威爾遜和摩西 - 古德明
Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States from 1913 to 1921, led his country into the First World War in 1917. In January 1918, he issued his Fourteen Points as a basis for peace, stressing the need for a League of Nations.*
According to a popular story, when Wilson died in 1924 and went to heaven, he met Moses. "You are Mr Woodrow Wilson, are you not?" asked Moses. "I am." "I am very sorry for you," said Moses. "Why so?" asked Wilson. "Because they have done such dreadful things to your Fourteen Points." "For the matter of that," returned Wilson, "I should advise you to go back to the earth and see what they have done to your Ten Commandments."
