The secret relationship between enterprise architecture and the United Nations

Have you ever figured out that both enterprise architecture and the United Nations has awful lot in common? Decisions are never made on fact and perception is more important than reality. An enterprise architect would have seen the collapse of Wall Street. Likewise, The United Nations saw the unravelling of Darfur yet in both cases everyone refused to take action.

So why do both enterprise architecture teams and the United Nations fail to come to any Resolution? If you were to take a survey and ask: Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world? you would be guaranteed a failure...

In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant.
In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant.
In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant.
In China and India they didn't know what "opinion" meant.
In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant.
In South America they didn't know what "please" meant.
And in the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant
