What Are Your Views On The Now Active UN Small Arms Initiative : Legitimate Component For World Governance? How Should It Be Enforced?.
We have had and are continuing many discussions here at TED Conversations on global governance and its feasibility. Many have pointed to the UN as the logical place to house this. Well right now, in fact starting May 9th the UN is taking up the issue of global small arms control. http://www.poa-iss.org/MGE/
We have never agreed, or even much discussed here at TED Conversations the parameters of what should be governed. Many though have pointed to the UN as the place for such global governance. Here is an issue under active consideration for global governance through the UN. Is this a legitiamte endeavor for the U.N. ? What are your views on the UN's global small arms control.initiative?
It will greatly enrich this conversation if we all read and start with the actual issues now before the UN ( see link above) .
Many countries are very intimidated by this move. There are slogans with Hillary Clintons picture up them at many foreign websites saying"Vote No on Small Arms" Would make for a lively and relevant conversation to bring the views expressed in other countries to this conversation as welll...as the UN will have to do in its deliberations.
