Two Paragraphs on Anti-Imperialism

There were Positive and Negative impacts to the expansion of the U.S., because of the Anti-Imperialists. The American anti-imperialism League was established in the U.S. to fight annexation of the Philippines. Their outlook was that Imperialism went against American principles. This positively affected the U.S. because they went against politicians and other imperialist figures that were “going against American principles”. Other Positive things about anti-imperialists were that they were against the Militarism that the Imperialists believed in, such as the annexation of Hawaii. In the matter of negative effects, which would relate to the fact that if imperialism were not around we would not have some of the territory we do now including Cuba and Hawaii. In reality we would not be such a great military power as of today if not for the Imperialistic views involved in the U.S.’s expansion. Never would we have been able to help the Philippines nor any other country for that matter. The main negative effect of this whole situation was the fact there was conflict between us as a country and at the same time trying to provide assistance to other people in hopes of better foreign relations. The main positive effect of the whole situation was that the faults and errors of our country’s political leaders and imperialists were brought to the people to see that this imperialistic view was going against the principles previously set by our Fore-Fathers.

 

 In the case of if the U.S. should intervene in other country’s conflicts is debatable. On one side of things, if we stay out of things our relationships with other countries may not advance. Secondly, the fact that most of our allies are ones that we’ve previously helped gives even more initiative for them to return the favor in political and military situations. Although by us intervening in other countries affairs, we’ve created enemies that may forever hold a grudge on us. This Topic is not a one-sided argument, most people will have two different views on what the U.S. should and should not do. In accordance with being involved with outer country affairs, we deal with the risk of our own safety as well our economic standing. To give to one country means to take from their own Country. In that way brings inner conflict along with that of the country we help. The U.S. Is already in debt form previous counts of intervention. With all this being said the U.S. should make considerations and deep thought as a whole to decide what should be done for the greater good of the country and its people within. In conclusion the U.S. has decisions to make, regardless of what happens on the outside because we as a country still have to move forward.
