Kennan says that the Russian people are ruled by a tyrant and these ideas are not their views but the viewpoint the Communist Party. In other words, there can be a peaceful coexistence between Communist and a capitalist country if the country such as United States would consider a foreign policy that stressed coexistence, rather than aggression, once circumstances improved. In his essay Kennan suggested that the United States must contain the Soviet Union in order to prevent Socialism from expanding beyond it current borders. Containment Containment is described as the “basic idea of resisting the expansion of Soviet power by exercising the political, diplomatic, economic, moral, and military power of the US and its allies.” It is a post-war concept of George F. Kennan on how the United
The notion that America was exceptional would continue to be re-created again and again on the frontier. The frontier was closely related to the myth that sustained the American faith, the ideals and images that represent the American Dream as well as America as an exceptional nation. The existence of an area of free land, its continuous recession, and the advance of American settlement westward explain American development. In his thesis, the frontier created independence and liberty, breaking the bonds of custom, offering new experiences, calling out new institutions and activities. According to Turner, he felt the frontier is the “line of most rapid Americanization.” Ultimately,
American Imperialism in the Nineteenth Century As a growing nation, the United States felt the need to continue expansion for the benefit of all citizens.

APUSH Unit 6: Making of Modern America Chapter 37 Application ?s and Key Terms 1. In what ways was the Eisenhower era a time of caution and conservatism and in what ways was it actually a time of economic, social and cultural change? The Eisenhower era was considered a time of caution and conservatism. Eisenhower’s dynamic conservatism called for a liberal attitude towards society but pursed conservative economic and political actions. Also, the fear of the Soviet Union and communism brought along extreme anti-communist like Joseph McCarthy whose accusatory actions indicated the perhaps excessive and unnecessary caution taken by the American people.
In his work, Fleming explained that if the Soviets wanted to attack the united states of America they had done it because they had all the necessary equipment but at that period the nation was more interested in its inner politics than conquering the world. Seeing the Soviet Union as its biggest threat and being afraid of the “Domino” effect, the American government decided to take actions by supporting the rebels in Latin America and countries that were gaining their independence in a hope that these societies will adopt the capitalist ideology. The decisions that the USA made where not always elaborated and in some cases they did more harm than good. Isolating the U.S.S.R from the world politics was
Having a series of puppet states in Eastern Europe would give the metropole invaluable security, ensuring that the states which bordered it were friendly and would support it in a theoretical invasion. Stalin must have been mindful of the Quisling governments which enthusiastically aided the Nazis in invading the Soviet Union – the Croats and the Hungarians in particular. Another reason for the Soviet desire to dominate Eastern Europe was an ideological one. Stalin was a committed communist in the vein of Marx and Lenin, and he knew well the key Communist tenet of proletarian internationalism. The workers of the world had to be “liberated” from bourgeois exploitation.
The efforts resulted to the capture of new markets like Cuba, Guan, Rico and Puerto. All these overseas markets helped the US by providing destinations to sell their products. Increased production then resulted to creation of jobs boosting the
This, however, was seen by the Soviet Union as a form of economic expansion through which the Americans were bringing Eastern European states into their own sphere of influence, and was a direct challenge to their authority. It is possible to argue that the Americans were indeed trying to help struggling states with their growth and that the aims were purely altruistic in nature. However, it must be noted that the Marshall Plan did have strings attached, forcing the countries that it provided aid for to open their markets for American goods and not advancing it to countries who did not do
