More importantly, they had a "western foreign policy", which already existed in their own countries. People in Europe, as well as the Englishmen who came to North America, had the ideas of feudalism and colonialism, the policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically (Oxford Dictionary, online). Neither of the two ideas existed in the Native Americans ' ideologies. The Native Americans carried out a communal system. The process of colonization for the United States of America was very notable in what the Englishmen had as their ideologies of expansion, how those ideologies fit into colonialism, and how the thirteen Colonies were set up until the American Revolution.
Approximately in the year 1585, Richard Hakluyt had concocted a list of reasons in hopes of persuading the English to sail across the ocean and colonize what would be North America. He claimed that colonizing would enlarge “the dominions of the Queenes most excellent Majestie, and consequently of her honour, revenues, and of her power by this enterprise” and stretched as far of “planting of religion among those infidels” in hopes of spreading the Christian influence to what would be the Native Americans. Although the written intent was clear — God, Gold, and Glory — there were still ambiguous notions established in the document. Hakluyt was essentially uncertain about the hostile natives and how the colonization would affect the living situations of both natives and colonists. “To plant Christian religion.
However, over the course of the colonial and industrial eras, there were many changes in the role of genders. At the start of the colonial era, Puritans were the first of many Europeans to settle on American ground. They came to America with a mission of having “ a city on a hill.” As a result, the Puritans wanted to become a model society for everyone to mimic after. Puritans migrated to America in hopes to live in a purified society. This was due to the corruption of Christianity and Catholicism in Europe.
Fontaneda’s concern in his memoir is evident and reflects the Spanish ’ insatiable lust for gold. The Spanish eventually did find gold, however, were unsatisfied with the wealth it brought so they took many slaves and other relics of the New World to be sold in Spain. Fontaneda wrote of the Indians, “They go naked, except some in deer skins made into breech-cloths, with which the only conceal their shame.” The Conquistadores didn’t look to the Natives as equals but as objects in which to gain a profit. They completely disrespected the land
To what extent did Thomas Paine’s Common Sense promote the movement for independence in the USA from 1776 to 1783? The pamphlet, Common Sense influenced and encouraged Americans to fight for independence from Britain. Paine wrote in simple English so the masses could understand. The pamphlet served as a big push towards independence because it gave reasons why America should split from British rule, such as taxes, the unfair monarchy and that independence is inevitable but when is the question. He provided alternative solutions to governing, a republican government and a constitution.
After explorers discovered the continent of North America in 1492, many European countries sought to build colonies on this landmass in order to acquire more resources. Many groups also saw this continent as a place to escape oppression and was a chance to produce a new society rather than just reform the old society. Many attempted to form utopian societies in the New World, settlements that planned to create a perfect society free from corruption and strife and promoted peace and freedom. Many of the British colonies in North America were created by people who saw the New World as an opportunity to form ideal settlements that would embody the principles of justice and harmony. Unfortunately, many of these ideas could not survive long as a
Because the Magna Carta is a precursor to the Declaration of Independence and is backed up by irrefutable evidence, the conclusion can be drawn that the Declaration of Independence was influenced by the Magna Carta. The Magna Carta, in many ways, facilitated and shaped of the Declaration of Independence as well as being very similar. The Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence were both the result of wars; in America the colonists rebelled against the British, and King John’s nobles rebelled against him in England. Both of these documents exercised the idea that there should be limitations on the power of the government and the people should dissolve an insufficient government if it oversteps those limitations. Both documents also explicitly state “all men are created equal” and should be treated equally for that reason.
The American Enlightenment brought much impact on colonial society in America on political ideas of colonists to receive independence from Great Britain. John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau had beliefs that individuals deserve freedom and human rights to life, liberty, and property. People deserve to have their own opinion, natural rights, and decisions. “The Enlightenment was a progress with the people in the Western world thought about themselves and the societies in which they lived.” (Schultz, p. 69, 2009) The Enlightenment brought support within religions and education. Ministers from New England established an educational system and Enlightenment goals in human logic.
Before conflict started to erupt between the British and the American colonists, there was the end of the French-Indian War in 1763. The British government was given enormous territorial gains from the war and many of the colonists were eager to move westward onto new, fresh land, especially considering that the colonists had claimed that land in the war. However, to improve Native American relations, the British issued The Royal Proclamation of 1763, which declared the boundaries of the thirteen colonies to be the Appalachian Mountains. The British government saw the proclamation not as oppressive, but as a fair way to prevent more Native American-colonial conflict and in no way expected colonial resentment. Yet, countless American colonists were enraged by this proclamation.
We befriended the Cherokee and a couple other dangerous tribes though in defence of their tactics. In the American war many of the Natives sided with the British to try and defeat the colonists and regain their lands. In this time western Pennsylvania and New York became savage battlegrounds. After the defeat of the British the newly set boundaries for America ensured that their would be more and more
Aboriginal People and Historical Globalizations Aboriginal People lived in North America. They were the first people to step into North America, but when the European countries tried to find a way to get to Asia by sending explorers, one of them was Christopher Columbus who sailed to find the routes to Asia. When he reached North America, he found the new land where he met the Aboriginals. This was the time of historical globalization.The English people took them and put them in residential school because “it was best for the future of aboriginal people”. They assimilated the aboriginals, made them isolated, and they dominated them because they were more imperial.
It’s the 16th century, the nasty King of England ordered a group of settlers to explore the new found world. After a treacherous travel along the pacific, the settlers found present day America, and called a colony “Jamestown” in 1607, making it the first permanent English colony. This started a series of adventure to make America an independent country from England. Creating America was like trying to create a beautiful masterpiece by an artist; it was destined to have mistakes that needed to be fixed and tweaked. The foundational events in the development of America were a settlement, revolution, and government.
Thomas Paine Revolutionary War Project Brandon Myers Mountain View 11-20-15 Thomas Paine was an early English American writer and pamphleteer whose writings such as common sense helped the people of the colony to realize that separation from Britain was a good idea.

This government was created just after the colonists had won a long war against the British for their independence. This played a big role in how the Americans chose to make their government. They were afraid that if they gave all the power to the national government, as the British did they might create another government that had
