Should the U.N. be able to issue resolutions that require supporting legislation to be passed in its members countries? This has come up recently concerning a free speech and voting and several issues that I am just beginning to research. It struck me though that resolutions that mandate new legislation are violating the sovereignty of its member states. This puts the U.N. in the position of a Federal government and its member countries are relegated to state status and if you read a lot of the resolutions countries are even referred to as states. There is a good mix of political ideologies on this board so I was wondering what the various political factions take on this would be.
