I'm from Canada where multiculturalism has really been pushed for the last 40 years. It works to a great degree because you have some of the biggest enemies from different parts of the world mixing with one another and here they get along fine, most of them leaving their gripes behind. Opportunities for cuisine from all over the over the world are right in your face.
The only downside I heard mentioned by some writers is that we are indeed a cultural mosaic but we should note while the pieces of rock and glass in a mosaic are quite close and make a pretty image, they never really touch one another. In many ways we have lost the identity of what a real Canadian is other than a Frenchman spitting on a stove in his log cabin boiling maple syrup or a mountie dressed in a red tunic mainly used for parades and funerals, kissing his horse and singing, "Rose Marie".

I love different cultures but I love them in their own countries, where I can go and experience them if I wish to! Australia's happy go lucky way of life will change if we continue to encourage multiculturalism! Many cultures do integrate well into mainstream Australia, but the small percentage that don't are the ones that will change our great nation for the worse! Our christian values are what make our country so great, so why introduce cultures that believe in the complete opposite? Trouble??
Multiculturalism doesn't work, no matter what ethnic group are involved; it's not the fault of the ethnic groups but multiculturalism that multiculturalism doesn't work.
Therefore, the Nanny/Police State (1971 ( ****en Trudeau) is gonna force it on you, because many people are still resisting it, like they resist other forms of state control that are based in unrealistic suppositions
Multiculturalism, or multi-ethnic-ism, is an excuse for importing people from other nations.
Industry loves it because it gives them cheap labor and new customers to buy all the products required to start up homes. Also, these people have no cultural prohibitions on buying certain things that were previously unsalable.
Liberal politicians love it because it gives them an easy-to-pander-to, instant voting base.
Under confident, depressed, underachieving, disillusioned, self-pitying, low-self-esteem individuals love it because it gives them a way to take revenge on the demographic majority, who are perceived as thriving in a situation which these under confident people are not thriving in.
This is the intersection of groups that want multiculturalism.
To everyone else, especially those who read history, it makes sense to have a nation of people pulling in roughly the same direction:
IQ, ability and wealth.
That's how you get a stable society. People who are upset with our current society, or upset at themselves, or simply jockeying for power, are willing to sacrifice a stable society for their own needs.
That is why multiculturalism is the new taboo, and criticism of it is "bad" in the same way Satan, Stalin and nerve gas are "bad."
Of course, history shows us that we're not the first civilization to go this way. The Greeks observed how once a nation became a trading mecca and had naval power, it inevitably began to include a motley group, and eventually collapsed.
History does repeat its self ........even in Canada.
Do `Canadians` even care ......majority too ****en shallow .
