This kind of colonization is called Neo-colonialism. Neo-colonialism played a vital role in the formation of human rights as human rights violations stem from colonialism. Nigeria is an example of the continuous human right violations that take place in the country despite Human Rights Laws being in place. This country has been a continuous victim of human rights destructions since the colonial times, as the colonists had been immigrants who conquered the rights of the Nigerian people to combine their power within the country. Although Nigeria has now attained liberation, the civil leaders continue to overpower and suspend the human rights of the people to magnify their power.
He then established standard oil in the year of 1870, and controlled almost 90 percent of U.S. refineries, along with their pipelines. As his monopoly began, he gained more and more wealth. He was very determined to be the man to come out on top and beat all of his competition. He also helped in the making of the kerosine lamp. This immediately
The main industrialist who gained his immense amounts of money in the oil refining industry was a man by the name of John Davison Rockefeller. His company, known as United States Standard Oil, or Standard Oil, for short, became possibly the largest and most powerful monopoly in the nation during this time period. Factories, constructors, and railroad creators relied on the service of the company to keep their own businesses running. When it came to his wealth, Rockefeller spent most of it on expanding and developing his already-successful oil refinery. By using the methods of vertical integration, being the purchasing all the businesses required for the company to function, horizontal integration, which combined businesses of the same industry into one corporation, and the buying out of his “competition,” he dominated the petroleum industry, granting him access to 90 percent of the oil in America.
Truman proclaimed, “As a result of these tragic conditions, a militant minority, exploiting human want and misery, was able to create political chaos which, until now, has made economic recovery impossible” (The Truman Doctrine, 1947). The blame for the political unrest an instability in Greece would be placed on the Communist uprising. Truman stated, ““The very existence of the Greek state is today threatened by the terrorist activities of several thousand armed men, led by Communists, who defy the government 's authority at a number of points, particularly along the northern boundaries” (The Truman Doctrine, 1947). With Britain being unable to support either Greece or Turkey, support would be asked from the United States. Truman makes several arguments as to why it’s the responsibility of the United States to provide whatever support is
American imperialism is economically, socially, and politically damaging to countries, as well as costly for America. Furthermore, it infringes upon national sovereignty and the right to self-governance. Historical cases have shown the detrimental repercussions America has repeatedly caused. The few cases of success should not undermine the calamitous effects American neo-imperialism has caused. The United States should cede its colonies and stop intervening in the affairs of other nations.
The colonial planter’s view on the inequality towards British rule on the colonists were hypocritical due to colonial views on foreign control, rights of an Englishmen, and treatment of slaves. The colonial English disliked the increased foreign rule onto the colony. London was increasing control over the colonies militarily, politically, and economically ever since the recent wars in the region. The failure of rallying an army and supplies needed to fight the French resulted in Britain taking away local government. Colonial plantation owners were furious over the new Royal order over them.

Which in return brings the united states economy down, causing rage with the citizen because they are having to pay more taxes to keep the government going.

Reigning from 1199-1216 (Baron 345), he was forever known as a king so unfavorable, he would be antagonized in the fictional story of Robin Hood. King John constantly abused his power, his greediness and cruelty leading to the development of the Magna Carta. As England was deeply in debt from his brother’s time in power, John heavily taxed the people, incurring not only the disapproval and anger of barons and knights (“King John and Magna Carta”), but also the starvation of commoners (Knight 108). His heinous taxing was companion to the robbing of citizen’s possessions (Knight 109). Taxing the populace into starvation, the people became incredibly unhappy, defying his order.
When the Nigerian government does come up with a plan to combat these issues, the plan usually lacks a proper procedure and cannot be maintained in the long run. The degradation of the environment in the Niger Delta, is a direct result of oil companies that have failed to take social responsibility into consideration in their various operations. The numerous environmental consequences of oil exploration have become huge obstacles that face development in the Niger Delta. One of these obstacles are oil spills, which mainly occur
Chaotic confusion and the protests posed to the Johnson office by the black community would eventually cause President Johnson to succumb a big deal of support not only for his government, but precisely for his Great Society programs. The problematic individualistic advance of the Great Society between blacks was that it suggested that blacks indeed had an equal opportunity, the logical for a colorblind War on Poverty was tremendously enervated by the shifting character of the black battle for equal opportunity (Davies, p. 56). The problematic colorblind methodology was that opportunity for blacks was essentially parallel. Intrinsic bias and de-facto separation in urban places led to discouraged and keep urban black ghettos below poverty line. Since there was a very little chance of equal stability for blacks due to these wrongful social establishments, the idea of equal opportunity through individualistic development was discouraging.
