Over the years of human diaspora, very few country now can claim a population that is totally homogeneous. Even countries like Japan, India and China do not have a “one race” citizenry. Languages used within the country can be extremely diverse. According to Wikipedia, China has 202 living languages. Naturally, cultural and religious diversity is expected. However, many nations have stayed united even if the population composition is culturally and/or ethnically diverse.
When people migrate, they must be aware that the place of emigration may have a culture that is totally alien and face the consequence of cultural shock. With a conscious choice to emigrate, emigrants must accept that challenge and learn to assimilate into the new home. That does not mean that cultures and religions must be totally sacrificed in the course of migration. Cultural diversity is wonderful. But it does mean that in order to be a good citizen or resident, new migrants have the responsibility to ensure adherence to the adopted country. If this condition is not acceptable, emigration should never be considered.
Unfortunately, the world has awakened to the harsh reality and dangers of uncontrolled immigration. Some new migrants of certain ethnicity and religious convictions have shown a tendency to form segregated enclaves that are almost autonomous. Over time, as these people groups grow and become politically active, they demand a new way of life that they came from. Any opposition to their demands is considered oppression of minority rights. In other words, the host country now has to accede to the demands of minority pressure groups. That has a dangerous potential to develop into civil strife. Many countries are already witnessing the impact of such uncontrolled migration. It is hard to unravel the damage once it is done.
Galactic News – “On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:
“In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.
Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.
When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.”
The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.”
Putin is absolutely correct. However, some purportedly democratic nations allow “human rights” to be taken to the extreme form to the detriment of the nation. That can either be a result of foolish policies, total ignorance of history or unbridled tolerance of extreme views imposed by minorities that have no concern for the national interests, but only their own. Putin deserves the standing ovation for his courage to speak what is good for his nation rather than being ensnared by foolish “human rights”.
They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
