United Kingdom Home Secretary Suella Braverman, along with other Western leaders, has shared concerns about multiculturalism, viewing it as a policy which has failed Western society. She sees it as a policy that has unintentionally led to the creation of isolated communities, where people live lives parallel to the rest of society, often challenging the institutions and laws of their host countries to promote their own collective and tribal goals.
In Canada, where multiculturalism is an official policy, we’ve witnessed the outcomes of significant, unrestricted immigration. People are bringing with them the collectivist influences of their own cultures. Whether it is the Khalistani separatists, Ukrainian Nazis, or Hamas supporters, to name but a few, the official endorsement of multiculturalism has permitted such groups to contributed to a cultural gap between the foundational classical liberal culture of the West and tribal sentiments and passions of less liberal societies.
Salim Mansur, professor emeritus at Western University, sheds light on this concerning political trend. Twelve years ago, he expressed his scholarly perspective in Delectable Lie: a liberal repudiation of multiculturalism. His views then as well as now, serve as a cautionary reminder of the potential chaos tied to the shortcomings of multiculturalism as a policy.
