    Prime Minister in the UK being blunt and telling it like it is.............angered the hell out of some Muslim groups too.

    BBC News - State multiculturalism has failed, says David Cameron

    I think it very resonable for political scientists to start looking at ways of finding places that all the people obsessed with re-inventing the world by embracing multiculturalism can live together in their own utopia. Meanwhile, the rest of the people on the planet with their feet on the ground can live happily ever after.

    Let the Progressives knock themselves out experimenting all they want and we'll sit back and see how it goes..............but meanwhile, America needs to take a good hard look at the level of fubar in EU states and decide not to go down the road of going in the shitter.

    Liberals should be allowed complete freedom of action in a place of the Conservatives choosing.

    Okay, so get to your point. Are you suggesting that the USA should stop allowing immigration? Should the government start setting standards of culture and demand that the people live up to them? Should Congress legislate mandatory apple pie dessert every Sunday dinner? Should we outlaw all non-patriotic thinking, speech, and actions?

    Liberal stuff always sounds awesome............I must admit that. But their social policies put into action have been nothing short of a fcukking disater for the masses. The politics of "good intentions" is always embraced by folks who are either miserable and jealous or just plain idealistic. Results are unimportant.

    My face almost fell off back 2 years ago when I read a story in the UK of Muslim prisoners who complained about the toilets in this particular jail that happened to face Mecca, thus, when a Muslim prisoner was taking a dump, it violated their religion. So what did the UK do? They spent 2 million dollars and re-located the toilets:eek::eek:

    The Shria Law BS you're seeing more and more in this country is soon going to be tossed in the shitter talking about shitters. Aint going to be happening here.

    One society/People can only have one culture.

    That's why the emergence of any new subculture always leads to the destruction of the society.


    When Disco and the Hippie cultures came into being, entire cities fell into chaos. In the 80s and 90s, the goth subculture surrounding the Batcave nearly ended the entire British system.

    That sounds like conservative ideals. Espoused by people who are miserable because they blame the government for their own difficulties (complaints about taxes) and jealous of how others benefit from some kind of government program, or are just plain idealistic (Everything will be great without taxes! Everything will be great with Christian legislation!) The results are unimportant to them.

    The egregiousness of this aside, what do you suggest? Legislating against any kind of "subgroup" and mandating patriotic thinking and action?

    I agree, it has failed.

    The cultures that came into the UK had no intention of assimilating into the culture and becoming one with it.

    They are trying their own version of separate but equal.

    America is an artificial construction that violates the laws of human nature by imagining too diverse, large, and geographically separated a population can ever truly be one People.

    The problem with the Nation-State is that it is ludicrous. Why should I be expected to care more about people and events thousands of miles away more than i do about events hundreds of miles way- because of some invisible line in the sand?
