President Woodrow Wilson’s 14 Points were the terms he took to the Paris Peace Conference at the end of World War I. The proposal for a League of Nations was the fourteenth point. The League was designed to handle global diplomatic problems before they turned into war and was the most controversial part of the final treaty. This cartoon addresses the doubts expressed by critics about nations cooperating in the League by comparing them to those who doubted that the colonies could form the United States.
