- League of Nation and changes
The idea of an international organization find its roots in the early 18th Century, carried out through Kant's nib. As the world changes and goes towards a globalization of political, economical and social factors, the will of a new form of a society appears to be one of the major concepts of the new emerging industrial world. A phenomenon like capitalism, carries out values such as democracy, open market, liberalism, outbreak of industrialisation, demographical movements from the country to the cities. It also creates major problems such as the globalization of war, and the development of new weapons of mass destruction. Despite the existence of a couple or so of international organizations, whose aim was to vehicule ideas, common values, and opportunities and to confront themselves with different problems and oppositions, the development of the world created some critical gaps between European Countries. The end of the 19th Century is deeply affected by two major crises, first, the growth of capitalism, the race to industrialisation and to colonization, leaving behind it countries like Italy, Spain or Germany and, the appearance on the international scene, of two new countries, Japan and the United States of America. Colonization is the main engine of capitalism in Europe, but it is also widely criticized within the major European powers, as the outbreak of nationalism seems to be inevitable.
