Forget about Sovereignty

“A system of world order – preferably a system of world government – is mandatory. . . The proud nations someday will see the light, and, for the common good and their own survival, yield up their precious sovereignty.”

- Walter Cronkite

We’ll learn to love the U.N.

“Today, Americans would be outraged if U.N. forces entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow, they will be grateful.”

- Henry Kissinger , 1991.

We should implement the Kyoto Protocol, even if no science supports it.

“A global climate treaty must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the green house effect.”

- Richard Benedict

In praise of the United Nations.

“The United Nations represents the idea of a universal morality, superior to the interests of individual nations. . . . The men who laid down their lives for the United Nations in Korea . . . . They died in order that the United Nations might live.”

- Harry S. Truman , October 24, 1950.

The United Nations should rule the planet.

“The Unired Narions is the biological metaorganism of the human species. We have now the birth of a global nervous system. We are beginning to have a global heart, be it only our love for nature, to preserve this earth — this planet of ours — and we will also see the bitrh of a global soul. Whoever will understand that we are a part of the universe and of evolution — that we are cells of a total humanity. We should replace the word politics by planetics. We need the planetary management, planetary caretakers. We need global sciences. We need a science of a global psychology, a global sociology, a global anhropology.”

- Robert Muller , March 30, 1995.

The UN should command U.S. troops.

“I’m an internationalist. I’d like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations.”

- John Kerry , February 18, 1970.

United Nations use of eugenics.

“Even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable.”

- Julian Huxley
