Abstract: The author questions why Americans cannot refrain from preaching about democracy to the world. He explains how the creed of exporting democracy differs from the creed of expanding empire. He suggests that Americans need to work towards aiding political parties, journalists, and others in countries where dictators try to suppress them. He maintains that the national faith that Americans share in the value of democracy is not wrong, despite the world's skepticism.
