What are the effects, then, which the United Nations wishes to produce and plans to produce by changing its structure? The United Nations seeks to render all human beings equal and alike in three fundamental regards: each and every person alive will partake of a decent minimum of well-being, justice, and educative experience. This imperative goal is to be accomplished at all reasonable speed.
At the same time, this imperative goal must be achieved in such a way that its continual achievement may be assured indefinitely into the future: that is, future fulfillment must not be curtailed and must be planned as an essential part of the task of present fulfillment. The United Nations must not mortgage the generations of humanity to come.
Moreover, the imperative goal must be accomplished with the least resort to such means as violence, bribery, deprivations, punishments, trickery, and lies.
Beyond the decent minimums as the paramount goal of the United Nations stand the goal of higher, even the highest, levels of human achievement, such as the fine arts and the sciences. These have already achieved world dissemination, but on an unjustly unequal level of opportunity to achieve them in and among nations. Once the basic goal of the decent minimums has been guaranteed and is in immediate prospect of fulfillment, the second set of world goals can be sought.
