There was many factors that shaped the emergence of the Wars of Independence in Latin America and many of these factors caused years of unjust discriminations and abuse that occured from the Spanish Crown. Since the start of Latin America the Crown abused the Natives to their advantage so they could become richer and become more internationally recognised .Three factors that help lead the Latin America people to seek independence from Spain included. 1) Spain was seen to restrict the natives from financial growth, 2)That the different social groups within Latin America were seen to feel pressure from the reforms being put on them by the Spanish Crown. They wanted freedom to decide how to run their home without the crown deciding for them what they should do.3)The Bourbon Reform, was one form of reforms pushed by the people of Latin America towards Independence. “The Bourbon Reforms were a set of political, economic, and administrative changes that came from Spain.”(Sanceri, Lecture 11)Spain used the natives as a way to boost themselve from a very tough economic low and to take them to the riches by using the resources they found in Latin America. “Sugar and bullion (gold and silver) were the “two most important exports of colonial Latin America.” These two goods produced quite a lot of income for the Spanish and Portuguese crowns, so they did everything they could to keep mining and sugar plantations operational, and make sure that the gold, silver, and sugar was shipped safely to Europe (Burkholder p.162)”This is represented the mercantilism “the colonies exist to make the mother country rich.”With resulted in Spain itself was seen as an obstacle to growth. (Sanceri,Lecture 7), this represent how they were abusing their power to help the motherland richer. This affected the domestic side of latin america but the “geography also raised grave obstacles to economic development” (Burkholder 188). Since the goods produced in Latin America were spread far apart from each other and from Europe, the cost of transportation was tremendous. This high cost of transportation “limited the profitability of both domestic and export production” (Burkholder 189). This can be seen as a factor both domestically and internationally.The social class defined the opportunities and treatment one received in colonial society. “But these were also societies where men and women with substantial property were commonly presumed to be white even if their color or appearance might suggest otherwise. In the first decades of settlement, for example, numerous mixed children and grandchildren of conquistadors and Indian women moved in elite circles and married Europeans. Race was therefore defined largely by wealth, lineage, and power or, alternatively, by poverty and tributary status, rather than by biology.” (Burkholder, 192). This quote represent how most people are born into a social class and that is was very hard to change it. The only way that they would be able to change social class was if one was to marry someone else in upper class or to somehow gain wealth.That is why you see in modern-day Latin America; people who do not fit the ideal white European appearance; but are treated as such due to wealth and the role their family has played in society.The death of the last Spanish Hasburg, Charles II provoked the war of the spanish Succession. This caused Philip V to be candidate for the Boubon as he was the grandson of french monarch Louis XI. They decided to increase american tax revenues,how to protect the empire, and how to expand spain’s commercial relationship with the colonies.(pg283) Many felt Bourbon policy was a very unjust attack on their wealth, political power, and social status of america. While massive demographic growth was occurring in Spanish America, the crown was so interested in making sure that the colonies were running a tight ship financially that they shut out a lot of the people who were benefiting most from the system, which was the Criollos.(Sanceri,lecture 11). There were many reason for the bourbon reforms but the main reason was that the spanish would have influence latin america. “Spanish Latin America operated on that old saying that I have brought up a few times, “obedezco pero no cumplo”, which roughly translated means, “I obey but I do not comply.” (Sanceri,11). The spanish crown had to figure out a way to stop this and they did this through using bourbon reforms. The spanish crown had to influence the people even the Peninsular. This caused a lot of problems due to the creoles feeling very left out. The spanish also sent people to the latin America to see what was happening with tax collection. He found out that there was lot of corruption.Domestic and international factors shaped the emergence of the Wars of Independence in Latin America, this was shown through. 1) Spain was seen to restrict the natives from financial growth, 2)That the different social groups within Latin America were seen to feel pressure from the reforms being put on them by the Spanish Crown. They wanted freedom to decide how to run their home without the crown deciding for them what they should do.3)The Bourbon Reform, was one form of reforms pushed by the people of Latin America towards Independence. It represent how these factors led to the emergence of the independence and that each factor caused struggles for Latin Americans and these struggles had to be overcome to gain independence.
