The Fourteen Points basically abolished secret treaties, gave freedom of the seas, free trade, make Austria-Hungary a free governed state, basically giving them self-determination, and of course the formation of the League of Nations. Other leaders of the Allied countries like Georges Clemenceau from France and David Lloyd George of Britain believed Wilson was being really idealistic and they also wanted Germany should be severely punished and be stripped of

This ideal would subsequently deter future fighting and violence between
