56. The UN is not more important than any single country
lets not forget one single fact - you don't have to embrace democracy, freedom or civil rights to be part of the UN. They welcome every dictator and despot with open arms. And people from those countries serve on every UN committee and organization.

So don't give me shit about the lofty ideals of the UN - when you think UN you are thinking of Western European liberal ideals. I can assure you that that is not what the UN means to China, North Korea, Sudan, Iran, Saudi Arabia or any of the other non-democratic states in the world.
