No you missed the point you said whats wrong with worry dolls, that was it, they force kids to keep secrets, by the use of them.

I would suspect that what you will discover is that almost every nation has become what it is today through multi-culturalism.

Not at all, those cultures were imposed by conquest and became the dominant and presiding cultures. They came down hard on division. That's why, on this island , we are a proud mongrel race who have happily absorbed numerous newcomers, in large numbers, into our culture. The British Jews are an example of the most recent success in this respect. They arrived in large numbers, but within a couple of generations have faded into the fabric of our society, to the extent that their religious numbers have fallen dramatically, through inter-marriage.

On the other hand, our aristocracy is still basically Norman.

These are the benefits of multi-racialism, which I applaud.
Multi-culturism could well see the end of England through division.

Sad but true, unless we stop sleep-walking ihto oblivion, fast.

I think you are splitting hairs on this, if you were arguing about the inability of nations to ensure assimilation of immigrants I would agree with you whole heartedly it is a problem all over the world however to argue against multi-culturalism in a world is built on the very process of multi-culturalism is quite frankly silly.

Our religions, architecture, laws, government and even our individual traits and names all indicate that the world is one huge melting pot that can't be undone.

Monty - To quote you, indeed you are one being silly and splitting hairs, but I will allow you the benefit of a little ignorance rather than rudeness. You are contradicting yourself. Multi-culturism defeats the great melting pot, of which I am in favour.
The melting pot, like all assimilation and integration, is based on multi- racialism, the acceptance of all within a culture.

Multi-culturism seeks to maintain seperate communities within a country's borders. In today's world, it pushes them further and further apart, creates a struggle for power, and results in calls for seperate development within borders.

Currently, in England, we face the threat of the division into regions based on multi-culturism, including the imposition of Sharia law. This matters are the aim and ambitions of those who do not wish to integrate, but re-create the societies of their country of origin in their host countries.

If you want the great melting pot - multi-racism is the way. Kick multi-culturism into touch.

I am sorry but it is impossible to mix races without mixing cultures, you can argue until you are blue in the face but its simply not possible because it is human nature to adopt things that like whether it be a religion or the design for a clothes peg but I guess that ignorance is not solely the domain of the Antipodes.

As far as the implementation of Sharia law in parts of Britain well no offense but you can hardly blame Muslims for the weakness of your own government hell if all I had to do to get my way was complain I would own New Zealand by now.

Anyway I guess this is the start of another pedantic argument.

In my experience here in Australia, Multi culturalism as a Government policy is a complete flop. It reminds me of a person who once said to me, "You can't legislate for common sense, it just doesn't work that way". I find that multi culturalism is similar, it must be allowed to run it's course and will only be a success where and when there is complete acceptance of each other.

When I was a kid in the 50s I can remember the underlying suspicion of Italians (Wogs), because they banded together and lived in ethnic isolation. Now, no one raises an eyebrow if a person gives an Italian name. I certainly don't, my daughter is now Katherine Marano and the Missus and I can't wait for the next Christmas "do" at the inlaws place, (we rotate). Yep, the Italian community is very close, and they stick together socially, but they leave us in no doubt whatsoever, that we are "Family" also and they go right out of their way to make you aware of it. (Embarrassingly so at times)

But this has been bought about by natural integration, not legislation.

So I still say that Multi culturalism is a complete waste of time and money as far as government policy is concerned.

I agree it cant be legislated it occurs naturally over time, it is just human nature to adopt new and improved things in order to develop distinct hybrids which we then claim as "our own unique culture"

Not at all; You can keep your pedantic arguments to your self. You are wasting my time. You are talking nonsense , lost without your links. Reality will catch up with you soon enough.
