Ringer BS: Peace? (68* d) RE: BS: Peace? 04 Jan 06

Ron Davies, 01 Jan 06 - 09:41 PM : "...all the UN critics have somehow not found time to answer whether they think the world would be better off without the UN--and why"

Do try and keep up, Ron; in my post of 30 Dec 05 - 07:26 AM I said that I do, and gave 5 reasons.

My only qualification was that the world would be better off without the UN in its current form. As someone else said, above, "Nice idea, shame about the reality." The trouble is, all trans-national entities (without exception) such as the UN, EU, WTO etc sound good in theory but are abysmal in practice. And always will be, I guess. Which is not to say that nothing they do is ever good, only that on balance they do more harm than good.
