Super-power chauvinism

Other Names:
Super-power exclusiveness

Nature:

The policies of super power chauvinism are aimed at enslaving other ('lesser power') nations; discriminating against them in economic, political, and cultural fields; or denying their independence. Super power chauvinism, like chauvinism in general, tends to kindle hatred and enmity between peoples, and persecutes and harasses persons of different nationalities.

Background:

Super power chauvinism arose in the era colonial empires were being formed; the Nazi era during the second World War is an example of the attempt to push super power chauvinism onto a whole continent.

Incidence:

Modern day examples of super power chauvinism are American intervention in Vietnam and the former Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan.
