Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

on a different note...

Landor eats United Nations.
Just wanted to beat Bolton to it.

For those of you not following the UN reform agenda, which is suppose to culminate at the General Assembly summit in two weeks, Bolton has essentially run amuck (it's not clear if there's approval from the White House, but there's not any disapproval, so...). He is arguing that the UN delete the phrase "Millennium Development Goals" from the draft resolution, which all heads of state will have to vote on at the summit. They want to substitute "agreed upon international development goals", which essentially lessens the specificity and the subsequent requirements for developed countries to contribute 0.7% of their Gross National Income as international aid (known as Official Development Assistance, ODA). Everyone knows the US won't meet this even if they sign and despite the fact that the Bush administration has signed these specific goals before, it makes even less sense to renege now. What it does do, is allow a bunch of asshole countries to essentially tear the document to shreads by gutting any other stringent requirements on human rights, combating terrorism, etc. To sum up, the US/Bolton strategy is just incredibly counterproductive and highly effective at pissing people off.
