Why Multiculturalism not intergration?

Post ww 2 migrants refugees knew they could have both and still do.
Why the change what good can come out of third generation migrants still living apart?
Are we, this country and others an experiment? is some group trying to see if we can be many countrys in one
Greeks Italians just about all in the first twenty years of post ww 2 refugees are while remaining true to their birth right as Aussie as any one
Who benefits by that term multi culture?

This thread is not about racism, we can put our heads in the sand and say no such thing exists, but it does in every country, only the race differed
It is about who thought Multiculturalism was a better way than integration
Some here, including a recent refugee from these pages, dislike me, because I refuse to even consider all Muslims are evil
But some are
We however see grandchildren of ww 2 migrants/refugees as Aussie as any one, but still having their national dress for their day, and much more
If some one [the UN?] is trying out its wish for one world on us why not integration
World wide unrest even terrorism from both right and some migrants is it worth considering other ways we can get along with each other

Belly don't you remember Al Grassby? It was his little plan to boost ALP voters among migrants. It bought some at a terrible cost to the nation & all of us.

It was no different to Richardson pandering to the Greenies, buying votes with special deals, that caused as much damage as the Multiculturalism scam.

As unionism collapsed in private industry they needed something to suck in more voters & this was their way.

Hi Belly,

Our country is often described as a successful
multicultural society. And it is, in the
sense that people from all different backgrounds
have been able to live in harmony due to government
policies that expected both the dominant, and the minority
groups, to respect each others cultures and the
rule of law. Also multiculturalism was accepted as
a nation building project.

However, there is a predominant culture just as there is
a predominant language. And the political and cultural
institutions that govern the country are absolutely
critical to that attitude of harmony and tolerance.

We have a robust tolerance of difference in our society.
But to maintain this tolerance we have to have an
agreed framework which will protect the rights
and liberties of all. Loyalty, democracy, tolerance,
the rule of law

Foxy,

Strangely, I agree wholeheartedly with you. Certainly, more efforts should be made to integrate newer Australians into the working fabric of Australia, to ensure, for example, that women have good enough English to easily get by and to improve their educational and work opportunities.

I don't see, as an iron rule, that migrant communities create any problems, except the fringes of some Muslim groups. Vietnamese ? Latin Americans ? Filinos ? Koreans ? They're making their way and prospering, as they have every right to do.

Belly, is your concern about those new Australians connected in any way to your unfounded fear of world over-population ?

Joe

Dear Foxy,

I disagree with the idea posited by politicians, bureaucrats and business people that multiculturalism is some sort of social success story. A congeries of disparate ethnic groups that are each vying for status vis-a-vis competing ethnic groups is in my view a recipe for disaster in the long term.
