    If U.N. is put to rest, do you see an alternative organisation, or do you find the whole idea of an organisation like that impossible?

    Possibly if the member countries all had a common goal and pursued it honestly.

    Yeah, I know it's sort of far-fetched... but still, one would like to see some sort of... U.N. - like organisation? It feels kind of sad thinking that we (the humas) can't act together in case of disasters and conflicts.

    Sometimes humans have been amazingly cooperative is helping each other in need. Don't condemn the whole race because one organization was corrupted.

    Okay, but can't there be an alternative then? A sort of un-corrupted U.N.?

    I can see the headlines "New and Improved Ultra-UN."

    Sure there can be an alternative, but it'd just be a cheap genaric knock off.
