The postmodern world is the world we live in, a world where postmodern is the same as being technologically advanced and industrious. It is a world where the ideologies of past politics have shaped and formed a system throughout nations; a system that connects nations. Today's world is filled with nations who hold disputable truths about right and wrong, good and bad, just and unjust, but these truths are unified under the pretext that they all exist to someone or something. Because of their disputability wars have been fought, nations have enacted laws, and the world has sought an international norm for the rights of man. Under the United Nations a justice system does exist that allows for regional governments and independent states to exist within their own framework of justice, but also calls for cooperation and international standards concerning human rights.
[...] The General Assembly is currently unfairly represented in the world's political decision making machine, and it seems only just to equalize the situation even if it means losing leverage in a system that has already been abused by the Security Council itself. I believe that the US government could benefit greatly from spreading the powers of the decision making within the UN to a broader base of representatives. Without key allies like Brazil, Mexico, and Indonesia issues like the war on terrorism, immigration, and international financial security become more difficult to manage. [...]

My own truth changes every day and grows with time, yet I still understand a scientific understanding of life in which Lyotard would call scientific knowledge. [...]
[...] With the proper guidance and adjustments the UN's justice system can be more fair and equal to the world population. Perhaps Marx and Nietzsche would disagree with how the justice system occurred and developed over time, but creating a justice system that they both could agree on could prove to be just as difficult. It is vital to the people of this planet to adopt a justice system that is fair because of the technological advancements that have allowed the postmodern world to communicate so intimately. [...]
[...] There is already a justice system through the United Nations that attempts to globalize a government system that guides and enacts state lawmaking. It is clear to me that the system of the United Nations is not perfect and that failures such as the UN's guidance to the decisions leading up to the war in Iraq was in fault because of the unjust system that is in the United Nations. As Americans it would help to equalize the system in a quickly changing world. [...]
