On Mount Olympus
In classical Greek tragedy, there are two levels of action. One is the world of ordinary mortals. The other is the world of the immortal gods on Mount Olympus, omnipotent but fickle.
The Greek gods compete, quarrel and follow their whims, interfering with impunity in the lives of ordinary mortals.
International organisations are like all other institutions, made up of fallible men and women. However committed these are, when they take up the responsibility to govern they must not be permitted to assume the posture and immunity of the Olympian gods.
