The Roosevelt Corollary was a good natured if misguided document. When
President Roosevelt intervened in the Dominican republic his intentions were
noble. He was just following the American public's sentiments of the time.
The Roosevelt Corollary this was Theodore Roosevelt's "amendment" to the
Monroe Doctrine. In 1904, the government of the Dominican Republic was
bankrupt, and Roosevelt feared that foreign nations, especially Germany, might
intervene forcibly to collect their debts. To keep other powers out, Roosevelt
showed first 75 words of 472 total
showed last 75 words of 472 total
here, by redefining the Monroe Doctrine, turns out to be very historic and it leads the United States into a period of confrontation with peoples in the Caribbean and Central America. Also into a period of American imperialism in the region.
As you can see the Roosevelt Corollary was done with noble intentions, but it only brought about the antithesis of democracy in Central America. The
domination of a sovereign land by a foreign power.
