Epiphany On Corruption

Over at Tech Central Station, a very bright guy has looked at the useless organization known as the United Nations and come up with an explanation as to why the UN is the way it is. The core concept is neatly explained:
The United Nations is the pre-eminent trade association for people involved in the business of government power. Actually, it is more focused than that. The United Nations is the trade association for the world's executive branches -- the place where executive branches come together to promote their individual interests to one another, and to promote the expansion of executive authority in general.
The light bulb goes off! Viewed in this context, the UN’s actions are more understandable and predictable. Read the whole thing, it’s worth a few minutes of your time.
