You make it sound like "hegemony" is a bad thing.  According to m-w.com:
      1) preponderant influence or authority over others : domination
      2) the social, cultural, ideological, or economic influence 
exerted by a dominant group

If hegemony in the nature of operations, policy won't remove it. 
(Operations rules!)  My intent was to say that policy shouldn't 
(unduly) contribute to hegemony.  If we are lucky, policy may reduce 
it's negative impact.
