1. According to Ferry, what recent developments in world trade have made it urgent for France to have colonies? In an argument with members of the French Parliament, Ferry defends the decisions to expand. Other countries began to export more goods than France, so essentially, if they (France) had more colonies, they could export more goods out of the country. Jules made it a point for it to be known that outlets were in great need, and lacking because of Germany’s trade barriers, and also at this point the United States became protectionists.
2. What arguments against imperialism have been raised by Ferry's critics? How does he counter them? Critics say “Oh! You dare to say this in the country which has proclaimed the rights of man!” They include that he is justifying slavery. Ferry responds and says that he is allowed to impose regular commerce upon them. Jules says that his race is the superior race and therefore his race has rights over inferior races. The critics also say he is justifying slavery. Jules responds, “I repeat, that the superior races have a right because they have a duty. They have the duty to civilize the inferior races . . . . In the history of earlier centuries these duties, gentlemen, have often been misunderstood; and certainly when the Spanish soldiers and explorers introduced slavery into Central America, they did not fulfill their duty as men of a higher race . . . . But, in our time, I maintain that European nations acquit themselves with generosity, with grandeur, and with sincerity of this superior civilizing duty.
3. What non-economic arguments does Ferry offer in favor of imperialism?
Ferry offered ideas of civilization in its highest sense and ideas of politics and patriotism. Ferry also took into consideration the current conditions of naval warfare. He suggested that France needed countless provisioningstations and shelters and…...

Jules Ferry's Speech

...Jules Ferry’s speech He sent an army in China and that created a big scandal in France. He was called the Tankinois because the news of the retreat shook his government and forced him to quit. The French won allowing France to conquer the Gulf of Tonkin in China. Jules Ferry was a proponent of colonization. Why? The inferior race be civilized by the superior class (ethnocentrism). It is not racism by nature. It is a strange imperialism He has a genuine feeling that France had a duty to dominate/ lead the rest the world. This is why the France and US are always in competition because they both consider that they need to lead the world. Both France and England had the same idea of civilizing Africans. Kipling, “The White Man’s Burden”. The White man has to go to Africa and civilize it. The French ruled in a much more direct way than the English way. The English were in the colonies for money while the French had a bigger idea of civilization. They tried to create an elite in every colony: Ecole Normale in Africa. The elites would then go to France and be sent back to Africa to civilize the rest of Africa. However, that created an adverse effect since the African elites analyzed the French arguments and used their return to Africa as a way to denounce the French system/ education.

Harpers Ferry Raid

...John Brown’s Speech to the Court John Brown’s short raid of Harper’s Ferry had a large impact on the relations between the North and the South. On October 16, 1859, John Brown randomly raided Harper’s Ferry and attempted to arm and free slaves. Brown’s raid did not last more than 36 hours and ended up being unsuccessful. Unfortunately, in the end, Brown was hanged for his crimes. This caused problems between the North and the South and separated the North and South even more than before. People who lived in the North viewed Brown as a martyr for abolition. While the North saw the nonconformist as a hero, the South was outraged that people saw his destruction as heroism. This proved to the South that the North would use violence if necessary to end slavery and gave the South another excuse to want to secede from the United States. After the Harpers Ferry Raid, sectionalism in the United States became even more prevalent. In the 1950s and 1960s, homophobia was much more common and harsh than it in in modern America. In Greenwich Village in New York City, a series of riots broke out at the Stonewall Inn between members of the LGBT community and police.

Analysis of Jules Ferry's Argument on French Colonial Expansion 1884

...Analysis of Jules Ferry’s argument on French Colonial Expansion 1884 The industrial revolution was not only a time of great advancement for the west but was equally troubling for the European countries, especially that of France. Jules Ferry, a French statesmen recognized a need for expansion and took it upon himself to go in front of French parliament to argue his position of the need for French colonial expansion. The arguments he made in support of his country were of economical, humanitarian, and patriotic views. The first of these arguments was economical in nature. Ferry felt it urgent to expand the French colonies because he recognized a change in foreign economic strategies that would directly affect France. He saw that Germany and the United States had put in place trade barrier that made them increasingly difficult to work with. Some countries especially those in the west were not only growing in population but were making technological advances by leaps and bounds. Amidst the continued success and growth of other foreign nations European markets continued to shrink and flood with new products. South America, according to Ferry was a market that they had used for a very long time and now because of the exponential growth of North American industry, Ferry was greatly concerned that North America was going to take over the South American market. Ferry realized that for his country to continue to flourish that something needed to be done. Ferry also......

Case Study #1 Jules Ferry

...Jules Ferry: On French Colonial Expansion (1884) Regina Farr-Killian DeVry University: HIST405 Professor Thomas Keyser March 6, 2016 Jules Ferry is known for being a politician and twice the Prime Minister of France in the 18th century. Ferry wrote a pro-expansion speech to recite for the French Parliament on March 28, 1884. The main idea for his speech was to justify the policy on colonial expansion by addressing the need for growth in the French commerce. Is Ferry acting in good faith to the French or is it his own greed and the need to be superior, especially with the African countries? Jules Ferry was concerned with economic strategies, because major industries of France were lacking outlets to export their goods such as textiles, Germany and the United States had set up trade barriers, he considered the United States of America perfectionists, he feared that the South American markets would be taken over by North America, and he knew that the markets of France were not only shrinking but being taken over by the “great states”. Ferry also realized that times had changed, warships could not carry more than two week worth of coal and the need for a place to supply, shelter, and as port of defense was needed. Therefore, it was urgent for France to acquire more colonies. The arguments against imperialism have been raised by Ferry’s critics, by Jules Ferry, (1884) stating “indeed the higher races have a right over lower races.” (para.4). He also...

... Case Study: Jules Ferry Melissa Elliott Chamberlain College of Nursing HIST 410 Professor Franklin March 06, 2016 Case Study: Jules Ferry 1. According to Ferry, what recent developments in world trade have made it urgent for France to have colonies? As an imperialist, Jules Ferry felt that France should be exploring and taking over new nations. He claimed colonial expansion was a great need that had become extremely urgent by the people and industrialized population of Europe (Kleinman, 1897). He stated that other countries, United States and Germany, were exporting so much more than France was. Jules Ferry compiled a report of statistics with his perspective of that great need for colonial expansion (Kleinman, 1897). This report asked questions daring the readers to disagree. Asking if it was a “fantasy”, a “concern that could wait for the future” or a “crying need” for the people of France and its industrial population (Kleinman, 1897). In his mind, he was just voicing what others could plainly see themselves just by looking around. In his words “France needs more outlets for exporting (Kleinman, 1897, para. 2)”. He proved this by blaming Germany for France not having enough outlets because they were setting trade barriers up. Then he blamed the United States for supporting Germany because the U.S. had become “protectionists and extreme protectionists at that (Kleinman, 1897, para. 2)”. He claimed that because of the dwindling markets it was becoming more......

According to Ferry, what recent developments in world trade have made it urgent for France to have colonies? According to Ferry, the recent development in the world that made that made France to have colonies was the need outlets or to create market for their goods after post industrialization. Their next door neighbor Germany have some trade barriers in place that will not grant France free hand to trade on the goods they are producing. To this end, the only way to boost their economy was to source for other outlets where these goods will be sold as to keep the economy alive and thus taking over both their political and economic system. This is to say that the colonies created by France was not intentionally to develop or help those economies grow primarily but to use them as an opportunity to grow their own economy and in the long run will lead to exploitation of those nonwestern nations. Even when they move into those economies and build their industries, the deprive the indigenes of the opportunity to manage and rule their lives. They are turned to who live on pay with the hope that something good is brought to them from the west and in turn their expertise and human capital is used to their own detriment. Competition among other industrialized in seizing some markets for their goods like North America created a fear that if France do not act fast, the entire......

...Shockley Contemporary History July 10, 2016 Case Study One According to Ferry, what recent developments in world trade have made it urgent for France to have Colonies? At the time that this speech was given by Ferry, the importance of free trade was emerging and growing. Ferry gave his speech because at this time, more countries were starting to make trade and exports a priority while France was not. He was placing importance on the fact that France was behind in this aspect and thus missing out on the benefits of trade and exports. If France were to develop more colonies at this time, they would be able to take part and thus send more goods out of their country. Ferry made it clear from this speech that he thinks very highly of his people and thus of his country meaning that he wanted the very best for it. “…Europe and particularly those of our own rich and hardworking Country: the need for export markets” (Ferry, 1884). He felt as though he was in competition with other countries (specifically Germany and the United States) because of their involvement with trade and France’s failure to do so thus far. They were getting to expand their horizons and gather items that weren’t regularly available to them in their own countries. Having the ability to trade not just among neighboring countries, but to countries across the world opened up many doors for the countries involved and ultimately, Ferry felt that they were missing out. What arguments against imperialism have......
