The fact that dictatorships have an equal vote in the UN GA has allowed a significant bias in GA resolutions. However, dictatorships must be included in the democratic process as this is the only fair way for the UN to make decisions on the affairs of these countries. For example, if Iran did not have a say in the UN, it would be unfair to judge their nuclear activities as this would be like a trial where the defendant could not speak. Dictatorships must be kept in the UN as they are the primary reason that the world needs the UN. The problem is that they are free to propose any antisemitic resolution they wish, and all their dictator allies vote to approve them, however one sided. We need a system where dictatorships are included, but their power is limited. For example, a government that has not been elected within the past 5 years should not be allowed to propose a resolution until it is approved as nondiscriminatory by a UN democratic council. I think a GA resolution should not be put to a GA vote until democratic nations have decided that the resolution is fair and balanced with respect to the problem it addresses.
