    Just to clarify, since the OP felt the need to thank me, my laughter was due to the numerous emotional screeds one can read here, on a daily basis, from conservatives

If you want your children to be billingual in your native tongue as well as English, fine. Cook your national cuisine, no problemo.

    Where I think multiculturalism becomes a problem is when we try to view all cultures as equal, and refuse to define a certain set of core values as distinctly American values that ought to be universal across the nation.

    For instance, we ought to have a common language, and it ought to be English because that's what most people here speak and it is our original common-tongue. If you and I are both American, but we are unable to communicate because neither of us speaks the other's language, THAT is a HUGE problem in achieving any sort of national unity or common identity.
    I'm not necessarily disagreeing, but what is the basic touchstone. People like different TV shows, different sports, different foods...yet we're all Americans.


    A certain amount of multiculturalism is necessary, or you'd never be able to live near neighbors who who are fans of a different football team -or a different football. There is a point at which it gets to be overkill. I dont't have to like anything in your culture if I don't. I just have to let you do your thing.

    That's just a form of cultural pluralism, which we had prior to multiculturalism. Multiculturalism's greatest impact in the United States is its notion of improving the status of minority cultures that had previously been ignored or outcast. In the US, we won't be fully implementing some of the more radical tenets of multiculturalism's proponents (mainly, cultural relativism), simply because we only needed multiculturalism to add an asterisk to our national identity.

    I doubt that. I took two years of Espanol in high school, about five hours a week 9 months a year, and at the end of that time I could hold a decent conversation in Spanish. I've gotten a bit rusty since due to lack of practice, but I haven't spent any siginficant time in nations where Espanol is the dominant language.

    I speak English, a modest amount of Spanish, and a little Japanese. I am not truly fluent in anything but English, but I've had little reason to be and limited opportunity to practice. If I moved to another country where another language was spoken, one of my first priorities would be to become fluent in that language.
    So you expect more of others than of yourself.

    Re: Do Liberals Hate "Cold" People?

    It's very hard to generalize liberals and conservatives, as each person is different and there are not just two kinds of people.

    But when I generalize for a moment, for the sake of the argument, acknowledging that there are always exceptions to the rule -- then I would say it's indeed often the case that there are emotional differences between liberals and conservatives:

    The stereotypical liberal is driven by empathy, maybe a naive empathy that sometimes goes too far, because they forget economic limitations. The stereotypical conservative, on the other side, is driven by emotions of fear and aggression: They constantly feel essentially threatened, that someone wants to take away their possessions, their identity or their way of life, which sometimes borders on paranoia.

    The former quickly relates to strangers and cannot stand to see them suffer, the latter consider every stranger a potential threat until the opposite is proven.

    And some among the stereotypical conservatives severely lack empathy. In many cases, that is probably just ignorance, but in some cases, it seems to be an obsession with inflicting pain and punishment on people that borders on sadism. (Think of "lynch mob mentality" or the cheers Perry got when he boasted being responsible for most executions of death sentences in his state.)

    So I don't think one side is less emotional than the other. Bleeding heart warm fuzzy talk is not more emotional or irrational than waving guns and the flag while drooling patriotic slogans and calling for the death of people.

    But of course, those are just stereotypes.

    I wasn't aware that necrophilia was now considered a desirable trait.
