The first world war started in 1914 with the murder of a monarch. The United States was neutral until 1917 when Germany announced a policy of unrestricted submarine warfare, which the United States considered a threat to American commercial shipping.1 In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proposal of terms for ending the war. The proposal was delivered in a speech that became known as the Fourteen Points speech. The fourteen points included the suggestion of an association of nations, a system of international law and security and unrestricted trade.
World War I ended in 1919 with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. The Treaty of Versailles was the implementation of the Fourteen Points and included the League of Nations as the international association of nations. The League of Nations was the first attempt to establish a global structure to govern the actions of nations towards other nations and towards people.
THE COVENANT OF THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS
THE HIGH CONTRACTING PARTIES, In order to promote international co-operation and to achieve international peace and security by the acceptance of obligations not to resort to war by the prescription of open, just and honourable relations between nations by the firm establishment of the understandings of international law as the actual rule of conduct among Governments, and by the maintenance of justice and a scrupulous respect for all treaty obligations in the dealings of organised peoples with one another Agree to this Covenant of the League of Nations
The Versailles Treaty included such draconian financial obligations on Germany that it ultimately led to World War II. Recalling in the Businessman’s Conspiracy, they thought that the way to world peace was by bankrupting the nation-state which is source of military power which is the source of the ability to wage war.

International Labour Office
The first international, non-governmental organization to form was for labour. Part XIII, Section 1, Articles 387-3993 of the Versailles treaty defined an organization for labor stating the following as the reason:
Whereas the League of Nations has for its object the establishment of universal peace, and such a peace can be established only if it is based upon social justice;
And whereas conditions of labour exist involving such injustice, hardship, and privation to large numbers of people as to produce unrest so great that the peace and harmony of the world are imperilled; and an improvement of those conditions is urgently required…
When the League of Nations was replaced by the United Nations, the International Labour Office was the first organization to reconstitute themselves under the United Nations Charter. They changed their name to the International Labour Organization and they are still in operation today.

One of the post World War I actions the League of Nations did take concerned war refugees. The League had three commissions to deal with refugees. Fridjtof Nansen, an explorer, a university professor and a Commission member was appointed to be the High Commissioner for Refugees. Nansen is credited with the concept of international passports – a system he implemented using his authority as High Commissioner. The link below is one part of a multi-part series on refugee resettlement.
The U.S. Senate never ratified the Treaty of Versailles which was a major embarrassment to Woodrow Wilson because it was Wilson’s Fourteen Point Plan that formed the basis for the Treaty including the establishment of League of Nations but it was out of the seeds of the League of Nations that the conspiracy to build a privatized international system of “governance” for the benefit of the Industrialists – Merchants of Peace took root.
