Non-assimilation in general.

Reader comment on item: Lodi's Pakistani Community

Submitted by Charles Griffith (United States), Dec 17, 2007 at 11:06

Someone very wise long ago said that "You cannot legislate social change". No matter what the context of the original statement, it has many, many applications. If, then, social changes must come from within a culture, we outside that culture are spinning our wheels and wringing our hands unproductively. Any attempt to protect America from subversion is going to have to be prepared for howls of protest from those perceiving this to be "descrimination" or "disrespect". Muslims in America have brought this tension on themselves. Their whining and finger pointing should be directed to their very own prejudices...not those of non-Muslims. This no-brainer is not sufficiently broadcast.

We must wrench ourselves away from our smothering political correctness. I wish us luck.
