Why the fuck is the US paying so much towards this bullshit, in the first place? What about that sweet fucking HQ building in New York? Who owns that? Is that the UN's, or is that American property that they're crashing in?
I may be (probably am) wrong but I think the land the building is built on was (still is?) owned by the Rockefeller family. Either they or the US government owns the land and lets the UN use it.

I think it was P.J. O'Rourke who said something along the lines of "they tore down a perfectly good slum to build the UN building".

Looking forward to the organization's collapse, partly for making Saudi Arabia head of the Women's Rights task force, but mostly for letting Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn have even the slightest bit of legitimacy in a world spotlight regarding "online bullying." Meanwhile said woman slandered Alec Holowka online for no good reason 7 years after the fact, cut off his career and support network, and drove him to suicide with mean words online.

It's literally UN territory. Or at least one of the 2 or 3 places in the world where you can send a postcard and have UN stamps honored on it.

If you want a successful world government, all you have to do is make the people feel that they are valued as individuals, that the government is working in their best interests (if not immediately, then actively working towards), and that they have a right to self-determination (within established boundaries, see point #2).

GFL making it work out, though.

They have a sculpture of a revolver with a knotted barrel in front of the main UN building in New York. They give the middle finger to the US constitution and people on a daily basis while happily accepting our money and land while trying to rule over us through bureaucratic decree (I wonder what happened to self-determination?).

If Trump magically revoked all UN funding and kicked their asses out of the US I would vote for him to be dictator of America for life. Fuck the UN.

I had no idea this existed. Of course a Swedcuck designed it.

Good. The last thing we need is an autocratic, unelected body dictating to other countries what they should be doing while their 'peace keepers' run around and rape. The UN should be reduced down to its sole purpose: So that the nuclear powers have a back channel to avoid WWIII. Drop all pretense of this globalist shit. Eliminate resolutions altogether, because they don't do fuck all. Let nations themselves meet together and sort the shit out themselves. Have the UN be the 'Off the record place where countries that can destroy the world talk about it on neutral ground' and leave it at that.
