The UN does lunch

Opponents of the new transnational order have taken heart from its inevitable gross corruption. The UN, the EU, the Clinton White House and similar institutions reject all reliable principles of human loyalty. As a result, officials don’t have any reason to sacrifice their own interests to the public good, and projects of social reconstruction suffer. The result is that, to some degree, we all get left alone — or such is the hope. Here’s the latest evidence to support that view: diplomats loot lunch and booze at UN. Food workers went out on strike, the doors of the dining hall were unlocked, and the bigwigs went on a rampage, making off even with the silverware.

Imagine the lunchroom as the Planet Earth, its a metaphor for what’s to come. I just read in news Russia is banding with EU today.

These thieves and “bratty food-fighting teenagers” wish to run the world?

I’m no defender of the UN (except for its excellent restaurants for staff and diplomats which I once enjoyed while in possession of a press pass), but the report of this looting of the UN restaurants seems so extreme that I’m wondering if it’s as exaggerated as the similar reports of the looting of the Museum of Antiquities in Baghdad.
