Since Woodrow’s fourteen points provided a succinct plan for world peace, they formed part of the Treaty of Versailles. Notably, not all points were encompassed in the treaty, which ultimately resulted in its partial success. Although the Treaty of Versailles was successful, it failed substantially in its enforcement and its inherent human element. Woodrow’s fourteen points invigorated the idealistic notion of peace in the absence of victors. Woodrow’s fourteen points incorporated in the Treaty of Versailles include self determination and the League of Nations augmenting idealistic notions that concluded that the war’s aim was to end all other wars. The treaty reflected European countries’ need to end Germany’s power and affirm their own.
Through the self-determination point, Woodrow points showed that some of the causes of the war, for instance, imperialism and nationalism were avoidable.

In the concept, dishonesty, violence and trickery should be shunned. For instance, the democratic party of America has been associated with idealism since the world war I. The concept is also termed as Wilsonianism or Wilsonian idealism developed by Woodrow Wilson.
From a historical perspective, "When one looks back across the long sweep of American history, perhaps the most striking fact that emerges is that the United States is a global power, and has been one from earliest times," (Mead, p. 21). A dominant player in the world community that would be called upon to serve others within the world community and after the events of September 11, 2001, would find its own nation at greater risk than originally thought.
No other country can match the health and productivity of its economy, the extent of its scientific and technological resources, its ability to sustain massive levels of defense spending, or the power, sophistication, and global reach of its armed forces.
United States, who are generally known for their relatively interventionist and hawkish attitudes towards foreign policies, and their unsufficient support for the "small government" standards and limitations of social spending, comparing to other American parties and classical
