The Decay of the American Ideas

The 20th century was definitely the century of the United States of America. Nothing changes even the fact that for almost half a century the world was bipolar, divided into spheres of influence of two superpowers – the USA and the USSR. The confrontation forced both sides to develop more intensively, analyzing their mistakes and adopting the enemy’s experience. Ultimately, it benefited the same U.S., the Soviet concept of modernization lost the competition.

Euphoria from ideological triumph and individual economic and military leadership plunged the US into the temptation of neo-imperial foreign policy. The advancement of the American idea of modernization, which by the time evolved to globalization, was increasingly reinforced by force. The escalation of force pressure has generated such a powerful wave of anti-Americanism that it has become almost an official ideology even in developed countries. Not surprisingly, many today believe that the elements of the American development model were aggressively imposed on other civilizations of the planet, destroying their original way of development.

But such judgments only testify to the fact that the time of the domination of the American idea has expired and it is no longer an innovative project, which was enthusiastically borrowed by other countries. However, 60 years ago American modernization brought many countries of the world out of the deadlock, offering them a new, progressive model for that time.

The American model possessed impressive power and attractiveness and reached a truly global scale. Chilean historian Claudio Veliz compared the impact of the American idea on modern societies with the Hellenization of the ancient world, and the victorious procession of American English was compared with the spread of the Greek.

The ideologists of the American model often reminded that America literally became a refuge for all the offended and needy. But it was very problematic to form something integral from immigrants. A young and diverse American society was in dire need of a single ideology that could create from this crowd a nation without a nationality, a nation based on an idea. Given the complexity of the task, the idea was to have such strength and attractiveness that it would meet the aspirations of the arriving and could eclipse their ethnic identity.

The 20th century was definitely the century of the United States of America. Nothing changes even the fact that for almost half a century the world was bipolar, divided into spheres of influence of two superpowers – the USA and the USSR. The confrontation forced both sides to develop more intensively, analyzing their mistakes and adopting the enemy’s experience.
