According to Paul Boller, people were fond of telling this anecdote about Woodrow Wilson. At the end of World War I, Wilson presented his "Fourteen Points" to make sure nothing like the Great War would happen again. Politicians did not like the point as much as Wilson did. They refused to support Wilson's vision. According to the story, Wilson went to leave and Moses asked to speak to him. Moses asked, "Are you Mr. Wilson?" "I am," replied the president. "I am sorry for you for they have done such dreadful things to your "Fourteen Points," said Moses. "For the matter of that," said Wilson, "I should advise you to go back to earth and see what they've done to your Ten Commandments."
