UN Human Rights Council

This has got to be one of the most idiotic councils I have ever seen; it is so obviously lopsided and has no relation at all to human rights. The member countries are all some of the worst violaters of human rights themselves, and basically they are just using it to further their own goals, which have nothing at all to do with freedom or people's rights. But, consider that they are part of the UN, which is one of the most corrupt, money-squandering, useless organizations in the world. There is a need for an organization like the UN, but what we have now is a farce.
Just my opinion.

Yes, the UN has its imperfections. It originated with a good idea, but the politics and corruption took it down. It is a shame, because global governance will be a necessary tool in the future.

Bonita, the U.N. was started by COMMUNISTS! Apparently, you think that communism is a good thing. (Notice my jaw dropping to the floor in stunned astonishment.)

If you think global governance is such a good thing, check out the Revelation of John. (You know, the last book in the Bible? Of course, that means you have to believe the Bible, which is verboten to all good communists!)

Personally, I think there is some good to be done in a loose confederation of countries, but I don't thing global government is feasible. The difference in culture, language, attitudes, geography, climate, religion, etc predludes this. It is hard enough to get the states in the US to come together on issues, for the same reasons. With nations we have an even bigger gap. That is why I personally feel that all we can do is try to get and organization to help countries get along with one another without trying to run the entire world.
