'If we had had this Charter a few years ago-and above all, the will to use it- millions now dead would be alive. If we should falter in the future in our will to use it, millions now living will surely die.' (Truman) This quotation shows the ambition the Charter has and the hope its conceivers had for it to be respected and applied... Since it has come into being it has remained a central plank of international order. In this essay, we will try to answer why it has done so, even though it was formulated in wartime and by only a few of the victorious powers. We will see that there are many reasons for this.
