Imperialism. A policy in which many countries around the world used, extending their power and influence through military force and diplomacy. During the 19th century, the ideology of imperialism was very popular in the United States and in other European countries as well. This lead to many countries such as England, France, Germany, Russia including the U.S competing with each other searching for ways for justify their power and world- wide influence. Although many people believe was a great way to make uncivilized people civilized, become educated,etc some believed that imperialism did not free the countries in which those civilised nation conquered under imperialism.
Several factors prompted this decline such as: several economic problems, the rise of other trade routes, the European hunger for expansion, and weakness in the Ottoman government Furthermore, the Ottoman Empire was both politically and militarily strong, yet, it was too traditional and could not keep up with worldwide changes and modernity through time. Europe and the West were rapidly moving forward innovatively while the Ottomans stayed in their place for too long. All these problems led to the empire being less centralized in Europe. Simply, the Great Powers of Europe took advantage of this situation and allied to completely end the rule of Ottomans. To further affect the empire, European powers chose an Ottoman strength and turned it into a weak point.
The type of peace, temporary or more permanent, depends on how long it will last as conflict is a part of human nature, leading to the conclusion peace can lead to war. A temporary peace can be compared to putting a band-aid over a bullet hole; it might hold and stop the blood on the surface but there’s much more damage in the inside. The Treaty of Versailles was a band-aid to the other world problems after WW1. First when the treaty was being written the US, Britain and France could not agree to which degree the terms against Germany should be. The US wanted “peace without victory”, France wanted to cripple Germany and gain security from the treaty and Britain wanted middle ground of wat the US and Germany wanted (Treaty of Versailles: How America, France & Britain Benefited.).
Today, Europe is facing an identity crisis, which is why the idea of a new European culture course was particularly interesting, as everyone feels they come from a specific country in Europe, but don’t feel European anyways. Furthermore, if this course can be developed, the future policy makers of Europe can solve that identity crisis. 1.1 In the 19th century, Europe faced many ordeals, such as two world wars, a crisis that followed these wars, and a division within itself because of the Cold War. These ordeals have involved the damage of Europe’s unity and its external. When Germany was reunited and the Cold War was at its end, Europe’s integration became one of the main goals of the actors of Europe, which has been achieved by creating the Single Market and the European Union.
In the years leading up to 1850, European powers grappled for political and economic dominance of the international market. The Age of Discovery during the early modern period in Europe posed as period that redefined the idea of exploration. No longer was the reason for subjugating a group of people to European rule the main reason to colonize. Rather, the main reason for imperialism after 1850 was in regards to extraction of natural resources and economic control of the world market. After 1850, it became apparent that interests in overseas empires was ultimately inevitable as Europe began to industrialize and gain military and technological power.
If the British are gone, the colonies will fight against each other because now without the British, they are able to do what they want. Another con is that the current peace they have with England will be lost. Thousands of American lives will be lost if they fight against England. England is much bigger and they also hired German mercenaries to fight for them. The chances of winning the war is very slim and if they lose, they will have to face much harsher rule and taxes.
Great Britain went into debt after the French and Indian war causing them to have to find some way to make more revenue. In order to try to climb out of debt, Britain started to enforce new taxations and regulation such as the sugar, currency, and stamp act and the internal and external taxes (Brinkley, 112-113). With the taxations placed on the colonists there was a new found argument of “taxation without representation.” That was one of the main arguments for breaking away the Great Britain. Without that argument, the argument of the colonists separating from Great Britain might not have ever occurred. Another reason the French and Indian war helped start the oncoming American Revolution was all of the boycotts as a result of Britain trying to increase its revenue from the colonists and crawl out of debt.
Frances lost in the Indian war and the continuous rivalry caused the French wanting to give the British revenge. France ultimately wanted Britain not to be too powerful and in order todo so they had to be weakened by having the Americans win there
To conclude, in my opinion, this event is what sparked the war into action and without it the war wouldn’t of happened. Lastly, The most important person in the cause of the war is Franz Joseph Ⅱ. After his son was assassinated he made many demands Serbia had to fulfil. When Serbia didn’t meet the Duke’s demands he declared war on the country. Franz Joseph Ⅱwas the one who initiated the war when he declared it against Serbia which drawed the other Europeans into it because of their alliances.
The late nineteenth century was an error military competition, particularly between the major European powers. The policy of building a stronger military was judged relative to neighbors creating a culture paranoid that heighten the search for alliances. It was fed by the cultural belief that war was good for nations. Germany, in particular, looked to expand their Navy. However, the naval race was never a real contest.
They were supported by urban workers, westerners, and southerners who did not own slaves. Whigs however supported nationalism, and the government funding of what was considered “internal improvements” by them. The party eventually collapse due to shifting ideologies from The Compromise of 1850, as well as members splitting apart to from the Republican Party. A major issue at this time was states rights vs. that of national government as well as the issue of slavery in the Whigs party. The third political era was that of the Democrats and the Republicans in which they were evenly matched.
To top it off, Austria and Germany were to be reunified. The effect of him releasing these beliefs had a major impact, but not quite revolutionary. Its contents also began to worry the rest of Europe. Many believed he hoped to gain revenge on France for the Versailles Treaty, and that the policies expressed may be implemented. His popularity grew slowly but exponentially throughout the next few years.
Some effects on the plague had that I didn’t know was the political effect it had in Europe. I had no idea that peasants made a smart move in demanding for higher wages because they realized the need of peasants for lords were rising exponentially. I knew I wanted to do a powerpoint because I felt like it is the best way to have a lot of information instead of a song/play.
The new colonies wanted a successful economy and be their own society, but was held back for England. They choose to revolt in hopes of breaking away from all of the taxation and control that held them down. They wanted to make their own economic and political systems, but England wouldn 't allow it. The formation of the first colonies, in 1680, was the start of contrasting characteristics
The emergence of the Republican Party was not predicted to be as successful as is, as third parties usually aren’t, but this third-party had made a massive impact in United States politics. The social, political, and economic factors during the 1840s and the early 1850s had led to the Republican Party America is familiar with today. Once the political parties began to split and isolate themselves, the Republican Party began to form. The Whig Party, a party with original intents to compete with Jacksonian Democrats, had split due to the alienation of Whigs due to General Winfield Scott. Along with the Whig Party, the Democratic Party was also split due to alienation and separation between the Northern and Southern Democrats.
