 The U.S.-Mexican War . Prelude to War . Expansionism and Imperialism | PBS
Journalist John L. O'Sullivan attributed this remarkable expansion to "Manifest Destiny," a label scholars still use to describe the decade.

 RatcliffeBlog—Mitch's Open Notebook: The "American DNA" and expansionism
Our expansionism has been a series of punctuated equilibria since we ran out of "frontier." It is a good read.
Liberalism fueled the prodigious territorial and commercial expansion in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries that made the United States, first, the dominant power in North America and, then, a world power.

 ICG Spaces - community weblog - Ackoff on Reductionism and Expansionism, Part II
Using his theme of 'take it apart' or 'God as root cause,' Ackoff defines Reductionism as the process of taking a system apart, analyzing the parts, and trying to understand cause and effect among the parts.
Reductionism tells us how a system is assembled and something about how it works, but it is Expansionism that tells us what a system is likely to do and how it interacts with its components and its environment.
Both are required to understand a system, but the great majority shift their problem solving skills, at their peril, towards Reductionism at the expense of Expansionism.
