You are right about a lot of the injustices and it will always go on as usual if nothing is done. A good example is Africa and is large resources for it's economy. But I for one always take a stand that it is not always America's fault nor is it just Americas responsibility to fix it alone - what a joke. Why is it always America's fault? Why are we always to blame? Are we the only ones that have screwed up the world?
I personally think Obama put the idea in the UN's suggestion box.

Two Cow Politics
Socialism : You have two cows. You keep one and give one
to your neighbor.
Communism : You have two cows. The government takes them
Both and provides you with milk.
Fascism : You have two cows. The government takes them and
sells you the milk.
Bureaucracy : You have two cows. The government takes them
Both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and
Then pours it down the drain.
Capitalism : You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
Corporate: You have two cows. You sell one, force the other to
produce the milk of four cows and then act surprised
When it drops dead.
Democracy : You have two cows. The government taxes you
To the point that you must sell them both in order to
support a man in a in a foreign country who has only one cow
All of the above?
anarchy...you have two cows, people come and shoot you, and take both cows.
ron paul government...you have 2 cows, people come over to buy some milk, you tell them to get their own cows if they want milk
romney government...you have 2 cows, romney buys up all the livestock feed and water rights, you get desperate and have to sell him the cows and your land.

Some here should stop spinning this as a "US versus the rest of the world" issue ... it simply isn't.
Instead, it's the decent ordinary people versus the banks.edit on 26-8-2012 by NorthernThird because: (no reason given)

I just can't resist noting here that 10 years ago, you would have been looked at like a radical tin foil hat type to suggest the UN would levy any form of global tax, too. It's been a loooong 10 years, eh?

either you will consent, else it will be taken without your consent or knowledge. that much is obvious.

I propose we tax all 3rd World countries for all the Internet scams, credit card fraud, counterfeit goods, etc which originate 90+ percent from those locations.
If I had my way, we'd take the top Internet fraud countries each year and lock them out of the Internet until their governments / police start cooperating.edit on 26-8-2012 by ecoparity because: (no reason given)
