The Boxer Rebellion l HISTORY OF CHINA
 
08:38
The Boxer Rebellion was one of China's biggest uprisings against the unwanted European, US-American and Japanese Imperialism. Distrust and tensions marked all contacts with foreigners. Secret societies were formed to propagate against the enemy. The Yihequan, also known as Boxers, quickly rose to one of the biggest organisations in Northern China. Masters of close combat, they mainly targeted converted Chinese Christians and attacks increased wildly in the 1880s. From 1900 Empress Dowager Cixi was less and less opposed to the Rebellion, as she hoped to fight back foreign influence. Shortly after, even the Chinese Army started helping the rebels and foreigners were fought, killed or driven out. Consequently, an alliance of the imperial powers sent in 50.000 soldiers to end the massacre. Tough reprisals and treaties followed.

Proxy War in Nicaragua - US-Arms Deals with Iran I THE COLD WAR
 
09:01
Nicaragua is a perfect example of a small Latin American country being under crossfire by super powers. During the Cold War Communism seems a viable option for Nicaragua and the so called Sandinistas get to power. The CIA and later US-President Ronald Reagan don't take kindly to Communism in their backyard. So, they supply anti communist militias called the Contras with weapons. The money for those weapons comes from deals with Iran - and Cocaine. Today these dubious proceedings are known as the Iran-Contra-Affair. Learn all about the Proxy war in Nicaragua from Indy in this episode. » ALL VIDEOS on the Cold War: http://bit.ly/ColdWarPlaylist » The Cold War Turns Hot: http://bit.ly/TheKoreanWar » JOIN OUR COMMUNITY FOR MORE HISTORY KNOWLEDGE!

The agreements made late during World War 2 were soon to become obsolete when the USSR and the Allies couldn't agree on the economic future of Germany. After the US further alienated Joseph Stalin with the Truman Doctrine and the Marshall Plan, the decision was made to divide Germany. The Iron Curtain fell over Europe. East and West Germany would remain symbols of the balance of terror and completely opposite ideologies of the bipolar world during the Cold War for the next 40 years. » ALL VIDEOS on the Cold War: http://bit.ly/ColdWarPlaylist » Zero Hour - The Cold War Begins: http://bit.ly/ZeroHourTCW » JOIN OUR COMMUNITY FOR MORE HISTORY KNOWLEDGE!

Not so long after World War 2, the Cold War had its first very hot conflict. After the separation of Korea into a communist north and a pro-western south, the stage was set for war. A war that escalated quickly and brought new innovations to the front that were only in a testing phase a few years earlier. The conflict cooled down into an armistice and created the DMZ that we still know today. » ALL VIDEOS on the Cold War: http://bit.ly/ColdWarPlaylist » Zero Hour - The Cold War Begins: http://bit.ly/ZeroHourTCW » JOIN OUR COMMUNITY FOR MORE HISTORY KNOWLEDGE!

The Opium War - Lost in Compensation l HISTORY OF CHINA
 
08:56
The Opium War started as a dispute over trading rights between China and Great Britain. Regular trade between Europe and the Chinese had been ongoing for centuries. But China's trading restrictions frustrated the British who were eager to supply the Chinese people with the increasingly popular narcotic Opium. Circumventing the government's attempts to ban opium trade by smuggling and bribery, China declared the death sentence on Opium smuggling and refused to compensate British tradesmen for any losses. Furiously, the Brits sent out a fleet to demand compensation and end the Cohong trading monopoly. Fierce battles and attacks on the Chinese coast were followed.

Confucius - Master of Philosophy and Fortune Cookies! l HISTORY OF CHINA
 
07:23
Confucius is probably the best known Chinese philosopher of all times. Although he developed his theories about 2500 years ago, his ancient ideas of morality can still be applied today. He taught his philosophies of confucianism at his "School of Ru". Little is known about his life and biography but his maxims have survived and to this days are practised in the religion of Confucianism. His so-called five constants, made up of humanity, tradition, rectitude, scrupulousness and knowledge should help humanity become content and make the best out of their worldliness.

Downfall of the Superpower China - Ming and Qing Dynasty l HISTORY OF CHINA
 
07:58
With the dynasties of the Ming and the Qing came social security and flourishing international trade. The White Lotus Movement advocated progressive thinking in the time of the conservative Ming dynasty. In 1616 the Qing dynasty came to power. Also known as the Manchu dynasty, the Qing refused to open their borders to limitless trade which led to frustrated European merchants. This caused hostility and mistrust of the "barbaric Chinese". Shortly thereafter China's economy lost its race against European Colonialism and would lose military influence after gunpowder reached Europe.

Fast Food - Would You Like Capitalism With That? I THE COLD WAR
 
08:05
A city that is not plastered with branches of US Fast Food chains is a rare sight nowadays. That wasn't always the case. Fast Food, as we know it today, is a child of the economic boom after World War 2. Taking your new car for a ride to the Drive-In restaurant and getting a fresh burger; that's the American Dream right there. Ultimately the concept of identical taste and identical manufacturing steps is one thing: pure capitalism. Food chains keep wages and costs as low as possible and that is why Fast Food is not nearly as glamorous today as it once was. So put down that Hamburger and find out all about the history of Fast Food with Guy on IT'S HISTORY.
