>When at the mid-19th century, primary school is made compulsory all across the State, it is also made clear that only French will be taught, and the teachers will severely punish any pupil speaking in patois. The aim of the French educational system will consequently not be to dignify the pupils' natural humanity, developing their culture and teaching them to write their language, but rather to humiliate them and morally degrade them for the simple fact of being what tradition and their nature made them. The self-proclaimed country of the "Human rights" will then ignore one of man's most fundamental rights, the right to be himself and speak the language of his nation. And with that attitude France, the "grande France" that calls itself the champion of liberty, will pass the 20th century, indifferent to the timid protest movements of the various linguistic communities it submitted and the literary prestige they may have given birth to.

>France [...] has the miserable honour of being the State of Europe—and probably the world — that succeeded best in the diabolical task of destroying its own ethnic and linguistic patrimony and moreover, of destroying human family bonds: many parents and children, or grandparents and grandchildren, have different languages, and the latter feel ashamed of the first because they speak a despicable patois, and no element of the grandparents' culture has been transmitted to the younger generation, as if they were born out of a completely new world. This is the French State that has just entered the 21st century, a country where stone monuments and natural landscapes are preserved and respected, but where many centuries of popular creation expressed in different tongues are on the brink of extinction. The "gloire" and the "grandeur" built on a genocide. No liberty, no equality, no fraternity: just cultural extermination, this is the real motto of the French Republic.

The thing is that modern "multiculturalism" is not really multicultural.

Multicultural nations have been the norm through history, they were destroyed only in the XIXth century, by left-leaning nationalist movements. In these nations, different peoples lived alongside each other in relative peace, with their own authorities and certain self-government, but under the same sovereignity.

Modern multiculturalism is not about that. Modern multiculturalism is Marxist dialectics applied to race relations. Since inciting the proletariat to revolt didn't work as expected, the Marxist revolutionary intellectual caste decided to find a new "revolutionary class" for it's own purposes, and while many found blacks, gays, women and radical intellectuals to be the best fit, others decided to build a intellectual discourse that divided all human races in just two: "whitey" and "Peoples of Colour", and of course the "Peoples of Colour", being the majority, become the revolutionary subject that is told that it has the right to revolt and bring communism.

That's what they call "multiculturalism" nowadays. Under this "multiculturalism", there is no English, no Croat, no Italian-Argentine, just "whites", there are no Deobandis, no Ibadis, no Sufis, just "Muslims", and of course there are no Igbos, no Swahilis, no Bamilekes, just "blacks". And of course "blacks" and "Muslims" are supposed to ally against "whites" so they can bring communism.

Thanks for that. I'm Australian and while my country is obviously very different from France, I know the aboriginals had a few hundred languages that were banned or discouraged up until the 70s when the stolen generations ended.

White people mostly shed their national identities when they emigrated to the New World. Kinda like a European diaspora.

I didn't "fail to make an argument", I pointed out your attempt at victim reversal by blaming conflicts on the presence of persecuted minorities, and you responded with a bunch of made up shit that nobody said except you. You're not talking about history, you're using this thread to indirectly whine about modern multiculturalism you dislike. It's /pol/ discussion plain and simple.
>>

>It's not really the same kind of multiculturalism though is it?

When Empires did it, it was to keep a minority culture in power. They also used ethnic cleansing and forced population movements to create the situations that would allow them to remain in power. Empires love it.

Today it's used as a political football by two sides of a political divide (as minor as it is intractable) within a single culture (American culture is REALLY homogeneous). The multi part of modern multiculturalism is just the wide diversity of backgrounds among tiny minorities, most of whom are just straight up American in culture.

Are you seriously insinuating that ethnic and cultural strife is not the chief reason why India and Pakistan barely cohere as a society? The Kashmir conflict is not just a territory dispute.

Take the United States. Here you have a very diverse society with relentless class and ethnic conflicts. Racial relations are deteriorating. Affirmative action has made these conflicts even more bitter than before.

Show me one intrinsic, ipso facto benefit of multiculturalism. There are none. It is always a question of WHICH cultures are being brought together. Jews and Arabs live together in Israel/Palestine. One side engages in ethnic cleansing, the other in violent reprisals. That is an example of two cultures bringing nothing to the table; as a result, they can bring forth nothing constructive.

Multi-cultural societies before ~1970-80 always had clear hierarchies with ONE culture being directly in charge and others being subjugated, it's really not comparable to modern multicultural societies.
>>
>>683816

That is.... exactly what it's like in modern multicultural societies.

The difference is that before ~1970, most multicultural societies were ruled by a minority culture being directly in charge, and the others being subjugated.

Now it's majority cultures with diverse minorities, who don't have too much in common, they all have more in common with the dominant culture.

I suppose this would depend on any amount of foreign crisis, domestic turmoil, hegemonic indoctrination, etc.

No I meant in this truely cosmopolitan nation, in which there is no primary culture that holds everyone together.

Thats horse shit, everyone in India understands that the cultural groups in the North have much more control over the national government than the Southern groups.

In fact, its one of the most heated topics in Indian domestic policy, and has been since the independence.

>>684185
The only incentive I can see for true cosmopolitanism is a confederation of nations as equals, like the Danubian Confederation bullshit that Austria-Hungary was looking into.

Even then, once such a confederation is put into place they run into the population vs representation debates which are inherently divisive.

The US had such debates at one time, inventing the bicameral house shit. So maybe it would've worked had they been given more time.
On a side note, I only thing a true cosmopolitan nation could exist if the borders of that nation encompassed the historical boundaries of its people.

Yugoslavia and Austria-Hungary for example, but the issue with these examples are that although they had many nationalities under their flag, they were quite separate and autonomous of each other.

Maybe that is a necessity?

I've thought a little on it, and it obviously stems from tribalism.

However, I wouldn't say its stupid. It holds a lot of influence over people, and although it could be a primitive thought it still holds merit for changing the destiny of millions, or even billions of people.

Maybe nationalism and ethnic revisionism are the last attempts of tribalism to invade our modern societies, or they are the very foundations of modern societies themselves.

Regardless, I hold nationalism in the same respect as religion. They're just a nexus of values that are instruments in reflecting the ambition or earnest devotion of their followers.

Pic related: Its a value shared in most religions and nationalists.

India is third world because of overpopulation, illiteracy, shitty economic reforms, the legacy of colonialism and a local culture of rampant nepotism, among many other factors. Boiling it all down to multiculturalism is just self-serving racist bullshit.

>Take the United States. Here you have a very diverse society with relentless class and ethnic conflicts. Racial relations are deteriorating. Affirmative action has made these conflicts even more bitter than before.

Yeah, because black people weren't getting lynched before affirmative action came along. Like complaining about mistreatment is worse than actual fucking mistreatment. If you label the dominance of whites over minorities as "order" then you can dismiss anyone who complains about racism as rabble-rousers who bring it upon themselves for threatening the status quo you desire.

>Show me one intrinsic, ipso facto benefit of multiculturalism.

You're the only one saying this shit, dickhead. If anyone is begging the question, it's you. Like that Stormfag copypasta that says "Everyone says there is a RACE problem" despite nobody saying this except stormfags.

What's funny about your repetitive bullshit is that by saying multiculturalism "brings nothing to the table" you can portray it as a malevolent force that has to be "brought" upon the "natural" order of monoculturalism you wank over, instead of a simple result of different groups of people existing on the same, planet coming into contact with each other, and wanting basic dignity. Those concessions of simple human rights are just the biggest tantrum triggers to racist bitches like you. As if the Israelis and Palestinians having separate borders has stopped conflict between them. As if Europeans being on the other side of the fucking world away from Native Americans and Australians was enough to stop racial violence.

India is third world because it is a country that is run by identity-driven politics. Muslims vote for one party. Dalits vote for one party. Sikhs vote for one party. Not to mention, India was run by socialism for its 45 years (and is still very much based on socialism). So basically you had a shitton of wealth being stolen by the governments every year and then redistributed based on vote-bank politics. Not surprisingly, the people that have gotten ahead in India have done so WITHOUT government help and India's true economic progress began with Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao's economic reforms which dramatically privatized the economy, allowed for more FDI, and destroyed some of the worst parts of socialism (although much was still left over and still exists even today).


Please, as an Indian, I beg of you: if you're going to talk about my country, at least educate yourself on the HISTORY, the ECONOMICS, and the CULTURE before you espouse nonsense like India is third world because of "overpopulation, illiteracy, shitty economic reforms, the legacy of colonialism and a local culture of rampant nepotism". Overpopulation is an absolutely made up problem. Read Malthus and his predictions and then read the leftist nonsense today about the "perils of overpopulation". Not a single one of Malthus' predictions came true. Why? Because human beings have creative minds that have consistently found ways to accommodate new demand.
I hate when people say that "colonialism" is the reason India is not raring on all levels. Absolutely idiotic. It's been 70 years since the British left India. The problem? One power (Britain) was replaced by another power (Gandhi-Nehruvian socialism).

The local culture of rampant nepotism is quite a generalization to throw at 1.2 billion people. I'm from a village. Local governments are the only governments that work here. State governments are useless, and don't even get me started on the national governments.

It's one of the defining features of a territorial empire. Not just conquest, but also deliberate relocation of subject people has been extremely common. If you define success by being the center of an at least regional hegemony, every success story was multicultural in some capacity.

For that matter, it's also really common in trade hubs for different reasons. Rich coastal cities and some inland trade routes do very well for themselves. And they get foot traffic from all over. So if you're counting wealth as success, you're likely to get some multiculturalism along with your success.

Diversity is usually a symptom of a successful state, but states do what they can to stamp out diversity or use it to divide and rule depending on what's convenient at the moment. Often this is worse in territorial states than in states central to a trade network. At least as far as I can tell.
