The UN Is Getting Strangely Apocalyptic
I honestly thought this was satire when I first came across it. Nope, its real, and its the ceiling of the U.N. General Assembly in Geneva.
Does anyone else notice the striking similarity to the classic vision of the depths of hell? I’m no apocalypticist, nor do I prescribe to the classic imagery, but my first impression was rather Dante-esque. And for obvious reasons, I don’t care to have reason to further associate government with evil, even if it is more colorful.
And one more thing, it cost $23 million. Sounds like government to me. Allegedly a good portion of that came from international aid budgets, obviously instead of going to actual aid. However, that notion is disputed, of course, over political lines.
