Reader comment on item: The Clash to End All Clashes?

Submitted by Ariton Marku (United States), Mar 5, 2006 at 13:22

These so-called clashes to end all clashes is a common theme. We live in a time where there are no set borders when it comes to ethnicity and religion. Muslims, Christians, Jewish, and others all live together all over the world. It seems like the biggest problems are in the countries where almost 100% of the population is of one particular groups.

America may have some flaws, but the fact that all the religions can live and work together peacefully is a beautiful thing. America is the place where people can come from all over the world, meet, fall in love, become best friends, or whatever. There is no place in the world that has the same type of blending of cultures than here in America.

Let's stop looking for ways to have clashes of civilizations, and more ways to make other countries similar to the melting pot that America is. Sure there are areas and people that don't share the same ideas as other areas, but as a whole, America works. It will continue working. America's system is so perfectly setup where it makes it possible that people from different cultures do blend in and mesh with the rest of society.
