The idealist of the 10th point - the collective security concept.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The idealist of the 10th point - the collective security concept There's writing in the 10th Article of the League of Nations: "The members of the league undertake to preserve against external aggression the territory and existing independence of all members of the League. In case of threat of danger the Council of the League shall advise upon the means by which this obligation shall be fulfilled." I really like this point! But I can't refuse that it's a very idealistic idea. To set up the League of Nation, the more countries join, the better. But if there are not a lot of countries that join the League, then the League won't work (as what happened in the history). Many countries didn't want to join the League, because there weren't many profits to get! ...read more.

Of course, they've got already a way how to deal with them, but what if the country doesn't care about it? What if the country is very rich and it thinks it doesn't need the League at all? What if they want to be independent? (As same as what Japan, Germany, Italy and other countries did.) There's many problems which is very difficult to solve, and especially when the League didn't have enough money, power and strength! In the 10th point there was a sentence where's writing that in case of threat of danger the Council of the League shall advise upon the means by which this obligation shall be fulfilled.

Conclusion

said, every country who joins the League has to disarm, France didn't have enough power to protect from Germany and because of the weakness of the League, they were afraid that the League won't be able to protect them and Britain is not going to help them either. In other way, Britain was looking for rebuilding their trade and not to be an international police force. So because the League of Nation was in a very bad condition, the countries that wanted to join the League won't join, because they could see how weak the League is, and that if they'll join, they won't get any benefit, because the League won't be able to protect or help them in any cases. I think the 10th point of the League of Nation is really very idealistic, because it's very difficult to be set up and to make it perfect. History - question ...read more.
