Monism with a funny hat
This was posted by Doug Wilson over at blog and mablog.
“What multiculturalism in the curriculum assuredly does not mean is a renewed emphasis upon the mastery of foreign languages or the close study of complex civilizations . . . the campaign to impose ‘multiculturalism’ amounts to nothing less than a war on Western civilization and, beyond it, a war on the very idea of civilization” (Elizabeth Fox-Genovese in the Foreword to Sacks and Thiel, The Diversity Myth, xii-xiii).
The irony of course is that the ‘campaign’ or ‘war’ turns the diversity banner on its head, making their driving concern the unanimous concession to their version of whatever they think multiculturalism means. Their pluralism is actuall monism with a funny hat.
