Rice urges "Revolution of Reform" at UN Saturday, September 17, 2005 "The time to reform the United Nations is now," she said. "And we must seize this opportunity together." Sounds just lovely. So, how can that be accomplished? With empowerment. And the UN, the whole that is the sum of its parts, is not empowered. It is only the particular nations that are empowered. Only the particular nations are able to empower the UN because only the particular nations have the power. Only the part can empower the whole and only an empowered whole can preserve the part. Any part cannot preserve any part. The council, Rice said, "must have the moral authority to condemn all violators of human rights - even those that sit among us in this hall." She said the new council that is being established should have more credibility. And that, she said, means it should "never, never empower brutal dictatorships to sit in judgment of responsible democracies." By choosing to not empower the UN, the particular nations choose to empower brutal dictatorships. If the parts, the particular nations including the US, truly want to seize the opportunity to together to reform the UN, then EMPOWER the UN. Until the UN gets empowered by the nations with power; until a true world government is established by the particular nations, brutal dictatorships that sit in judgement shall always have license to do what they want, and there is always absence of order.
