Fear brings out the best in some people and the worst in others. It’s a test of character, for individuals and nations.

When we say Church of All Nations, it’s a vision given to me, that the church will touch all the world.

Another cause of change, one less noticeable but fundamental, is the modern growth of population closely connected with scientific and medical discoveries. It is interesting that the United Nations has set up a special Commission to study this question.

All in all, the League of Nations is not inevitably bound, as some maintain from time to time, to degenerate into an impotent appendage of first one, then another of the competing great powers.

I do think that Japan will be one of the nations that have equality, and that, too, will serve as an example for other Asian nations.
Christ had given the apostles a world-wide commission, embracing all the nations; but intellectually they did not understand what He meant. They found that out as they followed the impulse of the Spirit.

The United Nations has a lot of capacity on the ground.
Bosnia is a complicated country: three religions, three nations and those ‘others’. Nationalism is strong in all three nations; in two of them there are a lot of racism, chauvinism, separatism; and now we are supposed to make a state out of that.
And yet, there are still people in American politics who, for some reason, cling to this belief that America is better off adopting the economic policies of nations whose people who immigrate here from there.

In 2002 and 2003, the Bush administration decided against bombing Zarqawi’s camp in northern Iraq because it might derail plans to depose Saddam Hussein.

The simple truth is, the short-term solution is for the FDA to allow more importation of safe vaccines from other nations. But the long-term solution is to get more vaccine production within the U.S.
I think my form dipped after the Six Nations in 2007, from the World Cup onwards.
It’s now our responsibility to prove to ourselves, to other nations, and especially to our children and our grandchildren, that politics is full of fun; politics has some wisdom. Politics is freedom.
If China stood on an equal basis with other nations, she could compete freely with them in the economic field and be able to hold her own without failure. But as soon as foreign nations use political power as a shield for their economic designs, then China is at a loss how to resist or to compete successfully with them.
Both peoples, both nations, deserve a nation-state of their own. Palestinians, if they wish so, will go to the Palestinian state; Jews, if they so wish, can go to the Jewish state. And we’ll have to have security and demilitarization agreements between us.
The United Nations is an indispensable but deeply flawed organization. It is valuable to the United States, and the United States is invaluable to it. We need to reform it.

As nations we should also commit afresh to righting past wrongs. In Australia we began this recently with the first Australians – the oldest continuing culture in human history.

The U.N. acts as the world’s conscience, and over eighty-five percent of the work that is done by the United Nations is in the social, economic, educational and cultural fields.

I don’t see why, if you look at how the Australian culture and psyche is, that we can’t be amongst the most generous, from the grassroots up, nations in the world.
There’s a lot of exaggerated talk about CAFTA, but it’s actually a fairly routine trade agreement. Although it involves fairly small nations, they’re still more important trade partners than places like Australia or many other larger nations.

Maybe we ought to consider a Golden Rule in foreign policy: Don’t do to other nations what we don’t want happening to us. We endlessly bomb these countries and then we wonder why they get upset with us?
