Okay, is it possible for you to describe this without passing it through
your internal filters? A URL? I'm completely aware of your politics, and
you're not going to sway me, so just the facts please ma'am.

Man, you are SO restrained since the last time this bounced between us.
What happened?

realised who it was addressed to, and gritted my teeth)

Who mentioned the UN? Not I.

The rest of the world is totally aware as to who controls the UN, I
doubt it is seen as representative of the planet outside the US and
Europe, and I'm not so sure the Europeans feel this way.

I was thinking of something else.
And no, I don't want to live under one world govt, mainly because it
would result in the entire world eventually becoming homogenous and
bland. Other than the cultural diversity issues, the sooner the
better. If we can't get rid of these horrible nation-states entirely,
at least let's have just one so we can avoid titanic wars.
