Democracy: A Tool To Further Geopolitical Interests
Updated: Apr 1
If we look at the history of Diplomatic Ties and Geopolitical Influences over time. You can easily find some specific countries, that have a habit of Interfering with internal matters of Developing countries in name of Democracy. We can all agree that Democracy is indeed an effective system. But, Some countries have used it as a Tool to further their own National Interests.
If you closely look at their actions, you will notice that they have military alliances with Undemocratic Countries but they will continue to lecture other countries on Democracy. And sometimes they engineer regime changes as well in name of Democracy.
So, if there are countries that do not suit their National interests, They are bound to interfere in internal matters of those countries regardless of if they are democratic nations or not. So, let’s discuss current incidents that prove my points.
USA And India
Recently, some interesting things have happened in both USA and India. In both countries, Prominent Elections are coming. Now, in the USA the main opposition leader “Donald Trump” has been “Indicted”. And In India, the main opposition leader “Rahul Gandhi” has been convicted. In both cases, Judiciary is doing its work. But, in India once convicted for 2 years you lose your MP seat. But, In the USA you can run for Presidential Elections, even if you are convicted.
So, As a result of getting convicted for 2 years by the court, “Rahul Gandhi” has been Disqualified as a Member of Parliament. He has been convicted for defaming the “Whole” “ Modi Community”, but Wikipedia tells you that he has been convicted for defaming “Narendra Modi”. So, probably writers of Wikipedia were not even bothered to read the court’s reasons for Convicting him. Obviously, they will not be, because they probably belong to the same Ecosystem.
Dual Definition Of Democracy
As the opposition leader of the World’s Largest Democracy got convicted by the court. Some special countries who think they are the progenitor of Democracy started to comment and condemn Indian Democracy. Even if they know that Judiciary is a part of the Democratic System and no one should be above it, but, they want in India’s case to make the opposition leader above the judiciary.
They suddenly get “concerned” about the world’s largest Democracy. But, they have nothing to say for the USA, as in the case of “Donald Trump"
German government questions Indian Judiciary, as is clear from their statement, you can search it to read. And the USA says Watching It Closely. And you can easily predict which countries are going to make such remarks. I get surprised to see the inefficiency of the Security Forces of the USA, the UK, Australia, and Canada in matters of Security of the Indian Embassy there. Even their Intelligence department surrendered probably.
Nowadays, If you watch closely you can easily predict which countries are using Democracy as a tool for furthering their Geopolitical Interests. And if you have watched it closely, you will not get surprised by their actions and remarks. We can conclude that Definitions of Democracy change according to the Geopolitical Interests of various countries. Sometimes Democracy becomes a shield and sometimes a sword. And some countries have mastered this tool named “Democracy”, so one should not be surprised if that tool is used.
