10 Reasons to Abolish the UN

In 10 Reasons to Abolish the UN, Greenfield shows why the "world body" has become a theatre of the absurd in which injustice flourishes. From failing to prevent outbreaks of genocide across the globe, to creating a rancid regimen of double standards that obsessively condemn Israel, while allowing countries such as Syria and Cuba to head its Human Rights Commission, the UN has become part of the problem rather than part of the solution. 

10 Reasons to Abolish the UN by Daniel Greenfield

There is no serious possibility that the United Nations will reform, because its own bureaucracy is the greatest obstacle to reform. So long as it continues to function, it will remain an enemy of peace and freedom twice over: because of its actions and because of its inaction.

The United Nations has corrupted its ideals and made them into the mercenary tools of tyrants. Worst of all it has done this under the umbrella of international law, a masquerade that has cost countless lives even as its lies have cruelly betrayed the hopes of millions, from the Hungarian freedom fighters to the Tutsi refugees.

Behind the mirage of democracy and human rights is an organization that answers to the worst elements in the international community. Under the blue flag lies a vast bureaucracy that falsely promises the oppressed peoples of the world that it will protect them, when its interventions occur only to serve its own vanity, power greed, and cowardice.

The UN is a vast global employment agency with no purpose except the perpetuation of its own power and authority. Its lofty buildings and the bustle of its vast armies of employees conceal its underlying corruption and uselessness.

American participation in the United Nations supports the deception that it is an international body capable of fair-minded governance. That deception cruelly betrays the hopes of the weak and the vulnerable and abets genocide, mass rape and terror.

The United Nations has become an organizational assault on its own founding principles. And all the while it undermines the sovereignty and rights of the free member nations who still believe that all men are created equal and that governments derive their authority from the people.

The only way to redeem those principles is to exit its corridors and walk a new path toward an alternative alliance that does more than pay lip service to freedom, democracy and human rights. Only America can be the nucleus of such an alliance. And only when the nation that gave the world freedom leaves the international order that impedes it can a global alliance of free nations truly be born.
