Q. The United Nations has no vested interest in the status quo. It seeks a more secure world, a better world, a world of progress for all peoples.


Quotation / Citation

It is worthy of emphasis that the United Nations exists not merely to preserve the peace but also to make change – even radical change – possible without violent upheaval. The United Nations has no vested interest in the status quo. It seeks a more secure world, a better world, a world of progress for all peoples.

In the dynamic world society which is the objective of the United Nations, all peoples must have equality and equal rights. 

BUNCHE, Ralph J., Under-Secretary-General for the United Nations. "Some Reflections on Peace in Our Time," Nobel Lecture, 11 December 1950, Oslo.
