The Best there is
There’s the UN and the ICC
Bringing the world to justice.
Selective and imperfect
But where is the alternative?
Someone has to hold them to account –
The murderers and poachers,
The polluters and warlords;
All those who practice genocide.
It’s all we’ve got!
The best there is.
There are people who act outside the jurisdiction of governments. They are having a laugh.
They think they can kill with impunity, destroy the planet, slaughter for fun and rip everybody off.
Somewhere there has to be a system to bring them to justice.
We have the International Criminal Court and the United Nations. They are far from perfect but they bring people together and occasionally they have teeth.
They are better than nothing.
