Hegemony

(noun) preponderant influence or authority over others; the social, cultural, ideological, or economic influence exerted by a dominant group

Which groups might be described as having a hegemonic influence over society?

Are hegemonies are positive or negative force? What might this depend on? How would different groups answer this question differently?

Do hegemonies vary from country to country? Why? In what way?
