Over the years many historians have shown ties between progressivism and imperialism Indeed these two are related They both deal with the same topics To what extent though They are similar up until a certain point It all boils down to whether the expansion in imperialism is for the better good or not When the acquisition of land does not necessarily benefit the country that is where the two topics split In the Progressive movement the United States was undergoing a major social reform The government was leaning back towards Americanism the idea of isolationism to protect the ideas morals and values of the citizens Yet the country still pushed forward with the progressive movement The country still expanded extending the movement over many more years Everyone thought that this helped the country for the better Imperialism later came about and changed a few things around The whole idea took certain parts from progressivism and modified them to fit the new direction the United States wanted to take The country thought that by acquiring new territories the country would be better off Helping the economy more citizens and newly taxable lands all were thought to be part of progressivism meaning it was thought to be part of the better good for the country In conclusion the two topics are closely related to a certain point and after that they stray further and further apart The fact remains that they are both based on the same principals that they are in place for the better good of the country Whether the acquisition of land is part of this process or not is not clearly defined
