A while back I posted a short essay which entirely disproved the idiotic Leftist notion of "USA CULTURAL Hegemony"; (CLICK HERE).

I will now demolish the Leftist idea of "USA Political Hegemony" - just by comparing the nations said to be under USA hegemony the last 50 years to the nations under Soviet of Jihadist hegemony.

All the nations under so-called USA hegemony expanded their human rights and their prosperity under USA influence and protection - while those under Soviet or Jihadist hegemony had less and less liberty, and became poorer and poorer - (until the whole shebang collapsed!):
Western Europe was better for people than Eastern Europe; South Korea was better for people than North Korea; Japan and the Philipines and Taiwan and Singapore - and South Vietnam and Thailand - were better for people than China and Cambodia and Laos. REPEAT: Hong Kong was better than China. Puerto Rico and the DR are better off than Cuba. Even India sucked until - like China - they abandoned Marxism and opened up to economic ties with the "evil greedy capitalistic USA!"

The last 2 decades of trade with the "evil greedy capitalistic " USA has lifted more Chinese out of poverty than the previous 5 decades of Marxist/Maoist idealism. We have exploited them right into the 21st century!
There is not a single solitary country which was under real USSR hegemony which did better than those under so-called "USA hegemony. " The walls were built to keep them in, not us out! The BOAT PEOPLE were fleeing Vietnam and Cuba, not San Diego or Boston!

And we didn't even EVER conscript their citizens, or tax the people in these "captive client states". In fact, the opposite is quite true: WE PAID EXTRA TAXES TO PROTECT THEM - WITH OUR CONSCRIPTS, OUR SOLDIERS, OUR BLOOD! We sacrificed for their freedom. That AIN'T "dominance"; that's humanistic heroism!

Noam Chomsky, and jerks like Chavez and Moore and Sheehan and Glover and Belafonte and Harkin who admire him, are just plain flat out wrong. TOTALLY FRIGGIN' WRONG.

The best thing for any nation the last 100 years was to become our ally.

AND NEVER FORGET THAT Saddam and Arafat and Assad and Khaddafy and Kim and Fidel - and MOST of the other real tyrants in the world who directly and indirectly threatened our national security (and the security of ourallies) - were supported by the USSR, NOT THE USA.

Sure: we tacitly supported Pinochet (and a few other unsavory authoritarians like Marcos) - but they were nothing compared to the Marxist tyrants. In fact, to this day Chile is one of the best economies in all of South America and it's a result of having been SAVED from Marxist tyranny and Soviet hegemony by PINOCHET!

So when you hear a Lefty start to whine about USA foreign policy over the last 50 years - or 50 months - and say that the USA is just doing the bidding of our power elite, the richest capitalist and industrialists (and Big Oil and Israel and Saudi Arabia) just tell them to STFU!
