    Most of the world's big institutions are kafkaedque (Orwelling, Randian, take your pic) enough to turn most stomaches. That includes most governments but international institutions (UN, EU, Arab League...Socialist International) are the worst. Out of this sorry bunch NAM is competing for the coveted Crown of Farce. Take a look the the list of "taskforces" or NAM is structured like an organization that exists to further, peace, human rights & democracy while in fact being a support group for warmongering, oppressive despots. It's so blatant and ugly I want to dig up George Orwell just to make ups some words to describe it. Farcical doesn't cut it. It's like some sort of megalomaniac industry organization for the Really Toxic Chemicals industry and its giving away awards: for Humanitarian of the Year. Criticism, Apologetics, any discussion at all is pointless. You're trying to argue with a boy who is claiming to be a 1200 year old pidgin. What's the point Ban?
