I think you are missing the point here a bit. We don't need an "American-led" world (or China, Russia, or else). It is about time to put behind this idea of 'super-powers' who rule 'by example'. To say "no" to overwhelming, benevolent, forces from those modern (or even progressive) new empires. What we all need, if it is there to be a future for the Humanity is a multi-polar world, where no one has the absolute or final saying over the other parts without having to listen to them with multilateral agreements. Otherwise, sooner or later, any unfettered self-righteous state who believe they are a paradigm to be followed by anyone else end up doing all kinds of atrocities, even though they did not intended it in first place.
