Period 3 Novermber 9 2000 Does Imperialism Really Work Imperialism is a policy by a stronger nation to create an empire by dominating weaker nations economically politically culturally or militarily It doesnt work for the most part It strains relations between countries and generally creates bad feelings Almost every time the United States got involved in a foreign place it caused trouble The main times that strained relations occurred were durring the late eighteen hundreds in Latin America and the far east Hawaii for example was annexed when the government that was in place there was working perfectly fine The Filipino people rebeled against the United States forces when they became a territory of the US Cuba was helped toward independence by the US but they also put an amendment in their constitution that limited their trade and involvement with countries other than the US very greatly I agree with the statement Imperialism usually causes strained relations between the countries involved The United States involvment in Hawaii was definetely an example of imperialism causing strained relations The original reason that the US got involved with Hawaii was for trade They were also leasing Pearl Harbor from them as a naval fueling station The king of Hawaii was forced to sign a revised constitution that essentially gave the US control of Hawaii In 1891 his sister came to power She opposed US control in Hawaii and because of this was removed from power Shortly after this Hawaii was annexed by the United States with little thought to how the natives felt or whether they could govern themselves The Hawaii annexation is a good example of strained relations caused by imperialism
