[The current Australian government is, in many ways, challenging the role of the United Nations as a body that promotes action by member nations to maintain and extend human rights within those nations' own jurisdiction.] 1 [This challenge has a distinct and dangerous consequence for Australia]2 (quite apart from arguments about its dubious morality) because [the challenge puts Australia in conflict with most other nations of the world over human rights] 3 and [Australian trade and foreign relations are likely to suffer in the long run.]4 By definition, [this long-run result is dangerous.]5 I believe that [the government's role should be to work to avoid danger] 6 and, therefore, I believe [the government's current approach to the UN over human rights is incorrect.]7
