The United States expanded its size, achieving their dream of Manifest Destiny. Although the United States war against Mexico resulted in the gaining of America’s most valuable land, the war itself wasn’t legitimate because of the revolution in Texas, motivation for superiority, and the U.S. government’s actions. To begin, the Texans began an unreasonable war because they didn’t follow Mexico’s laws and conditions. When Mexico started selling cheap land, they set conditions for the people moving in. The people had to convert to Catholicism, learn Spanish, become a Mexican citizen, and have no slaves.
As a result of the Spanish American war, the United States gained control of the Philippines. The US felt that the Philippines were too uncivilized to govern themselves so the US decided to keep them under their control. Although the filipinos were unhappy that they were being given to another country for imperialist rule Before America took over the Philippines there were 87 different languages. Some of the languages that they spoke were Tagalog, Pampungo, ETC. There were 7.5 million people in the Philippines before the imperialism.
Without going in details, a conservative rough estimate is that Earth carries with it about 3 global oceans of water – 1 global ocean on top what we see on surface; and 2 global oceans down below where it sits silently with the minerals. 3 global oceans may sound like a lot, but it is not – especially when compared to the total mass of the earth. By volume, it makes up only less than 1/10th of 1% of the earth’s mass. One way to visualize: Visualize earth as a solid ball of 8,000 miles in diameter with only a film of water layer, 10 miles deep max at the surface. Another way to visualize: Visualize earth as a 160 pounds body (a typical human body weight), it has only (160x0.001) 0.16 pounds of water which is 2½ ounce or a mouthful of water at the most.
Before the arrival of the Spaniards in the Philippines, our ancestors had been trading with other countries such as China, Japan, India, Cambodia, Borneo and Moluccas. Products from these countries flowed into the Philippines easily. Manila became the center of commerce in the East. The King of Spain issued a decree banning the importation of goods from China as they could be bought in the local market for competitively low prices. This, in turn, made it possible for European goods to be sold in the market for outrageously high prices.
However, finding the Spice Island was not so easy so the Dutch needed help from the locals. When the Portuguese went away from Indonesia, the Dutch had a chance to monopolize the commodities like spices. Kings and princes used to rule their own territories and commodities before the Dutch came. In 1602, the Dutch founded VOC (Vereenidge Oost- Indische Compagnie) or Dutch East India Company that the purpose was to gain as much money as possible. According to Epic World History, the VOC was permitted by the Dutch government to have diplomatic relations and to have foreign powers so they are allowed to have military actions and have their own weapons.
As a cabeza de barangay or barangay captain, Dagohoy opposed the Spanish colonizers which were represented by priests and civil leaders, imposing payment of excessive taxes, tributes. The Manila Galleon trade made contact between the Philippines and Mexico as well as the whole of the Americas. Spaniards and Natives from the Spanish colonies settled in the Philippines and introduced their cultures which then was embraced by the Filipinos. The Philippines received heavy influence from Spain and its colonies (Today Mexico, Peru, etc. ), and the archipelago became "hispanicized".
But the indios did not think that way. For them, the important part to note in Philippine history were its precolonial, colonial and post-colonial periods. So instead of having only two periods another epoch was added. This view is now called the tripartite view where the situation of the Philippines are compared during those times. It did not just want to contradict that there were only two notable parts of the Philippines but it in some ways wanted to instill that we already have something of our own even before the Spanish.
