(Gellar 1986,122) Consequently, the Europeans started conquering many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, imposed many unjust rules, forced many to Westernize, and treated them harshly. The Europeans’ discriminatory attitude towards the Africans greatly affected them in so many ways. They, too, started to think they were inferior and their culture was unworthy of embracing. Consequently, some started adopting Christianity, learning European languages, and some even adopted their way of
The next advancement created by the Europeans was the imperialism across Africa. Many different countries started to invade Africa without regards of the of the Africans, for their own benefit and it spread so many negative effects to the African people. The final reason that shows how the negative effects of industrialization and imperialism were far greater than the positive ones, is how many of the outcomes are still visible and occurring today. The Industrial Revolution was a time of new inventions and methods of production, such as factory work. The results of industrialism led to many positive, such as the many new advancements, and negative effects, including the hardships and burdens placed on the people, but the hardships the people gained outweighed the positive effects.
British imperialism had a negative impact on the politics and economy of India because the army, justice system, government and resources of India were run to benefit the British, not the Indians. The British, however, had a positive social impact on India because the British revolutionized Indian society, and got rid of many negative social concepts that the Indians went by. British imperialism had a negative impact on the politics of India because
As Europeans states industrialized, they wanted to expand overseas and establish colonies in Africa. European imperialism affected the economy of natives because they removed all the crops to replace them with cash crops beneficial for them. That angered the Native people of Africa. Their resources were being replaced, and it wasn't benefiting them. That lead to natives loosing their independence which made them feel oppressed and frustrated.
Economic prosperity had a major impact on the advancement of African imperialism. The venture these countries took in the African markets was a gamble, but it payed out in the end. During the European great depression in the late 19th century, economists saw the imperialization of
One common mission the British had when coming to the America was to spread religion. They introduced Christianity the most throughout the land. Sometimes the people weren’t as accepting of the new religion and which the British would then try to force it on them, although this called many disputes. Another influence the European’s had was, they influenced slavery. It was a way to not have to pay for people to do the work or pay little to nothing and keep the majority of the profits to yourself.
Nationalism in the 19th century truly set the boundaries for Europe’s newly reformed nations. With technological innovations like the steam engine and Maxim rifle European countries now held a power truly feared by others. With this power, they began to triumphantly expand all over the world. Africa was the country that bore the most sufferable pain. Europe imperialism over Africa resulted in situations where people like King Leopold completely abused and mistreated entire African tribes.
Europe had colonized approximately 90% of the continent by 1914, ignoring how unjust not seeking African participation had been. African leaders had no representation during the proceedings to divide their land. With only the countries of Liberia and Ethiopia remaining independent, Europeans were at their height. The first main driving force for European imperialism in Africa was political competition. European political rivalry for Africa’s land only intensified the already tense situation, giving further reason for European countries to colonize Africa.
These people had lived in North America for millions of years, but when the Europeans began to explore this newfound land, the Native Americans were treated as inferior humans who had absolutely no value. They were ripped from their homes, killed, or forced to move elsewhere no matter how it would poorly affect their lives. Though this did not negatively impact Britain, it was a huge negative impact of their imperialism as a whole. Millions of Native Americans were killed in the process of establishing an imperial relationship between America and Europe. In one instance, the British settlers purposefully infected an entire large native tribe with small-pox so that they could conquer the land of the natives (Burch).
This advancement in technology increased population and food production, benefitting everyone. The European technologies helped countries in advancing the colonized Asian countries and Africa. The colonized countries got ideas how their countries should be governed in order to be advance and strong country. During imperialism, as Europeans entered the colonized countries many Western cultures and customs were introduced, which helped the countries in becoming more diversited. The countries became more industrialized, helping in increasing the manufacturing of the
