First, the intended audience for developing countries because much bigger powers are going to eat developing powers up. The message behind the picture is that the world is being carved up by Europe. The two men from the picture are Napoleon Bonaparte on the left and William Pitt on the right. The globe symbolizes the amount of land Europe is claiming. The perspective is from caricaturist James Gillray, as a caricaturist, he would have satirical views on the European governments during the French Revolution.
Some of these were short-term effects, and others were long-term effects. The Columbian exchange is responsible for mass production of silver coins, which caused inflation; trade of corn and potatoes; which changed farming habits of Europeans; destruction of forests and plains in the New World, which caused Native Americans to change their hunting habits; and spread diseases, which caused a decline in Native American population. This is important because all of these effects of the Columbian exchange played a role in developing modern America. The Columbian exchange has helped shape America and without it, the America that stands today may be completely
The arrival of the Europeans with their customs and religion caused the natives to be wildly mystified and made them reconsider their own customs. Soon many native people began to convert to Christianity and this resulted in disunity among the people as they turned against each other. Chinua Achebe powerfully expressed this through his book Things Fall Apart: “Our own men and sons have joined the rank of a stranger. They have joined his religion and they help to uphold his government.” (Achebe, 155) Another way imperialism destroyed cultures began at the Berlin Conference where Europeans met up to divide Africa. In the Scramble for Africa, the Europeans divided the country among themselves without concerning about the relationships between different regions.
This Nomadic lifestyle was very important to the sustainability of nature around them and the grounds they were on. Nature suffered immensely after European extortion simply because they didn’t take care of it like the natives did. Entire ecosystems and species of plants as well as some animals vanished because of how Europeans treated the land. The ravaging of the land would continue for several years after the Europeans would arrive and all in the name of progress. A classic example of this would be the industrial revolution, settling Europeans (the British) would now be called Americans after participating in a revolution.
The story is constructed in a way that shows the similarities and differences of the two stories, while also discussing the place of nature and culture in each. In particular, the writer’s use of metaphor and symbolism works to highlight the way that Europeans and their capitalistic systems have influenced First Nations and their culture. “When a meat eater becomes a sugar eater”: Mike was forced to become a sugar eater, just like the First Nations were forced into dependency on Europeans. First nations used to exist eating natural foods, such as different meats and fish, which they killed themselves. The First Nations were forced into a situation where they became dependent on grocery stores and were moved into a white-washed world where they were unable to live a traditional self-dependent life like they used to.
Indian tribes now found themselves less self sufficient and were pushed into agriculture, weaving, and other fields to generate money to afford the new American dependence. A people who were recently fierce warriors and hunters now led a more sedentary agricultural lifestyle and had lost their free standing position. Indian chiefs found their tribes economically heavily dependent on trade with white Americans unlike their independence, and would be willing to give up their land holdings that they would otherwise not be willing to part with, in exchange for goods or to pay up outstanding debts. The effectiveness of this plan also sparked a resistance among natives, spearheaded by Tecumseh, creating new ideas about unification against the white man and the dependence from them. In summation, Thomas Jefferson’s policies on American Indian relations majorly affected native populations.
Through conversations with people of affluence, such as Theodore Roosevelt, and printed appeals in both local and national newspapers, magazines, and pamphlets, Muir led his charge. In an Atlantic Monthly article, Muir criticized utilitarian environmental policies which suggested that the economic value of Hetch Hetchy to the region justified its destruction. Likewise, in a Sierra Club bulletin from 1908, Muir wrote, “In these ravaging money-mad days monopolizing San Francisco capitalists are now doing their best to destroy the Yosemite Park.” A later section of the piece is laden with religious imagery comparing the sin of capitalistic interest in building the reservoir to the sin which banished mankind from the Garden of Eden. According to Conservationist historian Douglas Strong, Muir’s persuasive techniques made him the nation’s most acclaimed spokesmen for preservation. Robert Righter, the author of The Battle over Hetch Hetchy, suggests that of some the modern methods used to sway public opinion have their origins in the persuasion tactics Muir used during the Hetch Hetchy protest.
The two individuals satirized in the cartoon are Prime Minister William Pitt, speaking to Britain and its domain, and Napoleon Bonaparte, the Emperor of the French. Between them, the two are cutting up a "plum pudding" that represents to the world. The primordial situation in the illustration represents to two adversaries battling for political, economical and social parts of different nations, which is known as imperialism. Imperialism is the domination of the political, economic or cultural aspects of another country or region by a nation. Another example depicted in the political cartoon is eurocentrism.
Hence, the English settlers generated violence that lead to massacres. They wanted to have control over the Maoris people themselves. Likewise, the white settlers thought the Native Americans were less intelligent because they couldn’t build proper houses, and so treated them as the inferior group in the society. Not only that, but both groups were taken advantage of in terms of land and trading. For instance, the Maoris’ officials would let the settlers have a piece of their land, in exchange for goods.
Fitzgerald’s purpose is mainly to portray the reality of his time that impurity and greed of individuals lead to the downfall of society. By depicting the social elite as materialists Fitzgerald introduces the social crisis, the side effects of industrialization and economic development of the 1920s. The social group that is defined as the upper class includes Tom and Daisy Buchanan, Jordan Baker, Jay Gatsby and their associates. The theme of materialism is evident even from the first chapter of the novel, where Nick, the narrator, offers a description of the excessively luxurious Buchanan’s house . Exaggerated projections such as buying “a string of polo ponies” (Fitzgerald: 8) for entertainment characterize the upper class and especially the Buchanans themselves, who represent “Old Money” .
Chapter 12 page 154-155 of To Kill A Mockingbird states “The Governor was eager to scrape a few barnacles off the ship of state; there were sit-down strikes in Birmingham; bread lines in the cities grew longer, people in the country grew poorer.” During the 1930s a large percentage of citizens living in the United States were poor. In order to acquire the food they needed yet couldn’t afford, many Americans usually waited in long bread lines (P36 of ‘Great Depression’ by Britannica School). The book’s inclusion of this quote represents how the Americans were getting poorer, which is an exact depiction of the Great Depression’s toll on everyone’s financial situation. It shows that due to the lack of money, it was hard times for the characters. On the other hand, some may argue that the economic state during the Depression is not accurately represented due to how seemingly fair the characters are living.
