Lord Black on the corrupt useless UN

Lord Black proposes radical reform, I think it's too late for that. We should leave the UN. We should start a council of democracies and leave the un to collapse under its own corruption. It is disappointing that the recent outrageous criticism of Quebec by the United Nations Human Rights Council has not led to a serious debate in Canada about the country’s almost slavish veneration of the United Nations. The basic problem with the UN is that almost no one has used it for what it was ostensibly intended for: To produce equitable co-operation, or at least civilized exchanges, between all the countries of the world. It was devised by Franklin D. Roosevelt to help convince his previously isolationist countrymen that the world was less dangerous than they feared, and to disguise through international organizations and U.S.-directed collegiality the blunt fact that the United States effectively ruled the world except for what was under direct occupation by Stalin’s Red Army.

I also must disagree with Lord Black, as the UN is beyond reform. Canada needs to withdraw from this corrupt cesspool before we completely lose our sovereignty, and I am sure other democratic countries will follow. It would not mean living in isolation, since that is the role of our embassies.

I Support Lord Black
