3.01 Isolationism, Intervention, and imperialism
Isolationism is when a state or country attempts not to get involved in political affairs. In 1849 the United States had declined to give aid to the Hungarian Patriots , this was a form of isolationism. While the Austrian Empire was being ruled by the Habsburg Monarchy, the revolution in the Hungarian kingdom had grown into a war for independence.
The Us already being caught up in the Civil War, limited it's involvement in any affair in other countries. To limit their part in Hungary, on the Hungarian leaders were freed. The United States had made a firm decision to not intervene with foreign affairs.
Intervention is the involvement of foreign powers in another nation. In 1899 the open door policy that the US proposed 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 naturally everyone wanted it.
The US decided to annex Hawaii. However, they couldn't come to an agreement so they decided that there wouldn't be tariffs on the sugar. As a result of Hawaii's depression, the US and Hawaii had a battle. Hawaii had then became a part of the US.
