The US and the UN in the 21st Century
Since Franklin D. Roosevelt first coined the term United Nations during World War II, the U.N. has brought together the world for the purposes of promoting international diplomacy through the recognition of inalienable human rights, the denial of war as a method of statecraft, and the advocacy of free trade and national self-determination. Perhaps no one understands these principles and how they relate to Americas value system better than Gillian Sorensen, current United Nations Foundation senior adviser and national advocate. Join her as she speaks about the complex relationship between the U.S. and the U.N., explores why our country is valuable to the organization, and answers questions about how black helicopters will soon descend from the heavens to force us all into socialist one-world Obamacare Muslim socialism. (Welcome to OC, Gillian!)
