The United Nations has been known over the years as a peacekeeping organization. As a peace keeping organization it has upheld and has done its best to keep world peace. Over the years the United States has played a large role in the forming, functioning, and peacekeeping side of the United Nations. Recently the United Nations has been pressuring the U.S. to pay their dues, and have threatened to take away U.N. voice if not done. The U.S. has been researching on whether or not it benefits the country to belong to the U.N. and this has risen the question of whether or not the U.S. should continue it's U.N. membership. The question has been brought up because of political purpose of the U.N. and not because of its civil purpose. The U.S. should not continue its membership and should withdraw its financial, political and military support from the U.N.
The United Nation has had an interesting beginning and past. In the beginning of the United Nations, there were two founders, the Communists and the Council Relations. The common goal between these two organizations was to achieve a single socialist world government. The United Nations has also had a track record of choosing socialist one - worlders for leaders. For example, at the United Nations founding conference, Soviet spy Alger Hiss was appointed the position of Secretary - General. He was later proceeded by Norwegian socialist Trygve Lie, Swedish socialist Dag Hammarskjold, Burmese Marxist U Thant, Austrian former Nazi Kurt Waldheim, Peruvian socialist Javier Perez deCuellar, and Egyptian socialist Boutros Boutros Ghali. All of the Secretary - Generals of the past have used United Nation resources to their fullest extent to support and promote socialist causes around the world.
Proof that the United Nations is becoming more and more like a world socialist government is outstanding. In 1994, program planners for the United Nations met in Egypt and approved a twenty year, $17 billion dollar plan to control the worldwide population by encouraging abortion, sterilization, and controlled human breeding. Recently when Boutros Boutros Ghali held the position of Secretary - General in the United Nations he greatly endorsed a Global Tax. This Global Tax was proposed to place a tax on international currency exchanges; if passed the United Nations would be allowed to place a one tenth of one percent tax on the international money exchanges which total to a large sum of $250 trillion dollars. At one tenth of one percent that would bring the United Nations a large sum of $250 billion dollars which is twenty - five times the costs of the United Nations system in 1995.
The United Nations has had the financial support of the United States since its start. Currently the United States is allegedly in debt to the United Nations for an approximate amount of 1.4 billion dollars. The dues paid to the United Nations does not include the troops, equipment, program funding, and other support that the United States supplies. Currently each contributor to the United Nations can only be forced to pay up to twenty - five percent of its annual budget, and by chance the United States is the only nation that has to pay the full twenty - five percent; the nation that pays the second largest amount is Japan at fifteen and seven tenths percent of the annual budget. Now the United States citizens pay twenty - five percent of the United Nations budget and thirty - one percent of the United Nations specialized agencies budget. With all the financial and physical support the United States gives, the United Nations still claims that the United States is in debt to them.
The military strength of the United Nations has grown to be an unstoppable force. The United States enabled an official disarmament program called, "Freedom From War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World" was the first step in taking rights away and imposing many risks. The disarmament program asks for all nations, including the United States, to disarm, and give their military strength to the United Nations which would make the world power an incredible military power. From the looks of thing it looks as if the United Nations has been building its army to
