A global democracy

There’s being a lot written along these lines all over the world…

bq.. One thing that I am struck by, […] is the inability for foreigners to affect US foreign policy. The US seems ready to ignore the UN and the rest of the world when they disagree with it.

So let me get this right. The US is going to become the world’s policeman and will *bomb the bad guys into democracy*. The US will become so rich and powerful that there will no longer be hatred and wars? The US will become the one nation to rule them all and American culture bind them?

…I think the US is going down the slippery slope of *becoming one of the most hated nations in the world* when it still possible for it to be one of the most loved nation if only it learned to listen to, respect and understand the rest of us. [ _emphasis mine_ ]
