What is the National Endowment for Democracy?
“Democracy building” is one of the core beliefs of neoconservatives. But what they call democracy and what most people think of as democracy bear very little resemblance to each other. Neoconservatives are obsessed to maintaining and expanding US power. It is about realizing their vision of a “New American Century.” See http://www.newamericancentury.org/. This is incompatible with real democracy in which the people of the world’s sovereign nations exercise their self-determination.
In order to “build democracy” and to insure US hegemony, it is necessary to provide mechanisms that will insure people in other countries elect those who will submit themselves willingly to the New American Century. In other words, the neocons need programs that will insure that other people will vote the “right” way. Thus, US democracy building programs are actually anti-democratic programs aimed at distorting and manipulating foreign elections to support US hegemony.
We know the NED promotes US imperialism rather than freedom, so you can join a campaign today that exposes the NED, the neocon agenda, and demands an alternative foreign policy.
