The United Nations routinely speaks of freedom and democracy, yet the world body is a profoundly undemocratic organization. The big five, China, Britain, France, Russia, and the United States dominate war and peace issues in the Security Council. In the UN organizations like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, it is one dollar, one vote. Many organizations and NGOs have launched new efforts to democratize The United Nations. Talking about these efforts are the two guests of the program; Jim Paul head of Global Policy Forum, a research and advocacy organization that focuses on the United Nations and the international issues and Bill Pace of the World Federalist Movement, a group founded after World War II by such luminaries as Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell. They talk about the United nations and fundamental reforms needed in the decision making processes extending the rights of the citizen groups to the work of the General Assembly
and other areas of the UN.
