The apparent truth, as we all know now was that UN Tourism had urged world leaders to promote tourism in their countries.
Nothing wrong with tourism. As a matter of fact, it can be the best contribution to both liberty and prosperity.
Really, little wrong with the UN either. The UN idea that is. The combination, however, tends to be dangerous.
However, as my esteemed colleague Silberstein pointed out today; maybe it would have been better. We were not watching a horror show here, but – as is intriguingly common in the UN world – the opportunity to get handle a man who has starved the people, devastated farms and families, and in general terrorised everyone in his presence.
Here’s my idea: Give the fellow the job, let some decent people clean up the mess, or maybe we should make him head of the UNFCCC.
