Bolton and the UNWhile doing some readings about the development and subsequent failure of the League of Nations for my course on international organisation I've had an idea as to what the US might be trying to do with appointing Bolton to the UN.
...the League could not fulfill in the international sphere the same tasks which the state performed in the national community.Transfer that to the UN; the US seeks legitimacy through the UN because they want to lead the world legitimately. Not just be the sole superpower, but actually legitimate the UN to the point where it is the world authority and under their control, and thus they control the world... Conspiracy theories abound. Back to work, rats.
...the existence of a political central authority standing above individual states had seemed incompatible. Such an authority was still nonexistent.
