Idea of Imperialism The year 1857 indicate the year in which Indian local would revolt against the British superpower that had exploited their people for over 200 years. The Indian Mutiny and was a major turning point in Indian liberation. Although it was somewhat unsuccessful, it initiated a process that would eventually be cause the East India Company to fall a couple decades later.

Lee 1 Sheung Hon Lee EALC-E100 Professors Morten Oxenboell 4th Dec, 2015 Final Paper: Isolation and Imperialism The Unattached of Qing China in by Western During the 19th and early 20th century, the idea od isolation and imperialism has contributed key role of the East Asian history. Imperialism Imperialism is a political advocate or practice that the main matters of the acquisition of territory by a country and enslave other countries, people in the occupied territories of the country, the establishment of economic and political hegemony, while above the other countries.
Religion played a great role in the establishment of the English colonies. The main reason the English traveled to North America was to escape religious persecution. Once the English settled in they created colonies, and established rules for a religious society. They would also try to convert Natives into Christianity, and they established universities to practice ministry. Once the English settlers got to North America, the House of Burgesses in 1619 said they would try to convert Native children specifically boys into a “ true religion”, then eventually teach them how teach them how to be Christian civil people.
Europeans settlers attempted to impose, religion, language, culture to the Native Americans that owned and live in the region for generation as a result, the settlers found a strong opposition to the involuntary assimilation. This method was not new; every “Conquistador” used the same system in many other nations in The Americas where they went as far as killing many tribes and having natives as slaves, to accomplish their purposes. I don’t believe that it was about having natives to assimilate their culture, language or way of living; the real reason was to subdue the Natives to be able to accomplish their many economic plans like mines, railroad and agriculture, a clear example are the tragedy at Wounded Knee. The Native Americans in most
The removal of the native Americans from their land, and the boarding school movement, which is when many native children were separated from their families, stripped from their language and often got abused by white. They lost their home, family because most American thought that Indian should integrated to their white culture, so it 'll be easier for them. The lost of family play a big impact in Native American life from generation to generation. Native America are still one of the United States most economically disadvantaged population. Not only that, most of their land are owned and managed by the federal government.
Imperialism is so widespread due to individuals believing that they have superiority over opposing religious, economical, and political ideals. All humans across the world seem to have one thing in common despite those ideals: greed. The leaders of this greed created a false belief of superiority among the populations of other ethnic groups in other countries. The leaders summoned soldiers out to do their dirty work, convincing others that certain individuals were the enemies. With the help of propaganda and brainwashing, it is easy to convince a group of individuals that they are better than others and eventually push them into committing murder-
As imperialism occurred, different views were developed by the imperialists power and colonized people. The imperialist power received several benefits from imperialism. Imperialists advanced their own wealth and status, so they believed they were doing good with their ways. Little did they know, they were harming and killing off the colonists. Therefore, the colonized people were faced with a variety of strife and struggles.
One of the biggest problems was undoubtedly the fact that almost everybody did not have respect for property rights. Native American’s never showed hostility until the newcomers threatened their home and life. The United States government promised the Indians that they could live peacefully on their new land. However that did not work out, as land treaties were broken because of precious ore that ruined many a life being discovered on their property.
Imperialism had a big impact on the native people of India in the time of 1750-1900. Imperialism is known as the dominance of other nations and/or countries over other places to spread their religion, culture, etc. The weakening of the Mughal Empire had a huge impact over all of India. As well as the British East India dominating a military so strong to take over part of India. With the decline of the Mughal Empire, India struggled to keep out invaders.
The first time that the British showed economic interest in India was the 1600s. The British set up trading posts in several places including Bombay, Madras, and also Calcutta. In the beginning the Mughal Empire which is India’s ruling Empire had done a pretty good job of keeping the European traders under control until 1707 when the Empire had started collapsing. In the year of 1757, General Robert Clive had led the troops of the East India Company to a victory over the Indian forces who were allied with the French at the Battle of Plassey.
