Previously on Echo of Freedom, Radical Podcast i have already spoken out against multiculturalism. This episode tries to clarify my thoughts on the matter, and to think aloud about the mistakes to avoid in the opposition to this trend of thought.

Perhaps one of the more popular reasons for the state's existence is this kind of attitude -- forcing people to do what is assumed to be a good thing. In the case of this podcast, forcing people to accept / not-discriminate against other "cultures". In the case of populuar statism, forcing people to "help the less fortunate". How can it possibly be wrong to force someone to do "good"?! And this is generally where the traumatized brainwashed citizen's mind stops. I've had many conversations that hit this wall. Although, I did detect a hint of you not entirely rejecting such enforceable ideas -- when you seemed to not fully embrace "individual rights"; and where you seemed to give credibility to the idea of a "community". A community is only a collection of individuals, and has no rights or voice per se. Although, you present an interesting thought experiment: what happens if the racist / prejudiced / pro-hierarchists / [insert aesthetic personal vice that may be tolerable in a minority of the population, but is intolerable in a majority] -- what happens if such people become the majority and take over the continent? Fortunately, it seems highly unlikely that it's something to worry about for the future, since the general trend of "humanity" is going in the opposite direction -- towards more openness and peace and understanding. Although, even in such a pessimistic scenario, so long as their discrimination does not intitiate (real) violence against innocent individuals, it won't be so bad. If "the state" was simply a bunch of racist assholes, I would be thrilled! But it's more than that -- it's a bunch of racist assholes pointing guns at unwilling innocent people's heads, kidnapping them, caging them, murdering them.
