Official narrative

Wikipedia takes a narrow view of this term and considers only the most blatant puppet states. It also conflates puppet leader, which is clearly a different concept.


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:

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.
