Manifest Des tiny may have been an attempt to reduce “cognitive dissonance,” which is a psychological condition in which beliefs conflict with experience, leading to “dissonance.”� The healthy response is to question or modify one’s beliefs.� The pathological response takes two forms.� One is to increase the “positive cognitions,” which means to stress information that supports the belief being challenged by experience.� The other is to decrease the “negative cognitions,” which means to ignore, suppress, and forget the experiences that contradict the belief in question.

The percent of the labor force in services rose from 39% in 1971 to 52.4% in 2000, accounting for about 63.9% of GDP in 2004. Sugar and slave trade in Caribbean and South America dominated Dutch interests. At some point he probably read Cardinal Pierre d’Ailly’s early fifteenth-century work, Imago mundi, which argued that the East could be found by sailing west of the Azores for a few days. Taft, had an interest in the Cromwell-Morgan syndicate and used his wife to front for him.� It is highly doubtful that Roosevelt had “clean” hands.� What has been established, however, was that the Cromwell-Morgan syndicate got the lion’s share of the money paid for Panama, and healthy bribes also passed to the Panamanian “revolutionaries.”� It was neocolonialism at its starkest.� Those were the days of Teddy Roosevelt's Big Stick Diplomacy .� The Monroe Doctrine became appended in American politics with the Roosevelt Corollary, which stated that the USA was appointing itself the selfless task of sometimes exercising "international police power" on its Latin American neighbors, for their own good, of course.� The crude neocolonialism of how Panama gained its “independence” eventually gave way to more refined methods.� The USA immediately sent its military to the Canal Zone and occupied it from 1903 to 1914, largely to put down those pesky Panamanians who harbored childish notions of independence.� Panamanians, as with Cubans, Filipinos and other neocolonial vassals, discovered that they merely had new overlords, but Panama got to fly its own flag.� Rob ber barons made out like bandits in their Panama Canal swindle and the American taxpayer was left holding the bag.� Cromwell initiated an era of the USA's manipulation of Central America, as Wall Street called the shots.� Cromwell masterminded America’s Panamanian adventure, although he preferred staying in the background.� Cromwell eventually handed over his empire to his handpicked successor, John Foster Dulles, who capably continued in his footsteps.� Dulles became Dwight Eisenhower’s Secretary of State while his brother Allen ran the CIA, and they jointly engineered the overthrow of the democratic Guatemalan government in 1954 on behalf of United Fruit, which the Dulles brothers had a huge financial stake in.� To put it mildly, the Dulles brothers had a conflict of interest, and the corruption coming into the open over the years has been breathtaking, and the public certainly has only seen the tip of the iceberg.� John Foster’s private records during some of his most active years of running Cromwell’s empire have been destroyed or remain confidential. [244] � After the Dulles brothers helped overthrow the Iranian government in 1953 on behalf of Western oil companies, and Kermit Roosevelt, Jr., Teddy's grandson, led the coup, covert action has been increasingly privatized, so that there is no government paper trail to the conspirators.
