There has been considerable discussion of “global consciousness” in recent years. It is generally viewed as a positive goal, one that is associated with the promotion of universal brotherhood, love, and solidarity among nations.Many people from around the world believe that the best way to achieve this goal is to expand the powers of the United Nations to investigate human rights violations, control international arms trade, and monitor elections in countries where there are reports of voting fraud.Consider the probable consequences, both good and bad, in this country and internationally,of such an expansion of UN powers. Consider, too, relevant obligations and moral ideals and decide whether the expansion of powers would be ethical.
