The major force of the Cold War was the conflict between the ideals of the western democracies and the ideals of the communist nations, most notably, the Soviet Union. The American commitment to democratic government, the belief in liberty for the individual, and a capitalist economy were incompatible with the ideals of the Bolsheviks and the creation of dictatorial, repressive, and ruthless state power, as exampled by Stalin in the USSR. While the United States did favor economic influence via trade relations with other nations, the Soviet bloc of nations favored actual take-over of other areas by military force or the theat of military force, to make other nations come under the influence and control of the Soviet/communist way of thinking.
