Improvement of human rights colonialism deprived human of even the basic such as free s though the freedom did not guarantee the exception of all forms of oppression in India for example. The Indian national congress helped in reading of racial insults, get free speech, forceful labour in sugar and cotton plantations .another example is in Kenya where the MauMau achieved a lot with its Guerrilla warfare tactics .The British started letting loose on issues such as public caning in the political arena. Racial segregation was a major problem that the colonized racial profiling. African national murder.
Freedom movements were taken as rogue establishments with the aim of corrupting the masses and thus there was no legal recognisation of their efforts. In Kenya or example /before 1984/there was no African participation in the legislative council but the agitation of KANU led to the three races being represented.
Nothing was closer to the hearts of the oppressed than the freedom to own property, their farms, Animals, wives; all had been taken away. They were instead required to work on their former farms as laborers. One of the main ideas of freedom movements was to return farms and properties to their real owners. This was achieved, for example, In Zimbabwe where whites were chased away and the farms given to squatters.
CAUSES AND THE MOST ENDURING LEGACY OF THE COLD WAR.
There are many courses that are related to cold war and some of them include; American fear of the communist attack, When USSRs expanded west into the eastern Europe and the unfulfilled election promises, The tension brought by the Americans to the USSR in fear of being attacked/Also when Americans refused to share their nuclear secrets and the last is The USSRs dislike of Capitalism. Immediately after the end of World War II Americans believed in freedom and capitalism while the soviets believed in communism. These two ideologies fought in favour of gaining power to which one between the two was superior and this was a major cause of the cold war. To Americans/communism was viewed as a core threat to their freedom of doing things the way they wanted. This fear grew so much and even became paranoia. What worsened this situation is when the soviets union successfully tested an atomic bomb which made china to join the soviets. The fact that the Russians 7 bombs couldn’t be assembled immediately to make a difference resulted to the contribution of cold war. Also when they compared their uranium and plutonium/it was clear that they couldn’t conduct theatre operations for two or three times consecutively and this could be done by Americans. In their day today life they lived in fear of being attacked by the Americans.
The enduring legacies of the cold war include pacification of politics in Europe. Also the cold war influenced the formation of simulation of a massive military /industrial and security complex and greatly influenced a stake in promoting armed rivalry with other nations.
AMERICA’S RISE TO GLOBALISM IN THE POST WORLD WAR II ERA
During World War II, The Americans came to know they could get rid of the advantages and disadvantages that came with wielding power. For example some Autocrats in Asia and Europe threatened United States of America’s security in a quick resurgent of the problems that were caused by lack of power.
The Americans were forced to face the bad results of force and violence in matters of global affairs.
When the war ended, some Americans tried to grab back a second chance to globalize their power problem. Just after the World War II, Americans started practicing economic power and strengthening the military force in an unprecedented measure.
They dug deep to find the cause and solutions pertaining the problems caused as a result of power. They started reconciling to the use of force and rather engaged in diplomacy which ushered them into a new dawn of interventionism. This interventionism is what resulted to the creation of a big military establishment in America. Its great interventionism and military establishment that have made America to rise into globalism.
Although the UN was established as a peacekeeping body, it proved incapable assuming responsibility for controlling of atomic technologies and weapons therefore the Americans through the Truman doctrine of 1947 committed American power and force in every form and theoretically in every forum. This globalist approach led to the emergence of alliances such as North Atlantic Treaty organization (NATO) and impressive economic plans like the Marshall plan. As the most productive economy and largest source of supply and demand for resources, the United States had both the power to persuade the majority of nations, compel most of the remainder and isolate the few dissenters.
