In the United States, assistance to democratization has traditionally been considered to be in line with the interests of national security. At the same time, american political scientists are debating which countries and according to what criteria can be considered to be developing towards democracy, and whether the trends of global development are conducive to the proliferation of democratic values. Many reputed american scientists are skeptical of the prospects of democracy even in those countries where it is organic. The author puts forward the hypothesis that the changes in the economic and socio-cultural parameters of the global development will be followed by an adjustment in the democracy paradigm.
