By Elizabeth Shaw, published 24/10/2013

The UN was not created to take mankind to heaven, but to save humanity from hell.

"Our D+ grade on climate change can be improved..."

Absolutely! Let's rally round and see if we can get it up to an 'F'! Given that the avowed aim of UN 'climate change' policy is to bankrupt its richer members in order to benefit its poorer ones, the lower we manage to score, the better.

The UN has demonstrated its inability to deal with what is most important like hunger, disease, poor governance and conflicts like Rwanda, Syria, North Korea, Iran, Egypt, Somalia, Eritrea, etc.

Yet it gets involved in advocating and attempting to impose 'nanny state' policies and advocating ideological beliefs like Agenda21, climate change, Kyoto Protocol, renewable energy and carbon pricing on the countries that are doing the best job of managing the needs of their people and the environment. The UN is almost as bad as our ABC at advocating loony Left policies. If we cannot remove the ideological bias of the 'progressive' advocates from the UN and the ABC, we need to progressively withdraw funding from both and aim to privatise the ABC.

In response to the author's pathetic attempt at shaming Australia - "D" to "F" indeed! She should be ashamed of herself.

Yes its true the UN deserves an F on the most intractable international problems. The UN Resolution concerning Syria has done nothing to stop Syria's Civil War - although the UN Resolution has certainly given the Assad dictatorship increased legitimacy.

I thought the author was only asking for more money for the limo fleet of UN delegates* in New York.

* that is UN delegates from dirt poor Third World countries.

Full of failed, power hungry developing world politicians and others living off taxes from the West while dictating highly suspect environmental policies on Western countries in order to increase influence and extract carbon tax money (Yes,they get a share of our Carbon Tax!).

The UN is attempting to become a global power in its own right and recently failed in its attempt to take over the internet in order to centralise its control. This would have let it censor dissenting ideas particularly in regards to its environmental policies. Its also keen on a transaction tax on all financial transactions simply to fill its own coffers.

The UN has been particularly ineffective in dealing with response to famines which are in fact predictable as they are usually due to weather events and subsequent crop failure in the horn of Africa.

Remember, this is the organisation which allowed the Maurice Strong to rise to the top, dictate Climate policy and subsequently (allegedly) steal nearly 1 million dollars in the oil for food scandal and then flee to China to avoid conviction.

Why should these unelected and often dubious and shady individuals dictate our lives? and why should we support them?

That the U.N. has allowed Israel to occupy the Palestinians since 1948 shows to me its corruption and weakness and impotence.

The original intent of the U.N. was admirable, but nations like the bullying U.S. and its imperial Allies used their power to subvert and manipulate the U.N. They turned it into a joke!

It does do good work in some areas but when it comes to stopping the warmongers and imperialists it fails completely.

It needs to be reconstituted so that all nations can influence its workings, not just the psychotic war-lovers!

The UN is a corrupted institution like the World Bank and the US Federal Reserve. In the West,the private banking cartels own our Govts and we the debt serfs.
