The nation would be more capable of deciding what was best for the other underdeveloped countries in the surrounding region. The diplomacy was based upon the American belief that American ideals were the way of the future for the world; what was good for the US must as well be good for the countries of Latin America. The Hispanic newspaper Regeneración of April 13, 1912, quoted Robert M. La Follette's criticism of the diplomacy. He regarded the diplomacy as an outpost, intervening the nations in Central and South America by imposing the US's method and supervision. The diplomacy often resorted to military power as a solution to the internal conflicts within the region.
March of 1775 was a day of persuasion for steps towards freedom. A former governor of Virginia, Patrick Henry wrote the speech “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” in response to British conflict and wanting to peacefully approach it with a reasonable effort. The British were enforcing more soldiers into the colonies and the Americans wanted their liberty. Henry advocated for the colonist to fight if their circumstances were not met with the British. Being a former governor, Henry had the knowledge of how the government system worked and was a figure who was looked up to in the state of Virginia.
In Kogury¬, a state university called T’aehak-kam was established in 372 and private Confucian academies were founded in the province. Paekche also set up institutions. The Choson Dynasty, which was established accepted Confucianism as the official ideology and developed a Confucian system of education, ceremony and civil administration. When Korea was invaded by many West European countries including Japan in the late 19th century, the Confucianists raised "righteous armies" to fight against the aggressor. Today, Confucian ancestral worship is still prevalent and filial piety highly revered as a virtue in Korean

Third, the samurai helped the Japanese protect themselves but then led to Medieval Japan’s
The shift to a military government was reasoning behind the samurai class and evident through the loyal and honorable, yet stoic and disciplined, culture of this time (“Kamakura Period”). The bushido code faced much outside influence, but core emphasis was placed on living frugally, upholding honor, and honing athletic and mental strength in order to remain fearless during battle. The Tokugawa period
The years of the Eastern Zhou Dynasty were a golden age for Chinese philosophy. Confucius lived during this era, teaching his ideals of duty to society, individual virtue, and tradition. Also in this period, a philosopher named Laozi founded Taoism, which emphasized passivity and social inaction to achieve individual peace. On the other hand, philosophers who advocated Legalism claimed that the state was much more important than the individual and that individuals had to conform completely to the decrees of their supreme rulers. Finally, Mohism was a philosophy that advocated equality for all people, as well as merit-based power and universal love.
Confucianism also teaches about the necessary principles of governing. In Legalism, the most important principles to governing properly are having clear laws that are firmly imposed and possessing a strong military. Confucius agrees that a military is one of the necessary governing principles. When asked about governing principles he lists three things: sufficient food, an ample military, and trust people have for the governmental powers (Confucius Speaks, 88). However, probably much to the disagreement of Legalists, the military is the first thing Confucius knocks of the list, seeing it as the most unessential of the three (Confucius Speaks, 88).
Confucianism is an ethical and philosophical system, on occasion described as a religion, developed from the teachings of the Chinese philosopher Confucius .It has a monumental impact upon the life, social structure, and political philosophy of China for more than 2500 years.

I think this is the ancient wisdom which can be adopted as the rule of behavior both in ancient and modern world. I know these five
Another method used by the Japanese in order to gain economic stability was to forcefully invade neighboring countries such as China and Manchuria using the strength of her military. The neighboring countries would provide essential and useful raw materials as well as heavy industry that Japan needed in order to become a more productive nation. The nation also tried to limit importing of goods from the West and becoming less dependent and fully independent as a nation by producing their own
As mentioned in ‘War, the American State, and Politics since 1898’, with regards to the Korean War being distinct to the Cold War, “the U.S. Army’s integration … had a galvanizing influence on the extension of new rights for a marginalized minority group that served honorably in an armed conflict”. The Korean War was also seen as an internal conflict as it began with Kim and Rhee. There were plans to unite Korea during the Moscow Conference. Rhee strongly opposed but Kim was in favor as he had the support of USSR. The subsequent forming of 2 separate governments of different ideology within the same country was indication of a civil war.
Frontier needs and ideas were conditioned for American nationalistic system to legislate internal improvements in tariff and land. Frontier conditions worked against sectionalism both economically and socially. Promotion of democracy was its vital effect as was individualism. “Professor Herbert L.Osgood, in an able article, has pointed out that the frontier conditions prevalent in the colonies are important factors in the explanation of the American Revolution, where individual liberty was sometimes confused with absence of all effective government.”(Source 1). Frontier individualism encouraged democracy from its onset in its promotion.
By having troops around the globe, the Administration felt they could properly prevent any attack or threat to the United States. This granted the executive branch the power to use the troops for anything they felt would protect the nature. No longer would the President have to go to war through Congress. Cheney and Rumsfeld changed the “Washington Rules” from being about containment to liberation. The United States no longer had to contain the spread of communist, but instead had to liberate the countries of the Middle East that they felt were run by an improper government.
