03.01 Isolationism, Intervention, and Imperialism: Assignmen
Transcript of 03.01 Isolationism, Intervention, and Imperialism: Assignmen
The events I chose to discuss are:
Intervention is when a foreign power involves itself with another nation. This is essentially what happened in 1895 between the United States and Venezuela-Great Britain when the U.S. tried to mediate the two. This means that Venezuela and Great Britain had a major disagreement on who's gold was who's. As a result, the Monroe Doctrine was created and stated that Great Britain couldn't touch anything in the Western Hemisphere. It's very fortunate that the United States decided to help solve this problem because it probably would have affected neighboring countries.
Isolationism is a policy of remaining apart from the interests and affairs of other groups- especially the political affairs of other countries. A great example of isolationism is when the United States declined to offer aid to the Hungarian patriots in the year of 1849. At the time, the United States wouldn't even give a second thought about getting involved with any European crisis. It was considered crazy at the time, and I really don't blame them.
The definition of "imperialism" is: "a policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force." This is essentially what the United States did in 1990 with Hawaii. The U.S. decided to annex Hawaii because of they were abundant in the good of sugar and also because they wanted to take over. Although that was the plan, the U.S. and Hawaii couldn't agree. In the end, nothing really happened.
