Democracy has many aspects. It can act as a tool to empower people, as well as a mechanism for assessing the legitimacy of a government. But democracy can also be used by powerful elites as a device of control. In the post-Cold War era, democratization of the Third World has been developed by Western powers as a 'policy' that fuses both democratic rhetoric and support for more pluralist policies in the Third World, with the pursuit of Western interests.
