Well, I could write a book about how and why the UN is an abject failure.
Not only does it not help, it actually makes the world a more dangerous place. It has been hijacked by radical Islamists, by crazed dictatorial regimes both on the far right and the far left, by countries with only power and money on their minds regardless of how it's attained.
The sad part in all of this, is that most of the world's few naive democracies still left, don't get it.
And if and when they do, it'll be too late. Our political correctness is killing us, literally.
We need to push our governments to pull out of the UN immediately. Let Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya, etc. remain and continue to do their 'important' work. At least we won't be funding them anymore. I'm sure we can put our hard earned dollars to work in far better ways.
Why are the democratic countries still supporting the mess we call the UN?
Simple: We, the citizens of those countries haven't made it clear to our governments that we no longer want any part of it.
We've had enough of countries with some of the worst human rights records ever, running the UN's human right's council. We've had enough state sponsored scandals continuing daily with no consequences. We've had enough corrupt UN delegations partying in New York or wherever they may be, at our expense.
The United Nations (an oxymoron if I've ever heard one) is not doing the world any good. It is certainly helping to Turn Our World Upside Down!
