3.01 Isolationism. Intervention, and Imperialism.
Transcript of 3.01 Isolationism. Intervention, and Imperialism.
Isolationism is when a state/country tries to not get involved in political affairs. I believe when the US declined to give aid to Hungarian patriots in 1849 it was a form of Isolation. The revolution in the hungarian kingdom grew into a war for independence from the Austrian Empire who was being ruled by the Habsburg Monarchy at the time.
Intervention is the involvement of foreign powers in another nation. The open door policy that the US proposed in 1899 was an example of intervention.The policy stated that all European nations, and the US could trade with China.
The European nations were seizing parts of China by annexation. So the US feared that they would be excluded from all trade with China and begun the process of the open door policy. Allowing them to partake in the trading with the European nations and China.
Imperialism is the policy of creating colonies in weaker nations to make and obtain raw materials and have access to new markets. The annexation of Hawaii in 1900 was an example of imperialism. Hawaii was a main producer of sugar so everyone wanted to get it.
The US decided to annex Hawaii. However, they couldn't come to an agreement so they ended up deciding that their wouldn't be tariffs on the sugar. As a result of Hawaii's depression during this time. The US and Hawaii had a battle. Hawaii had then became a part of the US.
The US was already caught up in the Civil War during this, so it was already a very tense time. The US limited it's involvement in any affair of other countires. So with Hungary, they limited their part by only freeing the leaders of Hungary. The US decided to not intervene with distant countries affairs.
