WORLD WAR ONE: -through technological development and increasing economic = primacy globally, Washington’s inflamed ideal of european isolationism shed as europe's “great war” grew, leading Wilson, morally convicted despite initially championing of retaining from and passivity, to go to war due to infringement of US srwinit, the “protection of democracy”, which ultimately, solidified the US role as a international power. -Wilson initially wants the continuation and maintenance of neutrality due to unpreparedness, lack of public morale or reasons, and as the action would threaten the progression of the “new freedom” agenda. Causes of WW1: The stem of the conflict was continuation of ethnic tensions within the austro-hungary empire, a collection of heterogeneous cultures that strived to prevent the expansion of serbia, who wanted the two states to combine to create yugoslavia, encomapssing all serbians within europe, and the rise of materialistic germany, and power struggles from france and russia against the naval power of britain. Specific gradation: As gavrilo princip, a serbian nationalists in austria-hungary kills the heir to the austro hungary throne archduke franz ferdinand, european conflict imploded. Here, autsrohngray, allegenced with germany =, demanded serbia complete a specific set of reparations, and despite fulfilling this task, declare war on serbia. In reaction, serbian ally russia delcrae swrar on autroshungrey, eventually leading to a mass change of alliances forming the triple alliances or central powers of germany, austrohungrey, and italy, against = the allied powers of france, britain, and russia. - As the german government saw war as a good avenue to pursue their militaristic expansionist agenda, and seeking the conflict as a quick, easy war, the germans invaded neutral belgium, propelling great britain to defeat belgium on the western front. -US viewed the advent of conflict as centrally rooted, and therefore there was not viable reason to go to war publically, yet president Wilson would work to provide financial assistance and supplies to various powers such as france, great britain, and germany, and due to american electiness of populous through immigration, naturally could be maintained due to no prevailing side. Lusitania-Arabic Pledge-Sussex Pledge: As britain upholds blockade around german warships, germany announces that it would employ ubotas, sumerines, that would sink all enemy ships within the area, infringing on the internationally principle of avoiding destruction against passenger ships. To this, wilson argues the strength of the war crime, and threatens germany if US property is victimized. Thus, as british luxury unarmed ship the louisiana is sunk with 128 americans on board, igniting sentiments of war within the public, and especially, teddy roosevelt. Despite the fact that wilson attempts to remain neutral, bryant eagers the germany had to end u boat practice and apologize, yet germany refuses, and as wilson begins to become aligned with the allied powers, bryant resigns. Later, germany attacks the arabic, again reiterating the threat of germany to american interest, and again, through sinking the sussex, resulting in the sussex pledge in which officially ended the practice of sinking passenger ships. Even withstanding this doctrine, the US figmented the enemy as germany, and understood it must engage in war. -germany continues to infringe upon the sussex pledge, and wilson becomes more towards war depict winning election on the assumption of neutrality, leading it to end diplomatic relations with germany The Zimmerman Telegram: After the US declares to end diplomatic relations with germany, the US intercepts a german telegraph that explored mexico to invade the united state i exchange for lossed territory within the mexican american war and “manifest destiny”. To this, the US sees germany as directly violating Us interests of sovereignty and the monroe doctrine, solidifying resentment of germany. America Enters War- “”the world must be made safe for democracy” As germany continues to sink US ships in accompaniment with other harms, wilson calls for congress to declare war on germany, and in order to garner public appeal, wilson delivers “the world must be made safe for democracy” that idealized that an all encompassing war effort was a necessary expense to triumph the democratic agenda, and to “end” all wars. Despite the fact that it would incepterpt progressivism within the united states, it revealed the decision as a necessary evil. Mobilization for War: At the beginning of the declaration of war, the Us military was small, inexperienced, and lacked necessary equipment, giving wilson the mission to prepare through recruitment, such as the selective service act, and training an army to combat the german . As a result of this, the country limited rights and increase the scope of the federal government through drafting , assumption of private and public interest and economic mobilization, resulting tin the establishment of the selective service act , war industries board, having the authority regulation production and consumption of material goods, and through the appointment of herbert hoover in the food administration, having pioneered as “food wins wars”, encouraging public food ratio, raising federal taxes, ad insustuting war bonds or liberty bonds, investments in the war. These various effects eventually amounted to 20 billion dollars, ⅔ of expense of war. - The implementation of mass draffees through the selective service act withdrew massive amounts of industrial workers from employment, generating new job opportunities that signed the “working women” and great migration of african american s to assume northern jobs. A Loss of Civil Liberties: The war efforts resulted in continuous oppression and prejudice of any german influence, leading to the establishment of espionage and sedition acts in which penizield helping the enemy, disloyalty, or refusal of armed service as twenty year imprisonment and the later sedition act, that stated that refusing to sell war bonds, or any verbal disloyalty against the government would end in imprisonment. After the war ended, the US upheld the ruling of the spinach and sedition acts even with unconstitutionality after war in Schenck vs United States, when the conviction for socialists leader that opposed war was reinforced, as he was a “clear and present danger” to the country. Fourteen Points: In order to “end all wars”, wilson colonial house to organize a coalition of 15p0 experts to draft a peace plan, or fourteen points that would outline the triumphs of the rights of mankind :through internationally, in which compared for diplomacy rather than secret treaties, recognition of the rights of neutrality, rights to continue maritime affairs in time of war, or “freedom of the seas”, removal of international trade barriers, reduction of armament , and the transformation of colonial empires , and through the remains of the treaty, to have europe secure stable barriers of countries albeit ethnic or national claims, and lastly, the institution of a league of nations, and even though asked, did not add a clause regarding racial distribution -despite various items, the rejection of the league of nations, as it would sacrifice patriotism and nationalism in the name of internationalism”, or decentralize the Us mission, undermining US morale and reigate german militarism, wilson believes that an international moral would mitigate aggressors of a newfound, idealistic status quo. -after months of deliberation despite contentious illness, Wilson champion's the strength and power of treaty, the american government and public disregard the league of nations, and thus, do not sign the treaty The Treaty of Versailles: Within paris, Wilson achieve loss approval of france and britain due to the perspective of the inability of the Us senate to sign any treaty of wned war, and as this holds, would concede many issues in order to garner support of league of nations including assumption of germany territoriality and the ability of all nations to create states. Yte, would stil institute independent nations of states of austro-hungary, pland, yugoslavia, and czechoslovakia, finland, estonia, lavinia, and lavina. rather than establish german colonies as independent states, the treaty allowed ownership to be transferred to france and great britain, expressing value of imperialism and exploitation. -against the aspiration of the united states, france and england wanted germany to pay for the entirety of war expenses, and yet initially opposed, allowed the “war of guilt” to pass. In which would inveigh germans, engendering stima to be associated with engenderment of WW2. Deliberation of US ratification of treaty: As wilson returned to the US in order to ratify the treaty, the senate decides that the league of nation threatened american independence, as notably henry cabot lodge deemed it too overbearing and a threat on america sovereignty, and accordingly, attempted too shall decision in order to strengthen public disapproval, dividing the house into republican progressive isolations that feared the league would threaten domestic reform, and reservationists ,who would approve the treaty of the league of nations wa slimied, getting a large debate on the issue of the league of nations. -after months of deliberation despite contentious illness, Wilson champion's the strength and power of treaty, the american government and public disregard the league of nations, and thus, do not sign the treaty, leading to the implementation of a non robust, interim, insufficient treaty to end ww1, creating legislative gaps that alleviate the proposed subjugation of germany, allowing them to reconstitute, leading to WW2.
