And who is to run this global government? The unelected bureaucrats who staff the United Nations. And who will set policy for them? The corrupt, undemocratic nations that comprise the U.N. General Assembly…
The U.N. is an inherently undemocratic institution. Only 45 percent of its members are deemed to be “free” nations by the Freedom Institute. And about one-third of the world’s population –including notably China –are governed, and represented in the U.N., by dictatorial governments.
When the nations of the world sit augustly in the General Assembly chamber behind name plates for each country, the spectacle is deceptive. The delegate from Russia should not be called the representative of the “Russian Federation.” He is the representative of one man — Vladimir Putin. The Chinese delegate should frankly be called the representative of the handful of members of that country’s Politburo. The delegate for Venezuela represents only Hugo Chavez.
To give the United States, Britain, France, Canada, Germany, Japan and the other democracies the same one vote each as the U.N. gives dictatorships is a travesty.
When the U.N. was a forum for negotiation to avoid war, it made sense to take the nations as they come, treating free and not free equally. In avoiding war, it doesn’t matter if the Russian representative only speaks for Putin because it is on Putin’s say-so that a war could be launched.
