“God gave us the Ten Commandments, and we broke them. Wilson gives us the Fourteen Points. We shall see.” — Georges Clemenceau
Woodrow Wilson and his historic Fourteen Points are highlighted in the latest installment of Media Rich Learning's video collection, THE BIG PICTURE. The Fourteen Points outlined the president's vision for a post-war order that favored self-determination over colonialism, open agreements over secret deals, and an “a general association of nations” to help preserve the peace. While the Fourteen Points met with mixed reviews (and results) in Wilson's day, it was a bold statement of American idealism that has continued to reverberate through the decades.
