The United Nations has earned notoriety as one of the most corrupt organizations in the world. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has allegedly squandered billions of taxpayer-funded dues. Nonetheless, the UN intends to celebrate 'Anti-Corruption Day' on December 9.
The UN News Center reports that, "Corruption is a barrier to achieving universally accepted development goals, Ban Ki-moon said today, calling on Governments, the private sector and civil society to take a collective stand against a social, political and economic disease affecting all countries."
Mr. Ban is quoted as saying that, "To achieve an equitable, inclusive and more prosperous future for all, we must foster a culture of integrity, transparency, accountability and good governance."
According to the UN News Center, "He stressed that corruption prevents achievement of the global anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals () and needs to be taken into account in defining and implementing a robust post-2015 development agenda."
Mr. Ban emphasized that economies that refuse to 'Share the Wealth' are breaching "human rights," which undermines his global socialist objectives.
