economic hegemony has generated enormous hostility to an

Samuel Phillips Huntington, a
close associate of Zbigniew Kazimierz
Huntington, analyzing this "democratic surge," showed that throughout the
1960s and into the early 1970s there was a dramatic increase in the percentage
of people who felt military spending was too high.
From 18% in 1960 to
52% in 1969, largely due to the Vietnam

Samuel Phillips Huntington
concluded that many problems
of governance in the US stemmed from an "excess of democracy," and that,
"the effective operation of a democratic
political system usually requires some measure of apathy and
noninvolvement on the part of
some individuals and groups."
Huntington explained that
society has always had "marginal groups" which do not
participate in politics, and while acknowledging that the existence of "marginality on the part of
some groups is inherently undemocratic," it has also "enabled democracy to function
Huntington identified "Blacks"
as one such group that had become politically active, posing a "danger of overloading the political system

2005 Zbigniew Kazimierz
Brzezinski writes an essay for The American Interest labeled, "The
Dilemma of the Last Sovereign," in which he explains the geopolitical
landscape that America and the world find themselves in:
"For most states, sovereignty now verges on
being a legal fiction."
Kazimierz Brzezinski publishes an article based on a speech he delivered to the
London-based Chatham House in their academic journal, International
Chatham House, formerly the Royal Institute of
International Relations, is the British counterpart to the US-based
Council on Foreign Relations.
His article, "Major foreign

this critical juncture.
