Just a thought..


""We the Peoples determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind and to reaffirm faith in fundemental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.
And for these ends
To practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours and to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security, and to ensure, by the acceptance of principles and the intitution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common interest, and to employ international machinery for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples.

The above is the preamble to the United Nations Charter, 1945.

Does anyone else think that every person in power of any sort should have this branded on their foreheads, because they've obviously forgotten it.
Every morning when they look in the mirror they should read it and be ashamed of their actions.

Think about it I actually read this aloud and it took 55 seconds. Or is that too long an attention span for Tony, George et al.

Perhaps this is shorter for them
"" Our object in the construction of the state is the greatest happiness of the whole, and not that of any one class""

Plato........dont learn very quick do we.

Take care everyone just felt a bit serious there.
