Let me start by saying this: Multiculturalism is a failure.
As per my usual layout regarding blogs I shall start with definitions so we can make this clear.
Multiculturalism: the doctrine that several different cultures (rather than one national culture) can coexist peacefully and equitably in a single country (1)
Culture: The customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group; also : the characteristic features of everyday existence (such as diversions or a way of life) shared by people in a place or time (2)
Now that this has been stated let's break this down further.
Let us look at what makes progress, what made each of the major powers throughout history so successful? From Alexander the Great to Ghengis Khan, from the Vikings to the British Empire, what did they have in common that allowed them to progress so well?
The answer is so simple, a goal.
Now you might ask what has having a national goal got to do with multiculturalism. Well its simple, when a nation (in this context) has the same culture they naturally move together towards the same natural goal. Its the mindset you see, the indoctrination if you will that steers society in a direction.
So what do you think happens to a nation that suffers from a next direction steered in too many different directions, the answer is clear, a lack of a collective goal.
This shows when you look at the melting pot that is the UK. Now whilst the UK WAS made up of different regional cultures they still had a national culture that they agreed upon in some way, traditions such as Christmas, Easter, bank holidays, St George's day etc. A majority faith in Christianity meant that certain values were drilled into the population giving it a national set of principles. Now looking at present day we have divisions not just along traditions but also religions and now even regions. Many parts of the capital city have been developed into ghettos and why is this? When over time its been proven that there is such a thing as called 'in-group preference' in laymen's terms, they gravitate towards people of like mind. This therefore proves a fracture develops WITHIN a nation and this is clear when again you look at the melting pot that is London.
Now in Ecology one can learn of something called Invasive Species (3) which in short is when a new species is introduced into an environment for which the natural predators aren't adapted to exploit due to the lack of co-evolutionary arms race. Now the same is true in many ways to cultures. When a culture preaches terms like tolerance (if you don't know my views on that please read my blog on this subject (4)) if another culture is introduced which doesn't have similar social outlooks then it is naturally going to be in an environment where it has no cultural competition, instead it will out breed the other, more tolerant, culture.
So what does this mean for places that preach Multiculturalism? Well simply put the doctrine of Multiculturalism teaches Tolerance of others, so when a culture comes in that doesn't have the same values, say from nations where Islam is practiced or Sub Saharan Africa, those cultures will out breed and overtake the native culture.
At least I am not alone in noticing that Multiculturalism has failed and I shall do a service to them by linking them for your review
To conclude, Multiculturalism says all cultures are equal but if that was the case wouldn't all cultures have progressed to the same level. Is FGM a cultural practice you'd be happy to have in your home? No then they aren't equal
