Free World

Posted by Muhammad Effandie Nordin at 8:58 PM
According to Wikipedia- The Free World is a Cold War-era term often used to describe states not under the rule of the Soviet Union, its Eastern European allies, thePeople's Republic of China and other communist nations. The term often referred to states such as the United States, Canada, and Western European states such as the United Kingdom, France, and West Germany (all members of NATO). In addition, it also sometimes includedanti-communist states of the British Commonwealth, Japan, Israel, India, and undemocratic anti-communist states such as Spain underFrancisco Franco, Greece under the military junta between 1967-1974, Chile under Pinochet, Brazil under military rule, and Taiwan underChiang Kai-Shek (see also "Free China").
Because of the United States' prominent role in the Cold War, the President of the United States was often dubbed the "Leader of the Free World". The term implies that the U.S. President, as leader of the principal democratic superpower, was, by extension, the leader of all the world's democratic states. Although it had a Cold War origin, it is still sometimes used to describe the U.S. President today. Peace You all...!!
