    In a free society, people will not "pair up" based on "community interest." They do so for strictly personal reasons.....not out of concern for 'the betterment of society.' And in a free society, you cannot induce people to do otherwise IMO.

    No, what the liberals in the UK did was they PURPOSELY imposed multicultualism on the UK.

The UK, and Canada for that matter too, didn't have that history. They were essentially white nations (Canada had a small native population) and then liberals got it into their head to start transforming the society into a multicultural one. The people were up in arms about this - they didn't want it, hence the huge approval numbers for Powell after he made his speech. Then the Labour Party had to introduce the Race Relations Act which seriously gutted freedoms of speech and association and again people were upset with their loss of freedom. All of this is the drug cocktail that is needed to deal with the infection. The infection was self-inflicted. None of those nasty restrictions of freedom would have been necessary if Labour hadn't purposely gone against the will of the people.

    So to complain about the medicine misses the point, the medicine wouldn't be necessary if you didn't have the illness that you inflicted upon yourself.

    Absolutely correct, that is virtually universal acceptance, yet people like you continue to scream your heads off about how unfair the United States is to you.

    In light of these overwhelming acceptance numbers, it's difficult to fathom what it is you want now that you don't already have.

    Just look at the sputtering rage and hatred on this thread alone, yet, as you say, you have 91% acceptance!

    You might also find this useful:

    Personality can be thought of as a set of characteristics that influence people's thoughts, feelings and behavior across a variety of settings. Variation in personality is predictive of many outcomes in life, including mental health. Here we report on a meta-analysis of genome-wide association (GWA) data for personality in 10 discovery samples (17,375 adults) and five in silico replication samples (3294 adults). All participants were of European ancestry. Personality scores for Neuroticism, Extraversion, Openness to Experience, Agreeableness and Conscientiousness were based on the NEO Five-Factor Inventory. . . . Results showed genome-wide significance for Openness to Experience near the RASA1 gene on 5q14.3 (rs1477268 and rs2032794, P=2.8 10(-8) and 3.1 10(-8)) and for Conscientiousness in the brain-expressed KATNAL2 gene on 18q21.1 (rs2576037, P=4.9 10(-8)). We further conducted a gene-based test that confirmed the association of KATNAL2 to Conscientiousness. In silico replication did not, however, show significant associations of the top SNPs with Openness and Conscientiousness, although the direction of effect of the KATNAL2 SNP on Conscientiousness was consistent in all replication samples. Larger scale GWA studies and alternative approaches are required for confirmation of KATNAL2 as a novel gene affecting Conscientiousness.

    LOL...what on Earth are you blabbering about?

    Where exactly did I 'scream' my head off about 'how unfair the United States is to 'me' (on racial issues)?



    And what is this 'rage' you are speaking of?

    I feel no rage to anyone on here...why the heck would I?

    Faceless nobodies on a 'chat' forum are hardly likely to cause me 'rage'.

    The only rage I sense is from you.

    Sorry, I just assumed you had the wherewithal to have read the thread and know what was being discussed prior to posting.

    It's nothing to do with other posts...you referred to me.

    I will say again, where exactly did I say anything about America being unfair on this?

    Your answer will be - nowhere; because I didn't/don't.

    Next time you lump people in with others - make sure you have the remotest clue what you or talking about.


    And what does this statement of yours mean?

    'In light of these overwhelming acceptance numbers, it's difficult to fathom what it is you want now that you don't already have.'

    Where exactly did I say that I wanted ANYTHING that I don't already have?

    Or are you just trolling?


    My guess is the latter.

    I disagree strongly with your assertion that multiculturalism is an infection. Rather, the problem is the underlying arrogance, uncontrolled lust, anger, and greed. European imperialism is largely responsible for the transplantation of people from various parts of the world into foreign lands. When they do so, they bring their cultures. Since the powers that be are not going to undo what has been done, e.g. compensate for stolen resources, we have no choice but to learn how to live together and appreciate and cherish one another.

    If you want to say, that's a disease, I would put forward that the disease is your own malice.
