Cultural diversity has tamed Australia

Posted on: June 21, 2010

It has likely been some time since your esteemed columnist has taken a trip down under for otherwise he might not have made that unkind reference to Australians as being less well behaved than dogs (Time for a four-legged Woodstock, Bangkok Post, June 20, 2010). If he would take the time to visit this beautiful country he would find that it has been mellowed considerably since the waves of new non-conventional migrants from places like Italy, Greece, China, Vietnam, Lebanon, and India diversified its cultural portfolio. Cultural diversity in and of itself has a civilizing influence. Please give them the credit due for coming up with an entirely new genre of music instead of using this remarkable event to put them down.

“Cultural diversity in and of itself has a civilizing influence.”
That doesn’t seem to be the case in the US considering many of the immigrants of the last 10 years or so…or maybe I’m talking about the Illegal ones.

illegal migration is a big problem in both nations.
