I also had to come tonight to apologize. if you need to go to mexico to finish this process off, then i understand. i was wrong to criticize you for it or even imply that i had some kind of say in it. one of the greatest things about you is that in the end, you always make smart decisions. can’t always say the same for myself. whatever you need to do, i’ll support you.
I have often said that we have two uns; the un that is a secretariat, that implements the mandates handed over to it by the general assembly and the security council, and the un that is the member states who sit in the council, take the decisions, hand over the mandates, or take decisions in the general assembly.
What is politics, after all, but the compulsion to preside over property and make others people's decisions for them? Liberty, the very opposite of ownership and control, cannot, then, result from political action, either at the polls or at the barricades, but rather evolves out of attitude. If it results from anything, it must be levity.
Most everybody had made at least one bad, drunken decision in their lives. Called an ex at two in the morning. Or perhaps has a little too much to drink on a second date and wept inconsolably while revealing how simply damaged one was, while nonetheless retaining an uncommonly large capacity for love. That kind of thing was, while regrettable, at least comprehensible. But waking up with someone generationally inappropriate, like your grandfather's best buddy?
