The President is correct. We do pay too high a percentage to the United Nations. Especially when compared to China. But I would argue this is an imperialism fee. China invests in other countries largely through real estate investment.

The US uses its military and financial influence to manipulate situations in sovereign lands. We end having to bribe governments for support. They don't like us but they like our money.

It's analogous to a prostitute and her Johns. Other countries will begrudgingly take our money, but there's an unspoken no kissing policy.

So China would be played by Richard Gere and the US by Larry Flynt?

It's supposed to be a forum for us to impose our will on the rest of the world. But they don't really want to play. So we have to do it on the down low and pay individually to impose our will.

I agree that's part of it... But if it's not us imposing our will, the possible alternative of someone taking our place is not attractive either. We would still need to maintain dominance, only through a strong economic and military defense

What does a corporation with superior financial assets do to lesser corporations that pose a potential risk?

Yes, we know best how to run the planet. But I don't know that the UN is effective at enabling us to do that. Its just a veneer of civility and cooperation, its not effective.

So why bother? Sure, lots of fun and photo ops, lots of ways for POTUS to show our incredible superiority for all to admire. But isn't that really about all that comes of it?
