Unilateralism

This is an old revision of this page, as edited by Jazzman831 (Talk | contribs) at 12:03, 5 July 2007. It may differ significantly from current revision.

Unilateralism (literally "one"+"sided"-ism) is a political policy, which proscribes the support of one-sided action, even though this action may be contrary to compelling evidence supporting the opposition viewpoint.

Perhaps the most famous example of unilateralism was that of the Soviet Union during its existence; the USSR supported any form of communism while simultaneously denouncing the actions of the West. The United States has also practiced unilateralism at least since the end of Isolationism during World War I.
