Proposals for Reform of the United Nations: Are they sufficiently radical?

In the blog “Proposal for a Radical Reform of the United Nations”, it is asserted that “As it is structured now, the United Nations is controlled by national governments, with their military institutions and military budgets. Over the course of history, national governments have come to monopolize war. As a result, if we are to make the transition from a culture of war to a culture of peace, we need a radical reform of the United Nations. Instead of being controlled by the Member States, it should be controlled by “We the Peoples,” the words that begin its Charter.”
