The Case for a Tripartite Democratic World Order

The rise of the three neo-imperialist powers of China, Iran and Russia and the inevitability that China will eventually grow more powerful than America due to China’s greater demographic size once Beijing begins to economically catch up with Washington requires a new world order. Rather than one democratic superpower should we envision a world order with three democratic superpowers, the United States, the European Union and the Republic of India. Of course India is nowhere near becoming a superpower due to its relatively low level of economic development but this may well change in the coming decades. The European Union however has tremendous potential for becoming a superpower. All it needs to do is to build a unified European military in order to become a power to be reckoned with. The democratic world should proactively promote the economic development of India in facilitating for their domestic industries to outsource specifically to India. There needs to be a global free trade zone for liberal democracies that will provide a friendly environment and international safeguards for international outsourcing and India specifically will benefit from that. America alone cannot in the long term compete with China but the US, EU and India combined certainly can and must do so.
