History Discussion

The United States has taken on a larger appearance in the affairs of the world today. The reasons that have been associated with the large presence include the urge to lead the world into democracy. The nation was urged to take the responsibility of maintaining power as well as order to support the ideas of democracy, freedom and free markets. This is because it was a large producer of goods and thus it needed good relations with other countries to trade. There was thus the need of influencing the rest of the world to accommodate it in terms of economic dealings so that it could grow the economy to a higher point. The economic growth of the nation had been rising and thus, to maintain and raise it to higher levels, she had to get into matters of the world. She wanted to maintain her interests of the country in the global context. The country had a strong military and thus maintaining security in countries where it had commercial interests in were easy. Therefore, it had to navigate along the unpredictable periods to ensure that its economic growth would not be affected if at all the countries were to be terrorized.

The interactions between the United States and the world in 1890s to 1990s can be described as imperialism. This is because initially, it was categorized as a great nation. As time passed by, its economy became good performing, with a powerful military team as well as advanced ideologies. This led to the county fighting for power with the rest of the countries such as Russia, which were close in terms of power. This led to the country looking for means to extend its power specifically using its military.  This was witnessed during the World War II and any means that yielded positive yields was acceptable. Thus, if I lived during this period, I would not have been in favor of expanding American power abroad by joining the military teams that greatly contributed to the country being a superpower. Between 1890 and 1920, the United States participated in elimination of races that were said to have poor genetic traits. For instance, mad people would be killed through euthanasia, to avoid the trait passing on to the future generation. This attracted criticism for the rest of the countries and considered the country leadership team as inhuman.
