Here is a short video on the failure of multiculturalism in the West.
It is not just a rant. A handful of precise opinions are voiced, and the underlying research is cited for those who wish to follow up
Deja vu is the feeling I got watching it, because … in 1990 I published The Trouble With Canada (re-published in updated form, as The Trouble With Canada … Still! in 2010), in which I argued that the multicultural legislation passed in Canada in 1988 was a mistake because it meant immigrants would no longer be expected to assimilate to Canada’s unifying deep culture, and the result would be the gradual formation of mini-nations with in the larger nation-state, because a Multicultural policy, as one critic so aptly put it, “condemns immigrants to house-arrest in their own skins.”
Canada’s very long experience with Quebec separatism was sufficient warrant for this opinion. I argued that Quebec and the Rest of Canada (ROC) are now more than ever the “Two Solitudes” about which we had been warned as long ago as 1945 by the novelist Hugh MacLennan of McGill University in a bestselling novel of that very name.
In short, the Quebec experience, which has been a consistent threat to Canadian unity ever since Confederation in 1867, has been, and remains Canada’s first failure with the multicultural experiment.
We have learned nothing since.
When will the West wake up, shake off its self-loathing, revive its confidence in the best of the West, so to speak, and once again undertake to re-learn, defend, propagate, and celebrate the greatest civilization of modernity?
