Richard. D. Lamm

I have a secret plan to destroy America. If you believe, as many do, that America is too smug, too white bread, too self-satisfied, too rich, let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. History shows that nations are more fragile than their citizens think. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and they all fall, and that "an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide." Here is my plan:

1. We must first make America a bilingual-bicultural country. History shows, in my opinion, that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. One scholar, Seymour Martin Lipset, put it this way: "The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon – all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with its Basques, Bretons and Corsicans."

2. I would then invent "multiculturalism" and encourage immigrants to maintain their own culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal: that there are no cultural differences that are important. I would declare it an article of faith that the black and Hispanic dropout rate is only due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out-of-bounds.

3. We can make the United States a "Hispanic Quebec" without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently, "The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved, not by tolerance, but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically, and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together." I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with a salad bowl metaphor. It is important to insure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in America reinforcing their differences, rather than Americans emphasizing their similarities.

4. Having done all this, I would make our fastest-growing demographic group the least educated – I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50 percent dropout rate from school.

5. I would then get the big foundations and big business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of victimology. I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was all the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.

6. I would establish dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would "celebrate diversity." "Diversity" is a wonderfully seductive word. It stresses differences rather than commonalities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they are not killing each other. A "diverse," peaceful or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together, and we can take advantage of this myopia.

Look at the ancient Greeks. Dorf's "World History" tells us: "The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic Games in honor of Zeus, and all Greeks venerated the shrine of Apollo at Delphi. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet, all of these bonds together were not strong enough to overcome two factors ... (local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions ...)" If we can put the emphasis on the "pluribus," instead of the "unum," we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.

7. Then I would place all these subjects off-limits – make it taboo to talk about. I would find a word similar to "heretic" in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like "racist", "xenophobe" halt argument and conversation. Having made America a bilingual-bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of "victimology," I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra – "because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good." I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact.

8. Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson's book "Mexifornia" – this book is dangerous; it exposes my plan to destroy America. So please, please – if you feel that America deserves to be destroyed – please, please – don't buy this book! This guy is on to my plan.

Compelling argument for assimilation. But is there no middle ground? Can we not be tolerant of and even embrace different cultures as they are then meet them halfway.

Instead of building walls can we not build forums to share culture akin to a supermarket where everything is available. A supermarket where I have a choice of what I can pick up off the shelf and not have to pay for it and have it forced down my throat and told to like it for fear of being ostracized. I agree this 'diversity' in society with China town and a french speaking state are tools of division. But stripping someone of their culture doesn't seem free and good either.

I wish I had a more concise solution but I'll just throw out ideas. I suppose a compromise and acceptance of new ideas in fringe cultures but countries, no people need to focus on their commonalities and have them promoted by the elected leadership and corporations. Yes, we elected them too - with our $'s and letting them get away with theft for so long, moreso than our government as we elect them only once a rigged election is called and we spend daily.

A free society is one in which you can say, wear, eat, worship, travel and think where, when and how you want. A focus on core human values is all we need to get people communicate their concerns to eachother. It should not be wrong to criticize a culture either, for example I am not a big fan of cannibalism and I have a right to say so without be labeled an intolerant racist.

It would be nice to at least be able to communicate in a common tongue though, I find it tough to communicate to my neighbour in mandarin. We allow them to function within society without even having to adapt to the culture around them by setting up divided cultural camps like Little Italy and Chinatown to exist and grow. Then you are left with a divided country or city with micro-cultures. That limits or halts interaction and discussion and solidifies the divide between people. The end result, by design, is we cannot be united as one group on any issue or discuss and share anything in the semblance of a true inclusive public forum.
There are no others, there is only us.

Expanding on the infiltration of culture and separation via immigration. I present the following which may or may not have been done under watch of those trying to push the agenda due to the sheer scale of the operation. My hopes are that the prosecution shows no mercy to protect sovereign jobs and workers - foreign and domestic.

Quote: Firm Stockpiled Temporary-Worker Visas Using Phony Names
Mon, Dec. 14, 2009

PHILADELPHIA - A Pennsylvania staffing company gamed the nation's visa program by obtaining hundreds of work visas under names culled from a Mexican phonebook and supplying the paperwork to illegal immigrants placed in landscaping and other seasonal jobs, authorities said Monday.

"They were almost like a shadow government, because they procured all these visas, and they were the ones able to control who's getting them," Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin R. Brenner told The Associated Press.

International Personnel Resources Inc. had dozens of clients, many of them landscapers, builders and golf courses in the mid-Atlantic.

In some cases, undocumented workers were sent home and given stockpiled visas to re-enter the country and return to their jobs, authorities said. International Personnel Resources would coach them to tell immigration officials they had never been in the country illegally, according to the 11-count federal information.

The workers came from Mexico and Central and South America. International Personnel kept a Mexican phonebook at its office in West Chester, about 30 miles from Philadelphia, and used it to choose names for visa applications, prosecutors said. It accumulated hundreds of the visas for arriving workers from 2003 to 2008, the government said.

H-2B visas are designed for companies that cannot find Americans willing to work as temporary seasonal laborers. Given the nation's cap on H-2B visas, the scheme left fewer available for companies trying to bring in workers lawfully, prosecutors said.

The defendants are owner and President Michael T. Glah, 48, of West Chester; Vice President Theresa M. Klish, 50, of West Chester; and office managers Emily V. Ford, 29, of West Chester, and Mary H. Gillin, 60, of Downingtown.

Glah had been discussing the case with prosecutors for more than a year and knew the charges were imminent, defense lawyer Robert J. Donatoni said. He noted that the filing of an information suggests a likely guilty plea, but otherwise declined to comment.

The other lawyers did not immediately return phone messages. The company's phone has been disconnected.

Prosecutors believe that at least some of the client companies were aware of the scheme. None has been charged, but the investigation was continuing, Brenner said.

The government is seeking to have the company forfeit $1 million.
There are no others, there is only us.

Interesting find! Thanks, have to read that again when I have more time.

"It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual"
lol, that is so not true, because you are treated like a foreigner and alienated in BOTH countries for standing out, be it for lack of accent or your surname or the ignorance of "purists", some drill instructors of the austrian army actually thought I was a teenage spy Smile maybe just my personal experience, although I never could imagine how it must be like to think in only one language.
