"Dr. Byron Roth, Professor Emeritus of psychology at Dowling College on Long Island, has written an important book on the damage that has been done to the United States and Europe by the large scale immigration of non-European peoples that has taken place in recent decades.
Roth begins The Perils of Diversity by documenting how elite opinion-makers in academia and the mainstream media almost all assume that the peoples of all races are similar, and therefore that they can all be accommodated in the United States and Europe. The principal “debate” is between those who advocate assimilation and those who advocate multiculturalism. While acknowledging that different racial groups can sometimes be in conflict, assimilationists argue that these ethnic problems can be solved through “the magic of assimilation,” in which all races and religions are gradually transformed into Americans or Europeans. The multiculturalists argue that we should let the immigrants keep their culture, beliefs, and practices; this can be accomplished, they say, peacefully, and different communities can live in social harmony. They blame the intolerant attitudes of the host populations in the United States and Europe for the discord that is frequently present: It is the fault of the indigenous American and European peoples, who do not do enough to accommodate immigrants.
Roth argues that both the assimilationists and the multiculturalists fail to understand human nature.
Assimilationists believe that  all races have the intelligence and values required to maintain Western civilization, while multiculturalists believe that all races and cultures can live together in social harmony. These beliefs are, Roth argues, seriously incorrect in the light of historical experience and scientific evidence."

Leftists has a world view - and reality must obey.

And what term does Dr Roth apply to those who know full well that 'assimilation' and 'multiculturalism' are bogus concepts and instead use them to undermine, negate, destroy and, ultimately, refashion Western countries and civilisation to their own future world view? For, if Roth begins his book on the premise that these are concepts which were accepted and advanced either in good faith, naivete or an incomplete understanding of race/intelligence data and historical evidence by politicians, academia and media, then he seems also to be according no place to calculated intentions, political agenda or, even, warped and evil intentions. Or is this simply an apologia for those who now sense a seismic shift from Western peoples and what that may portend for their own hitherto protected status as 'elites.' Perhaps we are supposed to be grateful that certain scales have fallen from the eyes of some 'elites,' but at the rate disintegration and civil dissolution are occurring throughout the West, the general public won't be relying on 'learned' dissertations to save themselves and salvage their sinking countries; "the common folk" have first-hand experience of the bogus and hostile notions of 'assimilation' and 'multi-culturalism.'

"Ministerial feud escalates over Immigration": today's lead story in the Daily Telegraph, hundreds of comments (lost track of all the ones mocking and debunking "assimilation" and "multiculturalism"). The 'debate', such as it is, has long since past the academics, politicians and media. The public just isn't buying those lies and, with the worsening economic crisis everywhere, and the parasites milking the benefits systems and undermining national infrastructures and their attacks on native Europeans, I would say that the innate superiority of Europeans and Brits as strategists and fighters will eventually become apparent. 'The smart money' is on history.

I bought this book last night on Kindle after reading this. It seems very interesting so far. I might make a post about it later.

Leftist politicians are importing them for votes. They don't care about the distant future at all.
