The Preamble of the Charter of the United Nations begins with the words, “We the peoples of the United Nations determine to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war” Can the UN save humanity from war?
“The UN has proved in all these years only one thing: that it is as impotent as its predecessor, the League of Nations.
The members of the UN are the people who are going to create the third world war. The UN has no power to prevent it; it is only a debating club, and not of the best kind. It is not even democratic.
“The big powers like America and the Soviet Union have the capacity to veto any resolution. Just one nation, America or Russia, can stop any resolution which is being passed by the whole world. Is this democratic? Every nation, small or big, poor or rich, must have equal rights! In all these years the UN has not been able even to do that.
It is just keeping people consoled: ‘Don’t be afraid, we are going to save you.’ In fact, from whom are they going to save us? They are the people we have to be saved from!
“The UN has not been able to stop the increasing amount of nuclear weapons. That should be the first step if you don’t want the third world war. Why wait for the last moment? Why not start it now? And the basic step will be that no war preparations are made. When everybody is prepared to fight… in fact they will be forced to fight, just because each country has invested so much energy and power, and it has piled up nuclear weapons sky high: what are the nations going to do with those weapons? And they have poured such immense amounts of money into them. At what point will the UN stop them? And the Soviet Union can just veto it, America can veto it.
But this is how politicians have been cheating humanity all along, throughout the whole history of man. They say one thing and they do just the opposite.
“It is very easy to publish a postal stamp that says, ‘We the peoples of the United Nations are determined to save humanity from the scourge of war.’ Who are these ‘we’? Have you asked the people of the world?
Nobody wants war around the world except these idiotic politicians, because without war they have no job. War keeps politicians powerful. People have to depend on politicians because the war is coming.
“Adolf Hitler wrote in his autobiography, My Struggle…he has a few very important points to make.
The first thing he says is that never in history has a great leader been born unless there is war.
“That’s true. If there had been no second world war you would have never heard of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Winston Churchill, Roosevelt — they all became stars high in the sky. Of course, millions of people died to make them great leaders of men.
“The same has been the case all along, throughout history.
The politician wants to be on the top, as high as possible. If there is peace, no fight, no war, no preparation for war, he is just ordinary — perhaps a little bit less intelligent than the average person.
“His intelligence is not better than the average person’s; it can be worse.
“Before the second world war, the same promise was given by the League of Nations: ‘We are going to save the world from war.’ But those were the same people who fought the second world war.
And I say to you, these same people who constitute the UN are going to create the third world war.
“These stamps are cheap. You can go on befooling humanity, but for how long? It is time that humanity understands the politician and his cunningness. Even in the UN you cannot be peaceful, discussing in a friendly way. I said it is only a debating club and not the best one, because nobody is listening to anybody else. It is a tower of Babel: everybody is speaking for his government, his nation, his politics, and is not ready to listen to anything else.
“Do you know what Khrushchev did in the UN? He was the premier of the Soviet Union…and this kind of behavior and the people who behave in this way, can they prevent the second world war? Then who is going to start it? Do they think I am going to start the third world war, that the red people around the world are going to start the third world war?
“Khrushchev was delivering his talk to the UN, and he became so angry that he took his shoe off and started beating on the table with the shoe! A great history, not an ordinary history. They could not prevent even Khrushchev beating their faces with his shoe, shouting and screaming at the whole UN.
In all these years they have not been able to do anything at all. This is a sheer wastage of time.
“The fortieth anniversary should be declared as the death of the UN! Finished! There is no point, they cannot agree. But the existence of UN gives consolation to people: ‘We don’t need to be worried, the UN is taking care of us.’ And the UN consists of warring nations who have nuclear weapons. They have been talking about putting a stop to it, but it is just pure talk; nobody stops.”
