English term or phrase:renders (en este contexto)
"Today as never before, however, we see authoritarian rulers making sometimes amazing contortions to persuade the world (if not their own people) that their right to rule flows from the holding of free elections. The reality, of course, is that these regimes’ basic principle is “The opposition must never be allowed to win.” And unfortunately, those contortions sometimes receive help from the benevolent, oblivious glance that the great powers often cast on countries which control strategic geopolitical or economic resources.
In such cases, vice renders tribute to virtue by implicitly acknowledging that the principle of popular sovereignty, at least of the sovereignty exercised in the act of freely choosing who will govern for some time, has won the war of ideas nearly worldwide."
