Facing ‘Cash-Flow Crisis,’ the U.N. Cuts Hiring, Heating, Escalators and the A.C. - United Nations slated to run out of funding by October's end.

The UN got woke, and now is going broke.

Maybe you'd get donations and be seen as important if you did something about the Pacific garbage patch, or systematic abuse of women in 3rd world nations,
They already do that, though?
The IMF has something similar going on to support women in 3rd and 2nd world nations IIRC
We barely hear about what the UN does unless the MSM finds it newsworthy (i.e children talking at the general assembly, or they berate certain politicians). Pretty unfortunate tbh

The UN is a worthless antiquated relic of the Cold War and serves no purpose in the 21st Century. It was only meant to be a neutral back channel to prevent nuclear war between the superpowers. It should have no other purpose and I find it to be utterly sickening that the UN now only exists as a means for the Third World to bitch about America and try to bully the West. The only reason why the UN has any relevance at all is because the European Union constantly sucks their cock and pushes for their agenda while America foots the bill.

The EU and the UN are utter cancer and I would be utterly ecstatic if the United States officially withdrew from the UN.

NATO might also be a holdover from that era that relies too much on American funding, but it still has some actual value for Western liberal democracy, at least in theory. The UN doesn't even have that going for them.

So that's why they can't pay their fucking traffic fines and shit like that.

I thought it was because they were Third World shit-fucking child-raping mongs, not because the UN was out of money to pay for it.

Maybe they could have some of their members go out and apply for welfare. I hear the Somalis could show them how to suck a couple hundred million out of the US welfare system the right way, like God intended.

I think there's something to be said for having the geopolitical equivalent of a containment thread.

Most UN members states haven't paid their dues in years or decades and those that do pay little. There's no conspiracy.

The US pays 22% of the UN budget, the highest of any member

India pays 0.7%.
lmao @ Commonwealth states and Scandis all being true believers and paying their dues.
Rather surprised both Ukraine and Poland paid in, you'd think Russia being on the security council would make them pretty jaded re: the UN's effectiveness.

Reminder the UN owes the city of New York millions of dollars in unpaid fines racked up by its own employees and foreign diplomats who consider themselves above the traffic laws the rest of us are subject to.

The UN shouldn't get a single red cent until they can prove they're spending it on things actually worth the money. You know, like foreign aid/relief programs that aren't just raping people and spreading cholera, or being a foreign for shitholes like Saudi Arabia to talk about how great human rights and women's rights are in their country (and be leading board members of those UN organizations), inviting hacks like Anita and Zoe and Greta to meetings, and in general being wasteful as shit. There's nothing wrong with the UN in concept or theory, but holy fucking shit did it evolve into a mess. Shit, I'd be happy if the UN was only 90% fucked up instead of 99.9999999%.

Lazy-ass Arabs don't even pay for their Jew-bashing forum, wow.

This is exactly right except for one detail: the UN is a relic of the Second World War, not the Cold War. The security council is literally the WW2 Winner's Club.

True, it was created as a direct result of World War II.

I just call it a "Cold War relic" because any actual usefulness and relevance it had was from being a neutral ground for the United States and Soviet Union during that era.

To get back on topic though, the modern UN is worthless and is about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.

If we simultaneously left NATO and the UN I would die of dehydration from orgasm. Both worthless money sinks long past their expiry date.

With a $5.4b yearly budget, that's enough money that each member nation would have $28m in expenses per year. I feel like translators couldn't possibly be that expensive..
You've got to pay your pedophile army something while they make child pornography rings and human slavery operations.

Also, replace the UN with a diner where China, the US and Russia meets every Tuesday. It'd be the same shit and serve the same function. Eurofags aren't invited because they don't matter. Only when France is turned into a caliphate are they invited because they'd actually use their nukes.

Cut all of the UN's little useless committees, disband the rape brigades, send the General Assembly home packing and keep the Security Council running so the big boys can still bitch at each other. BAM! not only have I saved the UN billions I have also ensured that it still performs the only function actually may matter in the future depending on how close we all get to China and the US swinging their dicks around in the pacific.

I'll be expecting my medal in the mail Guterres.
