Rhetoric or Reality?
If the advanced nations fail to respond to the winds of change and the developing countries choose rhetoric over reality, the great goal of economic development will be submerged in our common failure. (DR HENRY KISSINGER to the UN General Assembly. September 1975) In the 30 years since the United Nations Organisation was founded, there has been talk of its ineffectiveness and imminent dissolution -never more so than now when economic difficulties and differences are added to political ones.
Gerald Priestiand examines the state of the UN in the light of the international class warfare hinted at by Dr Kissinger in his Milwaukee speech.
