Transcript of 03.01 Isolationism, Intervention, and Imperialism

03.01 Isolationism, Intervention, and Imperialism
Isolationism is a policy that tries to refrain from any involvement with global affairs. Isolationism could be like the United States declining to give aid to Hungarian patriots in 1849. The United States wanted to use the Isolationism plan stopped working with other countries. The United States didn't help any of the Hungarians during their fight for independence. However the U.S. did ignore the Isolationism when they helped the leaders of Hungary free of prison but other than that they only helped once.
The United States did not help the Hungarian Patriots because they wanted to concentrate on expanding the country in the west and also wanted to focus on Manifest Destiny. Manifest Destiny is having the United States stretch from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. The fact that the United States involved in many other tensions and relations with other countries they thought it was best to stop and focus on the country they are setting an example for.

Intervention is the involvement of foreign powers in another nation which results in stronger powers. Intervention is like the United States attempting to mediate in the Venezuela-Great Britain dispute in 1895. This event was caused by Venezuela and Britain having a disagreement on whose gold it was. James Monroe created the Monroe Doctrine which stated that Great Britain could not touch the Western Hemisphere.
The United States decided to solve the Venezuela and Great Britain problem because in the long run it could affect neighborhood countries. James Monroe created the Monroe Doctrine which stated that the Western Hemisphere was off limits to further European intervention. However it does allow America to intervene just not the European countries. They were very strict on this Doctrine and wanted everyone to follow this document but to think that this all happened because of a 509 ounce gold nugget. I definitely supports President Monroe’s Doctrine because it is very smart and could control any possible and future wars.

Imperialism is the policy of establishing colonies in weaker and less financially stable countries in which they would use them to produce raw materials and have new markets. An example of imperialism is the United States annexing Hawaii in 1900. The United States decided to take over Hawaii because they were the main producer in sugar but also they wanted economy and overtake the government. They also decided that they would want to the sugar to be tariff free. However that was not enough and the U.S. wanted Hawaii now.
The United States decided to annex Hawaii but Hawaii and America couldn't come to terms so then they ended up on deciding that they would have no tariffs on sugar. However congress decided to pass an act that left Hawaii and America with no agreement. Then Hawaii Sugar growers had to compete with all the other growers from the U.S. and Cuba however they failed and Hawaii began to have a depression. So then Hawaii's government and the United States battled it out and Hawaii became part of the United States. Which resulted in no tariffs between the two.
