Hypocrisy Empire

by Dmitry MININ,

Hypocrisy Empire (I)
Back to Roots: American Democracy and Slavery

There have been many pretenders to world domination. They have all aspired to hegemony and claimed to have a unique mission to accomplish but each of them had special traits. What is the main specific feature of the American Empire to distinguish it from other empires in history? I believe it’s unparalleled hypocrisy penetrating the life in America and the country’s foreign policy

Hypocrisy Empire (II)

This is the year of great events in the United States as the country marks the 150-year anniversary of the Civil War. No other moment of American history has influenced more its national self-identification. The war has become an inalienable part of political mythology and a symbol of atonement as the country washed away the sin of slavery established in the society since the nation was born. It is perceived as the triumph of good over evil. In reality it was not a war to free slaves - this perception has nothing to do with real historic events and shows how hypocritical the whole US national ideology is. The free interpretation of national history to foster the self-esteem of Americans and the US prestige leads to the same attitude practiced by American researchers toward the historic heritage of other countries as well. http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2015/01/23/hypocrisy-empire-ii.html

Hypocrisy Empire (III)

The hypocrisy intrinsic to American policy is especially apparent in the use of soft or smart power. Joseph Nye, former Deputy to the Undersecretary of State for Security Assistance, Science, and Technology and Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, coined the term... Then he concluded that soft power alone was not enough so he came up with combination of hard and soft power... But soft power or hard power, American politicians always want the same thing – to establish their superiority at the lowest possible price...
