ABSTRACT
The article presents information about United Nations (UN). It is the assumption that the UN is now a form of limited world government, or can easily be transformed into one. Ironically, this illusion is shared by: both opponents and advocates of the UN. The tragedy is, that the UN is as much in danger of being loved to death by its misguided supporters as it is in danger of being hated to death by its irresponsible antagonists. A vigilant woman reported that the root of all uneasiness about the UN is the well-founded suspicion that the American people will have little or nothing to say about the U.S. participation in the UN, but that they, powerless and unwilling, may be drawn into some sort of world government.
