I think that re-organization is a good idea. I don't know how the .7% payment idea is going to fly, it'll obviously be a sticking point, but how
much is uncertain.
The security council is critical to the most esoteric functions of the UN. It obviously needs to be reformed. When it was created, only the Soviet
Union was communist. France was more sympathetic to the american-english bloc, and China was Nationalist China. Then things radically changed. Now
even Russia has completely changed. Its kind of silly to think that thats unimportant. So re-organization is necessitated. I've noticed that the
Pakistanis are often the ones who contribute a lot of troops to UN missions. Perhaps Pakistan should be given a permanent seat.
I don't think its in anyone's interests to give anyone else veto powers tho.
I think that the re-organization of the human rights commission into a human rights council is interesting. Certainly, opressive states like Cuba, or
even china, have no place on a UN board to promote human rights. If one wants to exclude the US then fine, but certianly pushing away the US and
favouring Libya was absurd. It showed that the system itself didn't work.
I'd think that the UN should try to incorporate globalist entities that aren't part of it, like the World Bank. Maybe even a legitimization of the
Bilderberger group would be a good idea. Give it advisory status or somesuch. But that sort of thing is very unlikely.
