Diplomatic History of the US Since 1914
Global communication, trade, and capital flow all grew rapidly. The United States rose to be the most powerful military supremacy nation in the world due to Reagan’s’s and Bushs destruction οf the Cold War, bridging the 80s into the new 90s. George Bushs CIA and ambassadorial experience provided Americas key to our foreign policy negotiations, aiding in our nations leadership over the world. This defeat and new era caused our domestic and social society within America into a state οf confusion and caused Americans to question what role they would play in this new society.How can we believe now after September 11, that we still or always have had leadership or supremacy in this world? How could the heart οf our country be damaged so much affecting our nation as a whole? This recent tragedy damaged the core οf our patriotism changing foreign and domestic policy after the 90s. During the 90s, a time οf new cultural expression and power, the US was willing to use any economic, political, or military force necessary to uphold the new global system. After the Reagan legacy, President Bill Clinton created the "New Democrats," which, sought to replace the party’s older industrial and agricultural bases with a new, if unwieldy, coalition οf women, minorities, social liberals, and technological progressives. “The increasing movement οf women into the public world in industrialized societies at the turn οf the century and the inclusion οf members and national sections from dependent and formerly colonial countries in the 1920s and 1930s complicated the process οf constructing a collective identity,” (Merrill 105)Throughout American history, the issue οf freedom has always prevailed and equality οf everyone wasn’t brought up until the early to mid-1900s. The people’s dependence and underlying trust within the government to withhold and protect have put our society on a roller coaster οf trust, distrust, and betrayal.
