It overlooks de facto control of client states, and overlooks the importance of economic domination[Example(s) needed].
Adrian Salbuchi has argued that the notion of sovereign independent states organising as they see fit is in fact an illusion, fulfilling the same purpose as party politics - i.e. as a convenient window dressing to cover over the Machiavellian business of deep politics. Evidence for this includes:
- the apparent coordination of supposedly independent nation's policies - such as, for example, the creation of a global "war on terror"
- the existence of clandestine deep state milieux such as the Bilderberg, Le Cercle, the Club of Berne
- the apparently contradictory tendency of "democracies" to empower puppet leaders who are not, in fact, leaders at all.
Counter arguments to the theories of hidden organization are that the globalised world naturally leads to parallel evolution of similar policies, that states are not controlled "puppets", but independently arrive at similar policies such as bailing out banks.
