(This is a script I'm working on for a YouTube video that I may record tonight but I thought it would make good discussion)
Last year sometime I made a video about multiculturalism that I regret. At that time I still supported multiculturalism. I said really stupid things in that video, mainly my lame argument that since I enjoy a lot of things that come from other cultures, I must be enjoying the benefits of multiculturalism.
Well, that really was a really lame argument. One doesnít need to live in a multicultural society to enjoy things that originally come from other cultures. I donít have to know anything at all about Chinese culture to enjoy Chinese food. Iím left-handed; I shouldnít feel guilty for using my left hand to eat food at a Middle-Eastern restaurant.
Maybe that sounds selfish because it IS somewhat selfish, but thatís part of human nature. We learn about our own culture first and foremost, and if weíre not going out of our way to offend people, it shouldnít matter.
People who come to LIVE here should try to assimilate into our culture. They should learn about our culture and do their best to fit in.
It shouldnít be the other way around, where they get to keep their culture fully intact and weíre supposed to learn about their culture in order to get along or communicate. I mean, donít get me wrong, I donít think itís a BAD thing to learn about other cultures, but it shouldnít be a requirement unless YOU are the outsider, unless YOU are the one in a foreign country.
Some countries are $#@!holes as far as Iím concerned; propping up cultures from $#@!hole countries just doesnít seem smart to me, and thatís kind of what multiculturalism doesóit props up ALL cultures as being of equal value, and theyíre CLEARLY not all of equal value. Some cultures are downright barbaric and quite frankly I hope they feel unwelcome here. We have high standards here and we shouldnít set them lower to accommodate cultures from $#@!hole countries.
If you want the values from the country you came from and donít want to learn ours, stay in your country, donít come here unless youíre just visiting. If you live here and you want values that other countries have, move to one of those countries.
Iím glad that I live somewhere that I mostly have freedom of speech. Europe seems to be clamping down on that more and more and Iím really glad Iím not there. Itís not that I want to say terrible things, I donít, but Iíd like the FREEDOM to be able to.
Racist speech can land you in jail in parts of Europe, merely offending people can result in fines, I donít doubt for a moment that blasphemy will eventually be something you can get arrested for, particularly with all the Muslims pouring into European countries who get mortally offended if you merely mention Islam without praising it. But I digress.
Iím FOR a melting pot, Iím against multiculturalism.
