Abstract

The United Nations Reform Act of 2005 articulates a response by laissez-faire conservatives to the hemorrhaging costs of supporting U.N. developmental programs outside the boundaries of U.S. audits. Laissez-faire conservatism, also referred to as classical liberalism, has traditionally sought freedom from large governmental mechanisms. In the 21st century, this mechanism is the U.N. with its peripheral vision continually dilated in the presence of non-western development. Stated concisely, this thesis demonstrates that the theories on the modern welfare state and its discontents by Friedrich Hayek and Robert Nozick have revitalized and continue to inform the 21st century laissez-faire conservative in maintaining global order.
