Essay 1: The UN A More Perfect Union?
Considering the readings, video presentations, and your own research, draft a quality 57-page research paper on the role, legitimacy, and authority of the UN according to the following prompts, answering in a separate or integrated manner as you wish:
What is the relationship of the UN to the current international system of states? Considering the reasons for the creation of the UN after WWII, does it seem driven by political necessity or political utility? In plainer English, do states need the UN more than the UN needs the states? Or do states both large and small find the UN a useful tool for improving their relative power and legitimacy vis-à-vis other states and global institutions? Is there some position in-between?
Identify at least 3reasons that states might defend the intrinsic legitimacy of the UN as a governing authority. In reverse, identify at least 3reasons that states might criticize its legitimacy and authority. In short, make an argument for the limits and possibilities of the UN as a legitimate governing authority in a world of sovereign states.
Using biblical and extra-biblical sources (The Bible, commentaries, teachings, other writings, etc.) to inform your own reasoning, comment on the compatibility of a Christian Worldview with the idea of World Government. [Attention: The Instructor does not view the question as rhetorical, nor the answer self-evident. So, reason carefully.] For example, if the logic of collective action under the Articles of Confederationthe logic of state sovereigntyfailed to secure American liberties as well as the more perfect union, the new Constitution established by the Framers in 1787 to replace it, effectively requiring states to cede sovereignty to a larger collective authority, why would the same logic of collective action not justify the UN as a more perfect union to replace an anarchic system of sovereign states putting the world at risk in a nuclear age?
