Even if the U.S. government manages to stop other countries from progressing democratically, they can't stop progress on every front. Cultural ideas will still spread around the world. With the help of internet video, this exchange of ideas between everyday people is made even easier and more affecting. Witness different U.S. cities now taking up the issue of bicycle rental programs. These are not government-initiated programs - they're popular organizing, with people pressuring their local rulers to implement particular policies.
