"Diversity" destroys diversity

From the superlative Brett Stevens.
When it comes to holidays, in a country where people are Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Zoroastrian and Shinto, there are no holidays in common. As a result, it will be unfair to impose a single set of holidays. My prediction is that in ten years, schools will give students a dozen “floating” absence days that they can take for any reason in order to cover the religious holidays of a dozen faiths.

Welcome to the cultural idea of liberalism, which is destruction of the majority and its culture. By importing many different types of people, it becomes “safe” only to celebrate that which everyone shares, which is nothing. Thus everyone becomes an exception and everything becomes a personal choice. This is the method of liberalism: create an ideological group and expand it to absorb others.

This contrasts the conservative idea of culture, which is to pick people by what they share and then select for the best of that culture, so that culture and people alike advance, with natural selection and conscious choice of “better” balancing each other. That is how you get a rising civilization: you find a natural majority and enhance it.

When I write that “diversity” does not work, what I mean is that it is bad policy. It is not the fault of Muslims, Jews or Christians that they do not integrate. It is the fault of the policy of diversity itself, which insists you can combine many different things without destroying them. You cannot, but then again, the goal behind diversity has always been destruction — destruction of the natural majority, replacement of culture with ideology, and creation of a permanent liberal State.
Amerika, where culture goes to die.

Canada is going in the other direction: the premise is that, for example, the Hindus can take advantage of the public medical care, cheap land, and transparent governance to create the idealized Hindu culture, just without the filth, corruption and superstition of the Indian homeland. So far, most Canadians appear happy to participate in their own displacement. Presumably, the new Canadians feel enamored enough of their homeland to pay their taxes and not just regard it as a place to crash and launder money from the homeland.

Isn't sharing holidays as unwholesome as sharing toothbrushes?

We already have plenty of "diversity" -- so beloved of liberals -- in this country: Irish, Slovaks, Chinese, etc.
How much more "diversity" do we need?
The liberal mind is filled with categorical imperatives, so you can never have enough diversity. If this means importing equatorial Africans and sticking them in Portland, Maine, where they are prone to upper respiratory infections and vitamin D deficiency, then that's what you do.

That's very true, and it liiustrates one of the scariest things about liberalism; unlike Communism, or fascism, there is no desired end state. What is desired is constant movement left, "progress" toward the left, throughout eternity. This is why liberals will keep pushing things until either they are stopped by superior force and will, or the society that they are embedded in collapses, destroying them as well. Those who make analogies between liberalism and cancer aren't seeing nothing...

Not any longer. It's increasingly where foreign cultures are asked to preserve themselves as some kind of Disneyland/DiversityDay exhibit booth for libs raised on National Geographic to look at. The number one reason cited: think of all the great restaurants.

As one wag noted, it recalls nothing so much as the biblical selling of one's birthright for a bowl of stew.
