The traditional ideas and beliefs focusing on theory and methodology, that were implemented into their previous education system, were then modified to a practical approach, forcing their pre-existing system to slowly descend into oblivion. These western ideas concealed them from spreading their own culture, and placed their country in brief turmoil as they struggled to create a uniform education system after independence. Additionally, the true purpose of the railroads they established according to Dadabhai Naoroji, in his article, “The Benefits of British Rule for India” was to transport the raw material produced from India’s interior, rather than benefiting travel. Priyamvada Gopal also states in her article “The Story Peddled by Imperial Apologists [Defenders] is a Poisonous Fairy Tale” that during the construction of the railroads the British not only
Those same Virginians, as tobacco planters and slave-owners, were also deeply upset by imperial trade policy The governments response’s to the burgesses petitions would affect the allegiance to Britain by men like Jefferson and Washington. ‘What worried the states men in the mother country was the likelihood that, if Virginians had occupied Kentucky, Indians would attack them, and the British might have to come and rescue at great cost to the imperial treasury” (5) The 1758 Treaty of Easton, which gave the Indians all the land west of the Appalachian, did not help their cause. Holton alludes to many other instances where the colonists wanted to expand but was consistently overlooked by the imperial government. The Indians caused the British to fear another war. Essentially, Holton makes it seem like the British were more on the side of the Indians then they were for their own colonists.
Separately, these acts did not cause the American revolution but together the acts created tension between the American colonists and England. The Stamp act started to build the tension between the colonists and England because it was the first tax directly imposed onto the colonists. They saw this as unfair because during the French and Indian war the colonist were ignored and then suddenly they were expected to pay off Britain’s war debt. The Stamp Act led to the Declaratory Act which led to many other laws given by King George the III and Parliament because of the backlash received from the colonists. The Boston tea party was an effect of the Tea Act enacted on the American colonists.
Farmers did not like the Acts because their debts increased so they were forced to sell part of their land. When they sold their land, the British creditors buying it would cheat them out of what their land was actually worth. Colonial leaders were puzzled and all the things that would go to them went to the King of England. Finally, Samuel Adams criticized the government about all the Acts. He organized a rebel group, the Sons of Liberty, to protest the Acts.
This had a big effect on Britain’s tea company which lead to the Tea Act of 1773. Parliament realized what had happened so they decided to help the Americans obey the law, instead of fighting it, by lowering the tax amount which caused their tea price to be cheaper than that of the Dutch. (147) But many Americans saw this as a trick, “The real goal,…was the increased revenue that would pay the salaries of royal governors and judges…reassertion of Britain’s right to tax the colonists.”(147) The Sons of Liberty tried to make the tea agents resign, causing tension throughout the area. However, Hutchinson did not give up. He refused to allow ships to leave the port without paying the tea duty.
The Sugar Act, also known as the American Revenue Act or the American Duties Act, was one of the laws that led to anger, dislike, disagreement, and eventually revolution in Colonial America. Another effect was an increase in smuggling and crime in the colonies. The colonists did not want to pay the outrageous taxes so they looked for ways not to have to pay. A third effect was the colonists decided to stop buying luxury products from Great Britain and looked to local manufacturers for their products. They did this to avoid paying the high
The taxes and events that took place because of the British trying to make things better ended into the beautiful land of America we live in today. These events and taxes the British brought put up caused their own demise, putting tighter and tighter control that led to a revolution in colonial
The Ottomans, Britain, and France won the war. However, after the war countries from mainly Europe, but also Asia began taking the Ottomans land. An Ottoman leader, Muhammad Ali broke away from the Ottoman Empire and began having his people harvest cotton. His grandson continued to modernize and helped the French with building the Suez Canal, which connected the Mediterranean to the Red Sea.

The entry of European settlers on the eastern shore of the US which was an intensely populated region by Native Americans, sustained a government fear including broad clash. This "Indian Issue" originated from the failure of the racial social orders to exist together with each other in a similar group. In light of the "Indian Issue" the United States ' Government advanced in setting up reservations. The landscapes would be only claimed and occupied by the Native Americans. Basically, this thought was an old type of process of renovating and improving the community so that it conforms to middle-class taste.
Mill basically inherited the anti-imperialist views from his predecessor liberal thinkers like Bentham, James Mill and Adam Smith (Sullivan, 1983). Bentham, James Mill and Smith have argued against imperialism and have negated the idea that it serves any economic profit to England. Instead they believed that colonisation led to disproportionate capital flow to colonies. They also negated the argument of colonies being an outlet for capital surplus. They maintained that colonisation can only be a remedy for capital surplus if greater amount of England’s capital is not invested in governance of colonies which they regarded is the case with most of the England’s colonies.
