The McKinley administration was known for economic prosperity and the growth and influence of business in American politics. The McKinley era saw the rise of American Imperialism. Imperialism is the desire to acquire influence or ownership of areas outside the United States, for the increase in military, economic, and commercial weath and influence they would bring to the United States. Imperialism is an outgrowth of Manifest Destiny. It is considered by some to be Manifest Destiny outside the boundaries of the nation. Trade made the US an active participant in world affairs. American ships, sailors, and merchant vessels were traveling to the world's most exotic ports. To protect that commerce, imperialism became a policy of the McKinley administration. The belief was that the United States should acquire influence and ownership of areas in the Pacific, South America, Africa and in the Atlantic, so we could protect our Naval and merchant forces and continue to increase trade. The Spanish-American War was an example of imperialism in action. MrV
I am improving the above- Mckinleys may have seemed imperialist but it was genrally more about moral and socail issues than power. McKinley did not aim to control other people, but rather wanted to make other people American. His religious and moral ideas made him believe it was American responsibility to educte and christianize others.
