Some in academia affirm multiculturalism. Multiculturalism limits one's ability to make distinctions and judgments. It is a hodge-podge of reason within context and culture defined equally.
All cultures are NOT equal. This is what concerns me about Obama's "submission to the U.N, I am committed to human rights as upheld by a democratic form of government. Obama said that he was going to uphold our values. Let's see how he does this in this multicultural melieu.
I do not believe that American interests will or can be upeheld IF China or those that undermine freedom in their own countries are allowed to lead or have an equal voice in international policy. If these countries don't believe in "free government", then why would they support policies that allow laws that undermine their values of "control" or domination?
Even if Obama doesn't support totaltalarian regimes, if he greets them similarly as those that are really our allies, what is the reward for their change? Are those behind the scenes so connected to criminal acitivity and corruption that organized crime really is holding the reigns of power internationally?
I would not be surprised if we found out that the powerful monied people are those that run drug rings, casinos, and brothels. I am saddened that our great nation has left her bearings in the Constitution for a dubious future.
