"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Lord Acton
Allow me to summarize the message of outgoing UN General Secratary Kofi Annan’s speech to the General Assembly yesterday (HT: International Civic Engagement):
“The United Nations is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to utopia but through it.”
You can compare the text of Annan’s speech to see if I’ve gotten it right, and then contrast my summary with another source.
