The delusion of multiculturalism

Reader comment on item: How Terrorism Harms Radical Islam

Submitted by martin kessler (United States), Jan 10, 2015 at 14:38

My take on the violent Islamic terrorist problem in France is not unusual and not especially difficult to comprehend. It had to come sooner or later. It is a problem that has finally percolated to become the crises of the moment. It is a clear parallel equal to that which that the United States has been experiencing having its origin in the emancipation of the Blacks and percolating several years later to the Brown v The Board of Education Supreme Court decision in 1954, namely, a decision that social equality can be a correction for legal inequality only to find but few ears later the eruption of race riots. What appears on the surface to an detached,objective viewer as discrimination of Blacks in the United States -- or Muslims in France--or any other European country which has had an influx of an alien demography that pollutes the social fabric of the dominate culture -- is in reality misunderstood or mistaken.

What looks like discrimination by the intellectual elite and the political powers of the nation as something to be legally banned and morally deplored by men of good will is but a surface reflection of the underlying impossibility of social assimilation --for whatever reason --race, culture, religion, etc. Without the possibility of eventual assimilation--for whatever reason --race, culture, religion. etc.,--- conflict will be a continual undercurrent to the social dynamics of interpersonal relations only to be a burden to all classes of society appearing as an incurable sickness and unending conflict. Think Arabs and Israelis. If the retention of one's identity overrides any other demographic group's objective the only natural solution that Social Pathologists can prescribe as a cure is Nationalization or physical Separation.
