How Did The Spanish Revolution Change Their Culture

How did the industrial revolution change the world between 1850 and 1900?

The changes brought by the Industrial Revolution overturned not only traditional economies, but also whole societies. Economic changes caused far-reaching social changes, including the movement of people to cities, the availability of a greater variety of material goods, and new ways of doing business. The Industrial Revolution was the first step in modern economic growth and development. Economic development was combined with superior military technology to make the nations of Europe and their cultural offshoots, such as the United States, the most powerful in the world in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Industrial Revolution is called a revolution because it changed society both significantly and rapidly.
Over the course of human history, there has been only one other group of changes as significant as the Industrial Revolution. This is what anthropologists call the Neolithic Revolution, which took place in the later part of the Stone Age. In the Neolithic Revolution, people moved from social systems based on hunting and gathering to much more complex communities that depended on agriculture and the domestication of animals. This led to the rise of permanent settlements and, eventually, urban civilizations. The Industrial Revolution brought a shift from the agricultural societies created during the Neolithic Revolution to modern industrial societies.

How did the industrial revolution produce changes in culture and society?

I don't know what "the three forms of imperialism" are, but here are just a few of the ways in which the industrial revolution produced changes in culture and society.

1. The population urbanized, leaving the rural areas and flocking to the cities.

2. Wealth moved from the hands of the landed aristocracy to the hand of the middle-class engineers, managers and artisans.

3. Families ceased spending the bulk of their waking hours in one another's company and became alienated from one another as they went to work in separate factories.

4. Food production went from being an individual family project to being an industry in its own right

5. Industrial pollution fouled the water & air in the cities in ways previously unimagined

6. The move from rural subsistance living to urban salaried living necessitated the production of enormously increased amounts of currency, which led to a shortage of gold & silver, which led to the decision to have fiat currency (paper money)

...and so it goes

How did the Mexican Revolution permanently change Mexican culture and government?

This could give enough topic for a lengthy study so I’ll just stick to politics and culture.It created a peculiar political entity that claims to follow and uphold the principles of social justice that the armed Revolution defended. The current ruling party, PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) is quite far from those ideals and has quietly let go most of its rhetoric but still claims to uphold them. Before the Mexican Revolution, the political elite had a mixture of liberal and conservative values, and was mostly concerned with economic development, social justice and mass participation in politics was not at all high in their agenda. So the Revolution placed those ideas as the main justification for the political class’ action.Also, according to Article 27, the State administers all land and natural resources, since their sovereignty belongs to the Nation. However, it does not eliminate private property, it just puts it under public administration and makes it subject to expropriation if the common welfare can gain from it.Culturally, it connected the Mexican north with the center of the country. Before the Revolution, the Northern border was a lawless land with very little participation in national politics, however after the Revolution, not only the “Northern Barbarians” became the new ruling class but also northern culture as in music, cuisine and imagery became mainstream.

Did the Spaniards ruin Mexican culture?

Mexican culture today is a mix of native and Spanish cultures. It is what it is. It’s not possible to say Spaniards ruined Mexican culture, unless by Mexican culture you mean the culture of the Mexica (Aztec) people in central Mexico at the time the Spaniards arrived. If so, do some research on the Mexica. They were a warrior people who invaded their neighbors primarily to acquire slaves and sacrificial victims for their bloody gods. They sacrificed tens of thousands. What “culture” they had was largely borrowed from the Toltecs and others. The Spaniards brought and imposed their own God, a much more benevolent one. I count that a huge plus for the Spaniards and for Mexican culture.

Are Mexicans changing the culture in the U.S.?

Changed, changing and will continue to change. From before the beginning and forever. And almost always for the better. But then again, I’m biased.Take a look at this guy, for example. Quintessentially “American”, right?Well… no.Every last one of those guys learned their trade from Mexicans like these:These guys had been doing it for hundreds of years before the first Anglo settler peeked over the midwest, and indeed helped the first of them get settled and survive.That’s the reason the Texan outfits are almost the same. And that an American Rodeo is so similar to a Mexican “Charreada”. And they use the same techniques. And the reason the base beat measures and some of the nasal sounds of cowboy music (both coming from honky tonk) exactly match Ranchera (a music subgenre in Mexico related to Mariachi) and just increase in tempo. Because that’s where they come from. The border doesn’t stop the cultural borrowing back and forth.Everything that tells you “American Southwest/Old West” (which is arguably the most identifiably American cultural output) has its roots at least partially in Mexican culture and continues to be informed by it to this day.The 2001 country song “Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo” references a Mexican Tequila brand that has been around for generations, for example. And of course, it’s not the first quintessentially American song dedicated to the Mexican drink from Jalisco - proving you don’t have to have a ranchera base beat and a twang to pay homage:Tequila - by The Champs (1958)And whether it is The Revenant (2015 film), Birdman, Gravity, Pacific Rim, or Children of Men, Mexican artists use their artistic expertise to make hugely influential contributions to American popular culture, even as Americans such as Robert Rodriguez continue to be enamored with Mexico as a topic and artistic venue and creating Mexican subtopic American films.So yes, the two strong cultures that are Mexico and the United States will always blend, clash, marry, divorce, marry again, coalesce, mix and push forth new and innovative cultural forms.So yes, from before there was a United States of America at all, through its foundation and until today (and tomorrow) Mexican culture has been at some point at least related, changing things, more and more as the world gets smaller. And the other way around too.And it’s a good thing. Cultures that don’t change, die.

How does Latino heritage or Latino culture influence the action in the movie " La Bamba" ( of Ritchie Valdez)?

Is it just me or wasn't the whole movie based on latin culture in 50's America?
