. State Secretary admitted that the erosion of democracy occurs in the U.S. and that millions of people are suffering from dissemination of false information, racial discrimination and inequality. The media of France, Switzerland and the U.S. also scathingly denounced that the main hole of democracy is inside the U.S. itself which has been polarized than ever before and that Washington must first fix its own democracy.

Many figures from the political and academic circles in the world are of one accord in commenting that the summit was used as a gambling place and the theatre of confrontation by the U.S. administration in its unprecedented political crisis to cover up its fault, raise its prestige and publicity stunt and to justify its pressure on and confrontation with the sovereign states.

It is never accidental that the President of South Africa refused to participate in the summit after the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of his country, at an interview, had expressed his astonishment at the mention in the letter of official invitation issued by the U.S. administration that the U.S. has always supported human rights.

As was shown by the appraisal of the international society, this summit was clearly a stage of high-handedness and arbitrariness set by the U.S. to get thumbprints from the sovereign states, an important occasion of betraying the foul nature of the U.S. which tried to justify its interference and invasion of other countries under a thin veneer of “democracy”.

Now the world people ridicule the U.S. that the way to saving the U.S.-style democracy is not to bluff as if it can “save” democracy of the world showing off the 4 hundred million dollars which is meagre enough compared to the vast expenses squandered on the U.S. presidential elections, but to use that money to provide a meal for its own poverty-stricken people.

The U.S. should see squarely that now is no longer the 20th century when the high-handedness, arbitrariness, interference and invasion were hailed “democracy”, and that its act of hoodwinking the world by harping on about “democracy” to sustain its hegemony can no longer work.
