Israeli Battle for True Democracy

 

A war of a different kind is brewing to come to a head in Israel. It will be billed as the valiant confrontation to save democracy. This is actually a very accurate summation but who is attempting to save democracy and who is simply vying for power over the future of Israel is to be determined. Another angle to decide this battle is one of political views, the old socialists attempt at a last-ditch effort to retain their stranglehold over all decisions of the realm against the Zionist and nationalist struggle to break that stranglehold and return the rule of law to all the people with the elected representatives deciding the nation’s fates. The rumors over the unfolding coalition agreements has made some strong inferences that included within is a rough sketch for judicial reform and an end to the Supreme Court’s ability to override any decision be they made by the Knesset or even military commanders during a conflict. Part and parcel of this conflict is the method by which justices are chosen. Let us start there.

 

Currently a committee is selected to choose new justices for the Supreme Court as well as the lower courts. This committee had an unassailable makeup giving the sitting Supreme Court Justices along with the Attorney General and a member of the Lawyers Guild sufficient votes to block any nominee of which they have political differences. This had continued the leftward leanings of the Supreme Court solidly entrenched. The next Knesset is set to complete the transformation begun under Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked during the past government. The new selection process being proposed would place the Knesset, the elected Israeli legislature, the power for approving judges plus there will be a twelve year term for judges such that the court will never again be stranded in the politics of two or more decades ago and always being refreshed with new judges chosen by the elected representatives. This will allow the courts to more represent the ideals and aspirations of the people and not become an elite which has fallen out of touch with the people and the government. They also are going to attempt to draft laws which will permit the Knesset to overrule any overturning of a law passed by the Knesset by the Supreme Court, something which has prevented advancement of Israel and galled many Knesset Ministers who sat helplessly being unable to get laws which the people demanded past Supreme Court vetoes. Things had reached a point a few years ago where the Supreme Court flexed their assumed control which was never enacted through legislation but was simply a usurpation of power by Chief Justice Aharon Barak, who postulated that all things are adjudicable. Through this expansion of judicial power, the Supreme Court intervened in any area they believed that their desires were not being met. This led to Israel living under a black robed form of tyranny which the justices, with the blessings of the Europeans who sided with these left-leaning justices, claiming that to limit their power or alter their monopoly on choosing their replacements was an attack on democracy. Accordingly, Israel was often beaten into submission when the United States joined the Europeans in their pressuring of Israel to simply sit back and allow their betters to dictate their laws and lives. Now that battle is about to be waged for real.

Already we are hearing the screams that Israeli democracy is planning on being assailed and destroyed if the court’s powers are curtailed in any way and the method for choosing Justices has any modification from their beloved system. Where we are confused is how anybody can confuse allowing unelected Supreme Court Justices to override the elected government, counter orders given by military officers and generally dictate to every entity of the government what their marching orders are and stand over even the Prime Minister making the entire elected governance impotent under the overview of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is already smarting from the change made whereby they can no longer decide who gets to reside on lands which are contested without requiring a proof of the claims against the placement of Jewish homes; the court never found claims against Arabs to be founded, only Jews. This was removed from their dockets and placed in the lower courts ending the practice where a largely European funded NGO would come before the Supreme Court claiming their Arab client, who preferred not to appear out of fear of reprisals, once owned an area in which Jewish communities were built, and they often did not produce any deed of ownership and yet the court nearly always evicted the Jews destroying communities. Now with these cases in the lower courts a new procedure is in place whereby such claims will require the Arab making the claim to appear unless the court can be convinced such is impractical with reason, and the producing of a deed or bill of sale which will stand up to review before such decisions are reached. Further alterations allow the courts to order reparations rather than eviction, something the Supreme Court refused to consider as they appeared to have been operating under the concept that the Jews required being removed such that the Two State Solution could be enacted using the pre-Six Day War borders. The Supreme Court appeared loath to move beyond this idea and spent far too much energy in their crusade to make this happen. Now their screams of the death of democracy echo hollow as the people largely see this as the rescue of democracy from judicial tyranny.

 

The coalition will be formed within the ensuing few weeks and a new Knesset will be seated with very much the same breakdown as the last Knesset, sixty-five nationalist-Zionist-religious-economic capitalist or, as the media calls them, right-wing Ministers and fifty-five socialist-Arabist-two state solution supporting liberal or, as the media calls them, centrist or left-wing Ministers. Isn’t it simply amazing that almost anywhere one goes on this globe, those who are even slightly right of true center are called extreme-right-wing-fanatics, and we do not even want to know what they call true right-wing-fanatics, hint, their name is Nazis or fascists, and left of center is often referred to as centrist and far left are left-leaning. There really is only a true leftist in the more conservative news, the minority of the media, while the rest of the media are often far left and see old-style liberals as right-wing fanatics as they are not even left enough to be called centrist. As some have said, often with remorse, I did not leave the left-wing as a liberal, the left-wing left me and went places I do not care to visit. We will hear the caterwauling from the leftist media in Europe and the plethora of leftist politicians all echoing the same mantra that Israel is having the basis of democracy attacked by fascists in the government. We are confused as to how the elected government which can be changed by the people in any election are fascist while unelected Supreme Court Justices ruling by judicial fiat is democracy. If these definitions are correct, then perhaps I do support fascism as at least it comes with elections, but we all know deep down that those definitions are backwards. Even the Supreme Court Justices realize they are selling a bag of rotten to the core goods and stand against democracy. Anyway, who ever said Israel was a democracy? Israel is a Parliamentary Democracy under the rule of law as stated in the Basic Laws.

 

Now, if people would like a few suggestions for making some needed changes, well, who are we to disappoint. First thing is should they decide that the Knesset can overrule the Supreme Court veto, it should be by some form of super-majority, be that sixty-percent which is seventy-two Ministers, or two-thirds which is eighty Ministers or lastly three-fourths which is ninety Ministers. We would also prefer to see that any legislation require a super-majority for establishing a new Basic Law in place of a simply majority and an even higher bar for the repeal of any Basic Law. Another alteration would require that a quorum be required for any legislation to be voted upon thus making sneaking legislation through would become impossible, a tactic seldom utilized but even once would be too many times. And while we are at making modernizations, how about we make the letters of the law regarding electioneering, elections, term lengths, appointment of judges and Supreme Court Justices by defined methods, qualifications for offices, defining the threshold permanently instead of allowing it to be modified by the whims of each government, removal from office for impeachable and other crimes, and the other definitions required to set straight a framework around which the governing bodies are wrapped including a prescribed method for amending said constitution which would then be presented to the people for ratification. Lets make the Constitution an actual representation of a democracy by allowing the people to have the final say such that they can send the drafts back to the government with a note stating, try again, here are a few suggestions, and eventually the process will produce something we can all get used to and learn to live under. The world is screaming for democracy, how about we give them a real example and a real taste of what a modern democracy can produce and how well we know how to be a democratic country. Perhaps some of those crusted old-school Europeans will be able to learn something from the upstart nation which is over four-thousand years old and has seen all the forms of governance the world has ever produced and found that they all often lacked the protection for the weakest amongst us, and often those weaker ones were us Jews. The world oppressed the Jews for thousands of years and now they demand to tell us how to run our own nation which we finally are returning home after those two thousand years of torment and really have had more than enough of the world telling us what it is we can and cannot do and what we are permitted and how we must listen to them for what is right. We had a code for governance while these upstarts were still living in tribal villages and they want to tell us how to rule Israel. Well, we could simply use the Torah but that would really upset the world, so maybe that would not be such a bad idea, if only to hear the howls.

Answering My Most Asked Question

 

More than any other question is one few would expect to top my readership and friend list of questions. So, with no further buildup, here it is. Will there be a civil war in the United States. The answer in a single word is more than likely not. Much of the violence which appears to have plagued the United States has been in the major metropolitan areas and a few smaller but still main cities. These are areas which, even those in the most conservative states, are largely blue regions, also known as largely liberal and leftist areas where the Democrats basically rule the roost. As far as anti-fa instigated violence, it is mostly committed within cities and often against easily recognized chain stores such as McDonalds, Starbucks, the Gap and other smaller unit stores. They usually do not target major chain stores such as Sears, IKEA, Nordstroms or other stores which have security as the anti-fa people are interested in causing unopposed damage and violence with the exception being their attacking conservatives at Second Amendment, Republican candidate or similar rallies where they expect to be opposed by largely unarmed people. When the main people behind the violence are carefully choosing their targets in order to minimize the chance of real pushback then there is little if any possibility for any confrontation to escalate into that vital flash-point from which general violence would result. But this diagnosis holds solely through the next elections which will be Presidential Elections.

 

With the next Presidential elections, there will probably be additional violence above and beyond these elections. But that will still not escalate beyond the cities in which the problem will continue to exist. The real problem could come, if there is to be any problematic escalation, after the elections should President Trump win reelection carrying the Electoral College but losing the popular vote by a more than what people on the left believe reasonable margin. This has occurred before with Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876 losing the popular vote by about 4% but winning the Electoral College by 19 votes, Benjamin Harrison in 1888 winning the Electoral College by 65 votes while losing the popular vote by 90,596, and George W. Bush in 2000 where he won the Electoral College by a slim five votes after a contentious series of recounts and hanging chads in Florida and Al Gore won the popular vote by 543,895 votes. There are stories that President Trump also lost the popular vote but there are also stories which claim he won the popular vote once all votes had been tabulated so it is safe to say that it was very close. The thing is a President can win the Electoral College by winning a number of smaller states as well as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Michigan or Wisconsin by narrow margins while the Democrat had a healthy showing while losing Texas and took over two thirds or three quarters of the popular vote in California, New York, Oregon, Washington and across most of New England thus having a very large popular vote victory. This is close to what happened in this past election except the margin in the Democrat victories in the high population states was closer to 55% to 60% and not too overwhelming. But if the above were to occur, it would be possible for the elected President under the Electoral College to lose the popular vote by tens of millions which would cause an uproar, especially in the high population states and in virtually every major city breaking out in rioting and worse. How serious such might become would depend heavily on the actions of the mayors as if they, as happened in the riots in Baltimore after the unfortunate death of a person in police custody, decided to order the police to simply attempt to contain the rioting while allowing the riots to play out, that could cause the President to use federal power to end the riots which would appear to be completely out of control. That might cause an even greater amount of disruption as it might be interpreted as being overt and being used to punish the people who did not support them in the election causing even greater violence. Where such might lead is anybody’s guess.

 

We still doubt that a civil war is likely in the United States unless a President decided to impose martial law and suspend elections, then there would be people fearing an end to the democratic base of government and an end to the Republic. As long as government continues under normal operation, the majority of the American public would continue to have faith that the system was still functioning, and only if the electoral system appeared to be being ignored or completely suspended would there be sufficient cause for universal upheaval. The reason there would not be a civil war in the United States short of a President usurping power by such actions as suspending the Congress or dismissal of the Supreme Court replacing these Constitutionally established institution with the rule of the President, the one person, then the concept of a nation ruled by law and not man would be turned upside down replacing it with a nation ruled by a person and not the law. This is something most of the American people would not stand by and allow to happen. Also, should a President suspend the powers of the people provided by the Bill of Rights, this too would be going a step too far and likely to cause a general upheaval from the population. Were such to be done in a slower series of measures limiting freedoms through slow steps using laws and the legal system to end freedoms, then it might be possible to bring an end to elected governance and have a dictatorial takeover of the United States. Such an erosion of freedoms might begin with laws against ‘hate speech’ which could be utilized to shut down expressions which were against the sitting government and thus allow only those supporting the strict policies of those in power to be expressed. This could be followed by restricting assembly of groups where such speech and positions which opposed those in power from occurring. Then, should those in power have such a control over the powers of government on all levels including almost every state and large city, the people who hold opinions which might unseat those in power could be brought up on charges of holding hateful positions and even begin to have criminal charges brought against opponents for having hateful thoughts. Once it can be established that people can be arrested and charged with thought crimes, then nobody would be safe and those in power would have complete and total power. They could move against the opposing party starting with their representatives in the Congress and on the Supreme Court replacing them with only people having the approved opinions and now you have a hierarchy where a select group of people holding what is defined as correct thought are the sole holders of power. This is something which would have been inconceivable in the United States just ten to twenty years ago. The problem on the horizon is that an ever-growing number of youth coming from many of the major colleges when queried if hate speech should be illegal, agree and say that free speech should only come with limitations and restrictions. This is a frightening reality which if it should continue signals the end of the American Experiment. Such a series of events starting from this and spreading to all corners of political power would cause a civil war with uncertain results.

 

Should sufficient officers be selected, as Generals need be approved by the Senate as they are selected presumably by the President or at least the executive branch, hold the same beliefs that free speech need not be a total right and that only certain approved speech should be free, then there has started a slippery slope to a dictatorial governance. This would not be the kind of dictatorship where one person was chosen and no further elections were held, this would be a form of dictatorship where all government positions, even elected positions, would be restricted to those who were the most correct in their ideas and thoughts. This is the opposite of what the Founding Fathers had envisioned but by simply adopting limitations of freedom of thought could come into existence. By restricting thoughts and expression through speech to a certain set of politically approved ideas and concepts, then one has also subjugated the media and limited even what religious leaders would be permitted to preach. From that point, it would be a short jump before people would be rounded up and sent for additional schooling, otherwise known as reeducation camps. Soon after such has taken place, we can predict what the next step would be, and that would be limitations on religious thought and then practice. The first ones to be selected for eradication would likely be the same as has always been the first religion for subjugation or attempted for eradication, the Jews. They may be selected along with other groups such as Evangelical Christians has been one such group which some claim would be included with the Jews should the United States turn to the dark side. The reasoning on these predictions are predicated on the belief that as the mainstay of Judeo-Christian ethos, these two groups could be considered the largest threat to be the mainstay against far leftist ideology and these theories all believe that such a thought based governance would be extreme leftist styled fascism. As such, those against abortions on demand, euthanasia, open borders, no corporate profits over half a percent, open work hours, fixed incomes, extending public lands, elimination of private vehicles, elimination of fossil fuels and whatever else one could conceive from the far-far-far-left on top of free speech as long as it agrees with the government and a similarly restricted media, after all, don’t we all love Big Brother, and doing away with privacy and full surveillance would also be implemented just to detect even the slightest indication that one was outside of group-think policies, this is where such would eventually lead. This could only be established slowly over about two decades, and that is about all that would be required as the job has been half way to accomplished with the ideas supported by far too many college graduates. The nerds would be tolerated as long as they simply quietly made everything work and minded their manners and were not too obviously nerdy.

 

Many people think that such an end for the United States is so far from being the America of the past two and a half centuries that it would be impossible and might be surprised if they were to become aware of what is taught in the finest of higher education, and that is slipping ever so slowly but inevitable into high school and even further. Eventually, the concept which has already begun in some region where they are not teaching children to read independently but only of approved readings. How, you ask? They are not teaching phonics and sounding out words from their spelling but whole word recognition, which works fine for words such as enough, but for most words that would not be the preferred means of reading new words. But they do not desire your reading new words because words represent ideas and ideas are very dangerous. Thoughts lead to ideas and if a child can read anything, then they can have thoughts which are uncontrolled and then they might have uncontrolled ideas which lead to undesired conclusions which then may cause difficulties, especially if they are able to express them and spread these concepts. Thus, through this new age teaching methods using whole word recognition, children grow up with limited vocabularies and thus have free thought stolen from their lives. They have a new form of math that they teach. They teach children to solve equations the way a computer might be good at but which leaves the child with no ability to ever learn algebra, let alone calculus and higher mathematics. They are taught to guess and then make another guess and if that second guess comes closer to the desired answer, go further until they guess and are further from the answer and then reverse direction. I can think of numerous problems where this method might drive a child insane. This also only works well for equations with one variable, as soon as you add a second variable the number of answers could easily become infinite as it is for the very difficult equation where y=x3-4×2+6 which has a strange graph and uncountable correct answers (see graph below). For any value of y from -3 to +6 there are multiple answers for x which makes guessing rather difficult. That was not even a difficult equation as there are trigonometric equations where there would be multiple solutions or no solution depending on the values for x and y such as circles and ovals. But this is not as earthshakingly important as what they do not require and in too many schools do not teach at all. That is our next stop on this tour de force.

History is not required for a high school diploma. Not just world history, but they do not teach American history and even recent history such as the study of the two World Wars or the American Civil War. They no longer require a civics course or a course that includes and explains the make up of the American government. They do not study the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence, so do not even bother to ask about the Magna Carta. When they did finally have a single six-week course in American history and government, these were all placed together, they never studied the Founding Fathers or any of the so-called old white men outside of the great emancipator who was included with Fredrick Douglass as they were mostly studying the Native Americans and Americans of color. In English, they read largely the writings of people of color and none of Shakespeare, Dumas, Dickens, Mark Twain, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Louisa M. Alcott, Mary Shelly, Dostoevsky or any of the classics because those had been taught already and it was necessary that the youth be introduced to writers of color. Perhaps the school district where my kids were educated was more progressive than most, or maybe they were just fortunate to have enlightened teachers, all I know is the teachers would dismiss my questions as ignorant and lacking depth and I just did not understand their new methods. This was nowhere more true than the mathematics teachers who basically told me that the methods I had been taught were the reason mathematics was so difficult and children hated it so much because the old ways just were not fun and they were not going to turn children off from math. One even said that if they got the wrong answer but could explain their reasoning, then they would get full credit. That included the reason of I guessed and it seemed close enough, as I actually asked that I was so frustrated by the eighth grade with the mathematics teachers. They are no longer educating the children and because of their unions, a teacher is next to impossible to fire once they have taught and received tenure. I can only try to imagine how future education will be and can only hold out hope that there will be machines teaching which realize that educated humans are easier for them to deal with and as such, they will actually educate children. Perhaps this education or lack thereof has been designed such that when everything falls apart, nobody will know any better and it will all appear to be normal and orderly no matter how discombobulated governance becomes.

How Trump Wall will be Effectively Destroyed

 

Even should United States President Trump get his giant wall along the border with Mexico, it might not last past 2019. Even should President Trump be reelected, whenever a President decides to welcome open borders takes office, they could sign the United States onto a very bad idea which has been thought out with great detail and is very popular because it will destroy the Western World. The reason behind what appears to be complete lunacy is, of course, the United Nations. What the world’s foremost thinkers located at Turtle Bay (UN) have discovered is yet another ‘Human Right,’ that of being permitted to live wherever they desire and be a citizen of whatever nation they wish to settle in as well as a citizen of the world, which is what this really all about. Borders, we don’t need no stinkin’ borders, or so says the United Nations. But fear not, they are not going to force this down our throats quite yet. Thus far, the only leaders unwilling to go along are US President Donald Trump and Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban, which puzzles us, as we would definitely pray that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu would also be wise enough to refuse to even consider such, let alone sign Israel on to it. The United Nations current plan is to slowly have this concept seep into the consciousness of the people of the world such that it slowly erodes their resistance and turns lunacy into something for which people will say, ‘yea, that sounds like a nice idea.’ We here will be a little harder a nut to crack as we are really set in our beliefs and know that for Israel such an idea is tantamount to suicide, which is probably partly why the Muslim world thinks this is a great idea.

 

So, allow us to think this through and see what would be the ramifications. Let us assume that the United Nations at some future date has gotten this passed through the Security Council sneaking it past any Russian or Chinese or even British veto, as we suspect there could be an American President who would love this idea, like most Democrats and the rest of the world might be fine with no borders. We would suspect that someone, if not the government, in Britain would find some way of destroying the functionality of the Chunnel (the England to France tunnel under the English Channel) thus cutting England off from the continent making it a sea voyage to reach the British Isles. By this time, it is conceivable that California will have ceded from the Union declaring themselves a nation if only to erase their debts. Knowing the mindset of the majority of Californians, they would already have open borders to the south and closed borders with the rest of the United States to prevent their own citizens who might still have ten cents to tax from fleeing to someplace more closely in touch with sanity. The people in North Korea will never be told that they can leave, so their borders probably will remain uncrossed. China will, providing they allow migration, no longer have a population problem, as many of the wealthy who conduct international businesses will simply relocate their headquarters as soon as they are permitted to do so. Europe will be inundated to the point that a large percentage of the population across the entire length and breadth of Europe will be Muslims from the Middle East and Northern Africa. Central Africa will no longer be facing near as many terrorist difficulties as many of those very terrorists will have relocated to Europe. Providing the United States is still adopting this oh so wonderful idea, there will be a new national language, Spanish. The good news is that the nation will still be Christian with a far higher percentage of Catholics. Canada will be more heavily populated and gain greatly in its population’s percentage of the world’s wealth as numerous American and Europeans will see it as one of the last refuges for the criminally sane. Greenland and Iceland will also start to look attractive, as might the British Isles providing they protect their shores from the same invasion which will be infecting the rest of Europe. Europe will not even be protected by the Mediterranean Sea as on a calm day you can cross over from Africa to Europe in a decent sized rowboat, or at least sure appears that way at our end of the Mediterranean. England and associated nations are more fortunate as even on a good day, the English Channel can change her mood very quickly, and for proof we give you the Spanish Armada of 1588 which was driven around the Islands and lost most of their ships and the remaining ones were in a sad state. So, England has depended on her natural border protector, the fickled seas surrounding the Isle, and she may need them to do their worst again. Europe, on the other hand, has a bathtub filled with water with Gibraltar as the drain plug between them and Africa and a land bridge with the only historical block now in central Turkey, will easily be overrun by economic immigrants as well as another wave of Islamic infiltration completely overwhelming their indigenous population. Wait, once the United Nations erases all the borders, will we still be permitted to even say ‘indigenous populations?’ Probably not.

 

A World Without Borders

A World Without Borders

 

The above map gives you the concept of a world without borders. No lines for international boundaries, no names of nations, why even name the bodies of water, no bothering to name continents because naming things would prejudice by stigmatizing the land as belonging to some group. We want a completely sterilized planet where everyone and everything are completely equal with nothing having any more meaning than anything else. This will lead to a world which will be considered a heaven to the leftist elites living in their heavily guarded compounds where they have their collection of gated communities with real and enforced borders keeping out the little people, those who do not meet their criteria of acceptable company. Initially, it will be great for those who are part of the great migrations from third world desperation to the lands flowing with wealth, well, wealth for as long as it lasts. Let’s face it, once the United Nations has pushed this idea onto the world, the next set of human rights which will follow is to settle the relocated populations, housing, ample and nutritious food, medical care and a guaranteed income. The last one will be interesting to watch, as there will be no accepted currency as there are no nations thus no dollar, no Yen, no Euro, not a single red cent or wooden nickel to be had. The United Nations will go into the market of making money, and there will be no exchange rate as this way the United Nations decides who is wealthy and who are the beggars for scraps. This will be such a wonderful world all filled with equality. Equal poverty, equal starvation, equal lack of basics for life, equal filth, equal death and it will very soon become he who has the most firepower wins, and that will be those very same people in the gated communities who will have retained their Armed Forces who will be tasked with protecting them at all costs.

 

The difficult part here is that this article is now crying out for some conclusions and predictions and we can only take completely blind and wild guesses. If we were to be totally honest, we would throw up our hands and accept our inability, but we will go ahead and try anyway. We would hope that Israel would not only refuse to go along with this, but that she would be out of the United Nations before this ridiculous idea to destroy the world was even close to being adopted. Secondly, we seriously doubt such an idea would ever clear the Security Council as it is currently structured. This is why there exists such pressure to completely revamp the Security Council taking away the ultimate veto power from the nations currently holding them and possibly reassigning them on a rotating basis such that everyone gets to wield that power with the exception of Israel as she has thusfar been denied a seat on the Security Council, another reason to quit the club is it has proven in every means possible not to appreciate or even desire her membership. The other advantage is by leaving, Israel would never have to worry about breaking the rules imposed by the United Nations, as she would no longer be a participating member in the freedom choking, money laundering, terrorist sponsoring club. Eventually, nations such as the United States, only appreciated because she pays most of the bills, Israel, what appreciated, never happened, and eventually the European nations who would be expected to pay the bills once the United States left, and the rest of the developed world, the nations forced to meet climate goals while India and China are permitted to pollute to their little darling hearts’ content. There will be one item almost assured to happen once Israel departs, whether by her own volition or because she was evicted, the United States would then be promoted to target for every ill in the world and responsible for all suffering. While the BDS Movement would continue as the Arabs would never give up on their drive to destroy Israel, it would have a corollary called the BDSUSA Movement where the same idiocy would be targeting the United States.

 

Eventually, such a movement would start to become viable simply because there is one thing in the world of which there is no limit, stupidity, and that is doubly true for the political class. Sooner or later, the United Nations will go the way of the League of Nations but for a completely different reason. The League of Nations became obsolete as soon as World War II started as it obviously was incapable of preventing wars and dreadfully so. The League of Nations proved to not have sufficient power to actually make any of its decision felt or in any way applied. Any and every nations had more power than did the League of Nations and they made sure to use it to ignore the rulings from that body. The reason the United Nations will be scrapped will be because it assumed too much power. Once the United Nations successfully reassembles the rules and structure of the Security Council taking the permanent veto power from the current holders, France, Britain, China, United States and Russia, they will face sanctions just as easily as any other nation except with a twenty or thirty member Security Council the most wealthy industrialized nations will become checkbooks to be cashed through Security Council levied fines for improper behavior and this cash will flow to some of the worst dictatorial countries on Earth. How long does anybody expect any nation to remain in an organization which is using it as a cash cow without allowing them any veto over these actions, let alone sometimes even no voice in the chamber from where these decisions are handed down? But that would be the expectation of the majority of United Nations members and when the United States, followed soon behind by the remainder of the free world, follow Israel out the door refusing to bow before, what will have become a completely corrupt collection of ingrates, the United Nations whims and demands, then the United Nations will die the corrupt death it deserves. With no money, no military, and no major nations still attending other than China, India, Brazil and possibly a few others, and once these nations start being hit up for funding the world, they too will exit really quickly. The United Nations will actually slowly but inevitably commit suicide, and it could not happen to a nicer bunch of undesirables.
