Canadian Mark Steyn writes in his article, It’s the Demography, Stupid:
The great thing about multiculturalism is that it doesn’t involve knowing anything about other cultures–the capital of Bhutan, the principal exports of Malawi, who cares? All it requires is feeling good about other cultures. It’s fundamentally a fraud, and I would argue was subliminally accepted on that basis. Most adherents to the idea that all cultures are equal don’t want to live in anything but an advanced Western society.
Are cultures equal or are they not? Can one culture be superior to another or not? The first step would be to ask, what criteria shall we use to compare cultures? Another question would be, Who shall establish what this critieria should be? Or, is it true that all things being relative these kinds of judgements are impossible to make?
What do you think?
I felt like making a list.
