The purpose of the United Nations is for the leaders of countries to come together and discuss issues that face the world. Of the 7 billion people and 195 countries of the world, this organization is needed and is a logical step toward maintaining order; their job is to set the rules for the world.
As a gesture of good faith, the leaders address problems in the world and try to work together to solve the problems as best they can. Where there is conflict, they put forth resolutions they believe would solve the problems. The UN is like parents refereeing children on the play ground, yet there are always one or a few children who will be disruptive and defiant.
The problem with the UN is that there are a few nations that have more influence on world policy than others. As a result, some countries get more advantages than others and some may not get what they want, and those others may resort to defiance and even retaliation. But we must understand that that is human nature.
But in a disturbing twist of destiny, when the UN and the majority of the countries rule together for the good of the people, there are countries that will revolt because of that. Human nature also dictates that some people simply do not like to play by the rules, even if those rules are fair by nature. Nevertheless, ultimately the job of the United Nations is to seek world peace and solutions to the struggles we all face as inhabitants of the earth.
“The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945. It is currently made up of 193 Member States. The United Nations can take action on the issues confronting humanity in the 21st century, such as peace and security, climate change, sustainable development, human rights, racism, immigration, disarmament, terrorism, humanitarian and health emergencies, gender equality, governance, food production, and more.”
When it comes to providing for the people and righting wrongs, none of these things seem to matter to the United States. The US does whatever it wants to do and totally ignores the resolutions put forth by the majority of the world. If the resolution clashed with the interest of the United States anywhere in the world, the US will discard the rules and make their own rules.
Since the founding of the UN – which the United Sates helped establish – the agenda for the world has apparently been set by the interest of the US. However, over the past 5 years, the nations of the world have spotted a weakness in the US and are now ignoring their interest and siding with the best interest of the people of the world.
