Foreign democracy revolution strategist David Steinman was a consulting expert to the U.S. National Security Council regarding the overthrow of Haiti’s notorious “Baby Doc” Duvalier that began the cascade of falling right-wing dictatorships at the end of the twentieth century. He later coordinated private support for Southeast Asian anti-Communist resistance movements. Mr. Steinman served as senior foreign adviser to Ethiopia's democracy movement for 27 years until its 2018 victory. He co-planned Ethiopia’s 2005 civil resistance and election campaign, voted that year’s “Most Important African Event” in a BBC poll, which inspired Money, Blood and Conscience.
