in response to reader comment: Lack of a mandate

Submitted by dm, Jun 29, 2016 01:34

I agree wholeheartedly on your overview, both of these organisations have consistently exceeded their mandate. Although the initial set up was for a good cause it is now to be seen that the activities that take place perhaps have personal agenda's that interfere with the humanitarian aspect of life.

Accepting countries into their organisation that have no civil liberties, human rights or are even remotely interested in world peace, does not fare well for the people that are presently running things. (and certainly not for the rest of world, as the people who are required to listen to them).

In fact the level of interference that the UN is considering, by monitering or shutting down free speech is most certainly reminiscent of the Hitler regime. What next! are they going to set up an extra military arm, a take on the Brown Shirts who ran around beating up or killing anyone who speaks their mind.

Looks like the UN has lost its focus and is listening to the countries who's only agenda is to push the world back to the 6th Century.
