The democratists relate to Schurmann's classification system as both imperialists and nationalists. They are imperialist in their triumphalist, interventionist view of the United States and nationalist in their missionary zeal to promote and protect American values across the globe. These two currents of thought are the intellectual forebears of democratism. Democratism seems to be very much a minority position. Neither major party espouses democratism as its dominant position on foreign policy issues.

Democratists favor the expansion of Nato's role to perform in outof-area missions. However they are not for any extension of Nato eastwards, as they fear this might antagonize or destabilize Russia. Democratists believe America ought to continue to dominate the alliance. They see an expanded Nato as the linchpin of the new post-Cold War security order. The carnage in Bosnia provoked a strong reaction from democratists. With their emphasis on human rights, democratists were particularly appalled by the specter of ethnic cleansing, enough to advocate American military intervention to end the horrendous human rights violations being propagated.

Despite these gneral theoretical criticisms and its lack of anything like majority support, democratism remains a viable major school of thought of American foreign policy in the new world order. It offers a coherent view of the new era, and a bullish triumphalist defense of the democratic values its adherents believe led to Western victory in the Cold War. It audaciously, amid all the fashionable talk of American decline and limits, argues for a robust extension of America, hoping to recreate the world in America's image to build a league of democracies that will make Kant's visionary title of l795, Perpetual Peace, a reality.
