    Really, you couldn't make this stuff up. Only in Europe, where they took away the option of voting for the EU Constitution:

    But I thought multiculturalism was a naturally-occurring and organic phenomenon, the utopian wonderfulness of which was self-evident to any and all, and was set to unfold in a thousand beautiful flowerings once a few narrow-minded white bigots are gotten out of the way.

    What gives?

    On Tuesday, top EU officials are set to launch the Year of Inter- cultural Dialogue at a ceremony in Slovenia, the country which currently holds the EU's six-month rotating presidency.

    European officials have already announced events across the 27- member bloc aimed at getting different national, linguistic, religious and other groups to listen to one another.

    Seven cross-border projects are set to include artistic shows and discussions on hip-hop culture, video workshops for young people, radio broadcasts on migration in European history, and meetings between storytellers, artists, musicians and primary school children....



    OMG! This is terrible!

    People are going to learn about other cultures. It's bad, why?

    As an aside, you do realise that the US is made up of many different cultures. St Patrick's day wasn't celebrated by Germans and Norwegians ya know....

    Nothing wrong with people being interested in other peoples cultures of your own accord. But having the govt TELL you to be interested is.
