The utopian ambitions of neoliberalism are not limited to economic doctrine. The neocolonial expansion of markets is tied up with a militant imposition of Western democracy. The use of military violence to enforce capitalism complicates the mythos of globalization that implies universal consent and benefit, and so requires its own mythological nuances. One form this takes is called democratic peace theory in political science, which holds that the world will be at peace once all non-democratic forms of government are eliminated. This is based on a statistical tendency for democracies to not wage war on each other. This Orwellian approach to peace through war is part of the geopolitical discourse of neoliberal globalization.
A solider of peace.
