MGW 2010 Soft Power Good Grove/Petit Lab Soft power – multi warrant Soft power preserves peace, re-builds failed states, deters rogues, and prevents terrorism Michael Hirsh , former Foreign Editor of Newsweek, Foreign Affairs, September/October, 2002 There is a middle choice between the squishy globalism that the Bush sovereigntists despise and the take-it-or-leave-it unilateralism they offer up as an alternative. A new international consensus , built on a common vision of the international system , is possible . In today's world, American military and economic dominance is a decisive factor and must be maintained -- as the right believes -- but mainly to be the shadow enforcer of the international system Americans have done so much to create in the last century, in which the left places much of its trust. It is this international system and its economic and political norms that again must do the groundwork of keeping order and peace: deepening the ties that bind nations together; coopting failed states such as Afghanistan, potential rogues, and "strategic competitors"; and isolating , if not destroying, terrorists . As Henry Kissinger wrote, "the dominant trend in American foreign-policy thinking must be to transform power into consensus so that the international order is based on agreement rather than reluctant acquiescence."
