Imperialism in Brazil
Benefits for Europe
1. Some benefits for Portuguese are : More territory (political) and benefited from Brazil's trade; agricultural exports (economic).

Benefits for Brazil
1. Some benefits for Brazil are : gained independence without a civil war (political) and trade (economic).
1. Some factors that gave Europe the upper hand when imperializing Brazil are: transportation, disunity of Brazil, and technology.
2. Brazil would be different if those factors didn't exist; 2/3rd of Brazil's population wouldn't be Roman Catholics, Brazil's government today would have been different, and their agriculture wouldn't be so great as it is today.
3. Brazil could have avoided imperialism if they were unified and/or they could have built a strong army and fight back (they were so many tribes and no government, language, etc.).

European Advantage
1. The religion Portuguese, the imperialists, brought were Catholicism; specifically Roman Catholicism. When Portuguese imported slaves from Africa, the slaves brought African paganism; Candomble and Umbanda were the major ones.
2. Before imperialism, Brazilians practiced many, unknown unique beliefs, traditions, and rituals. They were numerous tribes. One cannibalistic belief they had was to capture their enemies and eat their strongest warriors to absorb their strength.
3. The Portuguese spread their religious message by building churches and bringing religious leaders/missionaries to teach the native people.
4. If Brazil wasn't imperialized, the religious climate would be completely different; 2/3 rd of the population wouldn't be Roman Catholics, many festivals in Brazil wouldn't be based on religion, and buildings/attractions wouldn't be created like the Christ the Redeemer Statue.
2. Portuguese's empire started out small but abruptly expands when they get Brazil in 1822.
2. This picture shows that Brazil's trade was a success. The Portuguese contributed to making it a success and they benefited it from it too. They gained more from Brazil than Spain and its colonies.
3, Yes, imperialism was justifiable for Portuguese. The Portuguese didn't harm anyone in Brazil because there was little to no violence. They also taught and traded with the people.
2. "On 7th September 1822, Prince Pedro, son of Portugal’s king, stood near Brazil’s Ipiranga River and made an announcement of independence. He tore the Portuguese symbol from his uniform and declared, 'By my blood, by my honor, and by God: I will make Brazil free.' After that Pedro became the Emperor of Brazil and forced Portuguese forces to leave Brazil." Explanation: There was little to no violence when Brazil gained independence.
2. Brazil's trade was a success because of Brazil's great agriculture,
3. Imperialism was justifiable for Brazil. They have great agriculture and gained independence without a civil war. These benefits are still enjoyed today; their great agriculture is why they are one of the most important distributing countries in the world AND they celebrate their independence knowing that their ancestors didn't have to fight for it since it was literally 'handed' to them.
Pros & Cons of Imperialism

Cons : lose independence, societies are split, new unfamiliar borders, violence, forced slavery, traditional cultures was wiped away.
Impact on World Religions
Pros & Cons of Imperialism
No, it is too dangerous to put my country at risk. There are many negative possibilities a country of Europe can do. If the people do come and take over my country, they will bring religious ideas and beliefs which will replace the traditional cultures. When they bring new ideas it will start disagreements. And when disagreements get out of hand, it will lead to violence. When disagreements & violence happen, societies will be split and the country will be disunified. In conclusion, my country will lose all control because the European country will take power over everything and that is why I wouldn't let my country be imperialized.
