Bill, that's not a revolution, that's a coup.

The UN wants to lop the head off and take it over.  They would be
horrified if they would have to create an entire governance structure
out of scratch.  They have no interest in actually grubbing around
and doing things like replacing root servers, etc.  They just want to
be the king that tells the rest of the world how to do things.

Google "History of the United Nations" along with "analysis of the
effectiveness of the UN from 1950 to the present" to get an idea of
what the UN likes to do.

If there's not an atomic bomb buried somewhere, the UN isn't going
to be of any use at all.
