I do have a lot of resolutions, but I don’t really make them at New Year’s much.
The U.S. – the idea that the U.S. has introduced and imposed principles of international law, that’s hardly even a joke. The United States has even gone so far as to veto Security Council resolutions calling on all states to observe international law. That was in the 1980s under Reagan.

The problem with New Year’s resolutions – and resolutions to ‘get in better shape’ in general, which are very amorphous – is that people try to adopt too many behavioral changes at once. It doesn’t work. I don’t care if you’re a world-class CEO – you’ll quit.

The problem is that a resolution is generally easier to break than it is to keep.

Cabinet resolutions approving mass releases of terrorists deal a mortal blow to the status of Israel’s judges and courts.

Dieting on New Year’s Day isn’t a good idea as you can’t eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second.
On March 10, 1764, preliminary resolutions passed the House of Commons looking towards the Stamp Act.
