America has been known as the prosperous place of freedom since the founding of the colonies. Much like any great nation, America has its downfalls. However failures are not what defines America, but rather how this nation has learned from their mistakes, improved, and continues to grow. In the article “Is the United States a Declining Power?” Andrew J. Bacevich claims yes, America is a declining power while Dr. Fareed Zakaria says no, America is not a declining power. Ramesh Ponnuru takes a conservative stance in his article “An exceptional Debate: The Obama Administration’s Assault on American Identity.” These articles discuss in detail where the authors feel the future of America is heading.

This happened because both economic and military interests were too much at stake in the Straits Settlements and therefore only direct rule could ensure the British interest in the region. Therefore, Malaya was geographically ‘hybrid’ in its colonial practices as different regions called for different colonial strategies and can as such, constitute an interesting study case of both
Imperializing through diplomacy was the act of investing in a foreign country with the hope that it would improve diplomatic relations with other nations and help stabilize the foreign country’s governments while preventing other nations from having power over the foreign country. This particular kind of imperializing was called Dollar Diplomacy. It left Nicaragua and Haiti in American occupation for 13 years and 19 years, respectively. Another kind of diplomacy was Missionary Diplomacy. This version of diplomacy urged oppressive governments to take on a more democratic government like the United
The dependency on Europe and North America by the Region, therefore, is the evidence of the empire the West has built by imperialism, and perpetual profit or loss of imperialism for a state, depending on which side of the divide that state stands. Imperialism does not end. The imperial power merely changes. Active, conspicuous imperialism might be latent in some states of the Region, but it surely is not absent. Independence and freedom alone can guarantee an end to imperialism, but ‘independence’ and ‘freedom’ are relative conceptions.
- Imperialism (18th and 19th century) very different compared to explorations (15th and 16th century) - Earlier imperial powers didn’t influence the people’s lives - Europeans demanded more influential power over the economic, political, and social lives of people - Determine to shape the economy that would benefit the Europeans - Wanted the people to adopt the European ways - Each European nation had their own policy on creating colonies - For control on areas, each nation had their own types of techniques - 4 forms of colonial control: colony, protectorate, sphere of influence and economic imperialism - Two methods of management: indirect control and direct control - Britain and the U.S.A. choose Indirect control while France and other
Many have argued that imperialism and colonialization is the same thing since they involve a practice of an invasion of a region by a more dominant and superior country, but that is not the case. Colonization is a process by which a central system of power dominates the surrounding land and its components. It is an idea, custom or practice peculiar to a colony. Imperialism on the other hand is the forceful extension of a nation’s authority by territorial gain or by the establishment of the economy and /or political dominance over other nations. Colonialism is when a country conquers and rules over another region by means of exploiting the resources of the conquered country for the benefit of the conqueror.

Colonists came to see their legislatures as colonial alternatives of parliament on its own. They also showed how they understood their membership in the empire to be voluntary or on their own, not forced. • The political legacy of the Great Awakening-particularly the emphasis on individual choice and resistance to authority-corresponded to the developments in the colonial political world. For the most of the seventeenth century, ties within the empire developed from trade rather than governance. But as America grew in wealth and size, the king and parliament sought out to manage colonial affairs more directly.
According to him, “New England’s experience was fundamentally different from that of every other area of the early modern British world (p. 165)”. However this “normative character” of southern society’s value and behavior is hard to accept. Furthermore, his evidence and research have been conducted entirely from the colonial period and can be deemed too narrow when looking at the broadness of “American culture”. He concludes that the southern colonies epitomized the American ideal of the pursuit of happiness by an independent person in a setting, that provided significant opportunity for success.Conclusively, Jack P. Greene’s Pursuit of Happiness is at once a liberally synoptic survey of the Anglo-Atlantic colonial world and a dauntless essay. It rests at once on an unparalleled command of voguish scholarship and on a daring high-wire act of historical imagination.
To D’lorenzo these ideas would get in the way of a total free market, and reminded him more of Imperial Europe than the United States that the Founding Fathers wanted to create (one based on as much economic freedom as possible). This to me is very valid. Lincoln’s platform is derived from the Whig party as he was once one. Lincoln also supported many protectionist style Tariffs such as both Morrill Tariffs. To D’Lorenzo these were against the founding fathers
In this case we can visualize that as Imperial power spread by cause of the Civilizing mission, so too did influence and culture, effectively shrinking the globe. After the first World War the civilizing mission aided globalization through the Mandate system. This system allowed Imperial powers the ability to influence less civilized nations based on the idea that they needed help to become more modernized. In the Peace Treaty of which the Mandate system is outlined, Article 22 stated that the Imperial powers should have varying levels of influence based on how developed a country already was, which happened to be more about how much like the British the nation was. Of course these new spheres of influence shrunk the world again as nations such as Britain, France, Japan, Belgium, Australia and New Zealand gained new access into the Mandated nations.
