USSR Expelled from the League of Nations (1939)

The League of Nations was an international confederation of countries created after World War I and disbanded following World War II when many of its functions were transferred to the United Nations. The League collapsed when faced with threats to international peace from all sides in the 1930s, including the Spanish civil war, Japan's resumption of war against China, and the appeasement of Adolf Hitler at Munich.

The valued contributions of the League Of Nations are often overlooked in this modern era, but they laid down a solid foundation for the betterment of life in many countries.
The world is a far better place for the Leagues existence, just a shame that all parties did not adhere to the founding principles.

"Its last important act was to expel the Soviet Union in 1939 for doing what?" The invasion of Finland.

The League of Nations had its limitations, to a large degree, in the absence of the United States of America from the outset of its formal existence. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Article_X_of_the_Covenant_of_the_League_of_Nations

Yes.

Then, as now, the world looked to the United States of America for leadership.

Had the League of Nations continued it would have failed as has the United Nations. Neither one has or has enough teeth. United Nations is a misnomer in itself. It is a shame because on the humanities side of things great work is done by The United Nations in combatting poverty and food deprivation, and in getting medicines to areas where needed, as well as relief work… but it is on a small scale due to a lack of will or cooperation on the part of the member nations.

Behind the ethos is the notion of World Government. How good it would be if the world acted as one for the good of man… but that will never happen… at least while those ugly notions of nationalism and patriotism exist and can be called upon.
