|Nowadays one recognized country has one vote in UN and in few exceptions some coutries have creater power as permanent members of certain councils and/or by having a veto.
Should there be some other way to share the power? Now itīs basically one vote for one nation- like it is in democracies- one vote for one person.
Some things to think about-
* Now the EU is basically an alliance of independent countries but if we continue the path there will be a true European Federation within coming 25-30 years- basically to be honest, if the European Union gets central governement that makes all foreign policy duties- isnīt it fair that at that time EU should have one vote in UN? Like USA-
But of course, UN may not exist at that time, central governement of EU is nothing garanteed etc. Shouldnīt it work that way too?- ex-Yugoslavia area has now 5 basically independent areas, maybe more to come and they all have or are going to have a vote in UN, never to mention the ex-Soviet Empire..
* Economical strenght- should the measure of power be the economical strenght? GNP? Then China will be the no 1 on somewhere between 2015-2030. GNP per capita? Then we have these very small but very wealthy nations.. and Finland would have been in the 3rd or 4th place in early 90īs--
* By population. Nevermind, almost a bad joke. Even now many say that 3rd World countries have too much power. Maybe if they get rid off corrpution. *sigh* *cynical laughing*. But at some level this is not nonsense- someone can say that why so few are allowed to govern so many? Isnīt that the way things naturally work? Must it be so? Is it fair?
* Military strenght. The worst joke. How do you measure it witout a war and how would it differ from a dictatorship- I am the strongest, I hold the power! Not a possible solution.
