Maybe we should get with the program?

Why not? What has brought us to think like this? Multiculturalism is one of those theories that sounds nice -on paper (to some) but it just doesn't work. Worst of all its a hideous, heavy handed attempt at social engineering.
homogeneous countries have a tendency to be democratic, and have higher levels of trust, multiculturalism is usually equated with empire. Basically between different groups you have high levels of mistrust and they are usually held together with strong central authority. For an example, take a look at what a little Freedumb has done in Iraq.
Further, nearly all great societies are homgenus =multiculturalism doesn't produce great artists, and art- its more likely to stifle it. -think of all the great artistic periods in history - all of them came from small, obscure ' cities that were largely homogeneous - Athens, Florence, backwater Elizabethan england.. what do we remember of Darious multicultrual Persia? Or Ottoman Empire?
Its no accident that nearly every law restricting free expression and that the stifling atmosphere created on campuses all centered around racial sensitivity.
its no accident that the increasingly undemocratic and authoriatarian EU deliberates attempts what can only be called race replacement in European countries. - if Sweden is no longer full of Swedes they won't object to the elimination of country of Sweden. Fragmented Future
Multiculturalism doesn’t make vibrant communities but defensive ones.
by Steve Sailer
In the presence of [ethnic] diversity, we hunker down. We act like turtles. The effect of diversity is worse than had been imagined.
And it’s not just that we don’t trust people who are not like us. In diverse communities, we don’t trust people who do look like us.
—Harvard professor Robert D. Putnam
It was one of the more irony-laden incidents in the history of celebrity social scientists. While in Sweden to receive a $50,000 academic prize as political science professor of the year, Harvard’s Robert D. Putnam, a former Carter administration official who made his reputation writing about the decline of social trust in America in his bestseller Bowling Alone, confessed to Financial Times columnist John Lloyd that his latest research discovery—that ethnic diversity decreases trust and co-operation in communities—was so explosive that for the last half decade he hadn’t dared announce it “until he could develop proposals to compensate for the negative effects of diversity, saying it ‘would have been irresponsible to publish without that.’”
This is a truth people just don't want to hear - its one the good liberal professor didn't want to come to......
personally I prefer a world there there's difference - what so called multiculturalism is doing is trying to remove national differences. ...everyone wears gap and banks at HBSC, and reads from the same history book (last example taken from a proposal currently being kicked around the EU, requiring students in all member countries to have the same textbooks
I am not for preserving everything as is there is always natural change but opening up our borders and trying
to be more diverse for idealogical reasons is patent insanity.
