The one with the bittersweet twist on the United Nations (UN).
Even if the organisation is going through a rather rough patch, there are reasons to keep faith in the service it can bring to humanity.
Let us not despair, but celebrate the fact that the UN keeps our memory alive.
“Tout va très bien, madame la marquise…” – “Everything is very well marquess”, is the title of a funny French song telling the story of spiraling disaster in a noble household…which concludes that even if everything is ruined, the house is on fire and the family bankrupt, things are alright…
It inspired this week’s podcast on the United Nations (UN), which seems to have gone from bad to worse, whilst everyone around pretends it’s still alive and kicking.
This podcast is the first in a series of musings on what the international means for us today.
