http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/james ... l-economy/Here is the world’s most powerful intergovernmental institution essentially arguing for the destruction of the global economy, enforced rationing, Marxist wealth redistribution, greater regulation, the erosion of property rights and global governance by a new world order of technocrats and bureaucrats. And being so upfront about it they actually issue press releases, telling us what they’re planning to do and encouraging us to write about it.
I think what we are seeing here is a phenomenon found in 'intellectual analysis' throughout history, where a particular group removes itself more and more from actual reality and moves into pure abstract debate within: words.
The scholastic arguments (Aquinas) about angels (which admittedly bear some resemblance to debate about quantum physics); the postmodernist focus on reality as defined only by a subjective perspective...it's all words..and a rejection of factual material reality.
The UN is similar; it has removed itself more and more from reality. It exists solely in its talk, endless talk.
It exists in isolation from the real world of cause and effect; its actions in the world have no function, no rational cause, no constructive effect.
It produces nothing; it exists solely as a parasite on the world's nations. It babbles endlessly, announces numerous bills and mandates which no-one pays any attention to.
It ought to be disbanded.
