IMPERIALISM By: Hailey Perez
imperialism is when a stronger wealthier country takes over a weaker not so wealthy country. They change the culture and way of life in that country.
in Australia aboriginals were native to the island. by January 26, 1988 the British vessels invaded and wanted all aboriginals to be exiled away from their own country. The British brought technology and more livestock with them along with war and disease. When the British first came the native aboriginals were friendly and they had culture exchanges. Although when the native people became fed up with the British's selfish acts and not leaving their home they began to attack and hopes to drive them out of their country. "white people" started to take over the land and they did not see it as the aboriginals land. the British were slaughtering the natives and slowing the population of the aboriginals started to dwell. the governor decided that if the colonist were to continue to kill then the colonist them self will be hung and killed. the new live stock drove away their hunting grounds and their home was changed and it became harder for them to live in their homeland for the British's technology was more advanced and defeating the natives. the aboriginals would not give in. after years of this war between natives and the white man, the aboriginals were fit in as a lower class and they sent British's lower class people to Australia as well.
japan turned expansion into a systematic goal. also, they wanted national pride and security. They looked at neighboring countries for raw material, farm material, security, and lumber. these countries were Korea, China, Hokkaido, and Okinawa. japans expansion was fueled by Social Darwinism. this is when a social group is subjected to the laws of nature that imply to the survival of the fittest. they wanted to expand their country because they wanted more security for their country. they were different from western imperialism because they were not racist, and changed other countries politically. this also was away the Japanese could earn respect from the western nations. imperial expansion went hand in hand with growing Japanese nationalism.
