How would they enforce their human rights rules?

The UN was not originally seen as a world government but a forum, basically a place for discussion. Every member of the UN is an individually sovereign country, meaning the UN doesn't have the power to make anyone do anything. The UN NEVER EVER authorizes invasion or military action.
The UN can issue 'requests', but if you ignore them, all it can do is write you an angry letter. That's how it was conceived from the beginning.
