From multicultural festivals to pronouncements from political leaders, the message is the same: our differences make us stronger. But a massive new study, based on detailed interviews of nearly 30,000 people across America, has concluded just the opposite. Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam -- famous for "Bowling Alone," his 2000 book on declining civic engagement -- has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as...

Diversity has benefits, like crop rotation or a garden. The author notes that engineering benefits from bringing together people from different backgrounds, and culture can also. The issue though comes down to what those contexts have in common: planning and a shared goal.

Instead, politics devolves too often into trench warfare between two rival patronage networks, each hurling insults at the other, and words like "conservative" or "liberal" or "diversity" can lose meaning and become almost incoherent. Most people would rather agree than think, so they join a team.

If you live in a NATO country and import millions of Muslims who believe they have a sacred obligation to kill you, especially while you are bombing their country and financing the militias that drove them out of their homes, and they know that and blame you for it, then you are likely to end up with less trust. When some of those people begin to take revenge by bombing the cities that have welcomed them, trust gets replaced by mass surveillance, which results in even less trust.

(If AI ever achieves Total Information Awareness, including mind reading, it will probably suspect everybody all the time. The thoughts of countless motorists stuck in traffic jams might easily be mistaken for those of a terrorist or serial killer. Yet, when the traffic clears, most motorists return to normal.)

The success of diversity depends on shared goals. If the ultimate goals are antithetical, e.g. Islam vs Enlightenment, problems result and trust declines. If you don't acknowledge that and plan for it, then trust declines sooner.

i agree that diversity has potential benefits, but also real, large, and inevitable costs like the lowering of trust described in the original post.

it is frustrating that it is absolutely forbidden to even mention the costs of diversity when speaking in the PC world.

also very true. shared values and goals (a religion, in other words) are the cure for the harm diversity causes. the closest thing we have to a shared religion is the US constitution, but it is rather weak in its emotional hold on people compared to organically grown religions, which literally promise heaven rather than merely peace and prosperity on earth.

Diversity as its name implies is a close relative of "divisive" or divisiveness, division is you please, will always guarantee disharmony when our differences are amplified in preferance to our commonalities. As David Horowitz explains in his current book The Black Book of the American Left: Culture Wars Vol. V, PC is what used to be referred to as the "party line" in Communist countries "where deviations from the general party line have led to severe punishment." So far it hasn't led to outright death in this country but when the college president suggested the reason more women weren't in the sciences was because they were not by nature attracted to such disciplines in great numbers he had to be eliminated by firing.

Easily debunked. You should stick to warning specifically about Muslims.

What you say is true, as long as we ignore the long losing record of monocultural closed-loop societies in warfare and economics. The U.S. has consistently admitted people with weird national customs, exotic racial backgrounds and stupid religious beliefs. To hear you tell it, we should be a fucked-up hellhole of an economic and military basket case since the 1830s, or even the 1660s (the earliest settlers were ripe religious fanatics, rejected by the old world). We should also have lost WWII, because we faced two uniform, monocultural - in the case of Japan, ridiculously so - societies. Must have been dumb luck that we won.

I thought you were trying to limit your expression of fear and concern to Muslims? I agree that they may be a special case, but you seem to have decided to widen it to a general distrust of diversity.

Funny how the U.S., with a chief military officer named Eisenhauer (Pennsylvania Dutch, ancestors immigrated in the 1740s), won a war against a German regime with a strict cultural and ideological standards of purity. What the Nazis did to their universities had real consequences for their nuclear program: "Jewish physics" was shunned for a time (and the top physicists who fled were nearly all Jewish), and by the time they realized that splitting atoms might have a military application, it was too late to catch up.

Meanwhile, in the other hemisphere, the U.S., chockablock with Catholics, Jews, blacks, Irish (regarded as "black" by 19th-century fearmongers), Asians, Italians (consult any of the multiple warnings of 19th century racists as to the untrustworthiness of dirty wops), Germans (regarded as "black" by Ben Franklin - look it up), and Japanese, simultaneously beats the monocultural, decidedly non-diverse Japanese. How can such things happen?

Some of the strongest units in WWII were Japanese fighting for the U.S. in Europe:

The 442nd Regiment was the most decorated unit for its size and length of service in the history of American warfare. The 4,000 men who initially made up the unit in April 1943 had to be replaced nearly 2.5 times. In total, about 14,000 men served, earning 9,486 Purple Hearts. The unit was awarded eight Presidential Unit Citations (five earned in one month). Twenty-one of its members were awarded Medals of Honor. Its motto was "Go for Broke".

21 Medals of Honor. These guys got their asses kicked worse than the "Teufelshunde" Marines at Belleau Wood (the doughboys who charged into machine-gun infested woods and now have local streets named after them). Many of these American citizens of Japanese ancestry had relatives in the concentration camps in the western U.S., or enlisted to get out of those concentration camps.

Here's your ideological buddy General DeWitt, who organized the concentration camps for American citizens during the war, reporting to Roosevelt in 1942:

In the war in which we are now engaged racial affinities are not severed by migration. The Japanese race is an enemy race and while many second and third generation Japanese born on United State soil, possessed of United States citizenship, have become "Americanized," the racial strains are undiluted. To conclude otherwise is to expect that children born of white parents on Japanese soil sever all racial affinity and become loyal Japanese subjects, ready to fight and, if necessary, to die for Japan in a war against the nation of their parents. That Japan is allied with Germany and Italy in this struggle is not ground for assuming that any Japanese, barred from assimilation by convention as he is, though born and raised in the United States, will not turn against this nation when the final test of loyalty comes. It, therefore, follows that along the vital Pacific Coast over 112,000 potential enemies, of Japanese extraction, are at large today. There are indications that these were organized and ready for concerted action at a favorable opportunity. The very fact that no sabotage has taken place to date is a disturbing and confirming indication that such action will be taken.

I think of General DeWitt when I read your inane "thoughts" on race and religion. Stillwell referred to him as a "blockhead"; J. Edgar Hoover thought Dewitt was "hysterical"; you can safely think of DeWitt as your ideological soul mate.

So many Italian- and German-Americans fought in WWII that it was not thought worthy of mention. Indeed, the U.S. military was one of the earliest large organizations in world history to integrate, and boasts a tremendous diversity in its ranks, which include 15,000 Muslims.

A lot of people who think as you do were concerned that Kennedy would not be loyal to the United States as a president: there were widely-expressed concerns that he would put his loyalty to the Pope first (ironically, this fear has been closer to being realized in the votes of Antonin Scalia and other Supreme Court Catholics, who have nonetheless been pretty loyal Americans in general).

Seriously: every immigrant/minority/religious class introduced into society is suspected to be disloyal, and yet our military graveyards are full of Catholics, blacks, Jews, Muslims. How many times does this sort of thinking have to be debunked?

For 300 years, the United States has been taking people who were shunned for religious fanaticism by the rest of the world. We have kicked ass and taken names, economically and militarily. Or was this all a lie, elaborately cooked up by diabolical P.C. false-rape accusers playing a long game to weaken the American white male, so underrepresented in high-paying professions and positions of authority?

Here's how stupid this shit looks 200 years later. Ben Franklin - not one of his better days:

[W]hy should the Palatine Boors be suffered to swarm into our Settlements, and by herding together establish their Language and Manners to the Exclusion of ours? Why should Pennsylvania, founded by the English, become a Colony of Aliens, who will shortly be so numerous as to Germanize us instead of our Anglifying them, and will never adopt our Language or Customs, any more than they can acquire our Complexion.

Which leads me to add one Remark: That the Number of purely white People in the World is proportionably very small. All Africa is black or tawny. Asia chiefly tawny. America (exclusive of the new Comers) wholly so. And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion; as are the Germans also, the Saxons only excepted, who with the English, make the principal Body of White People on the Face of the Earth. I could wish their Numbers were increased. And while we are, as I may call it, Scouring our Planet, by clearing America of Woods, and so making this Side of our Globe reflect a brighter Light to the Eyes of Inhabitants in Mars or Venus, why should we in the Sight of Superior Beings, darken its People? why increase the Sons of Africa, by Planting them in America, where we have so fair an Opportunity, by excluding all Blacks and Tawneys, of increasing the lovely White and Red? But perhaps I am partial to the Complexion of my Country, for such Kind of Partiality is natural to Mankind.

Basically, he's warning us against admitting Germans, French, Russians and Swedes, because they're darkies. Hysteria is timeless, and timelessly risible in retrospect.

This discussion wouldn't be complete without mentioning Alan Turing. The British were just smart enough to not care about Turing's private life while he was at Bletchley Park busting German cyphers. Without Turing (a hero to many self-described "socially liberal" code monkeys in the Bay Area who worry about diversity) WWII would have gone on far longer and far worse for us: I have seen estimates of 2 years and 2 million more lives lost. The Germans, by contrast, gassed homosexuals. (The British got around to prosecuting him after the war, because "things were better back then," in the words of some of the closet cases on this site.)

About one of the gravestones in Arlington Cemetery with a crescent on it:

Khan died in a suicide car bombing at the main gates of his base. Khan, an ordnance officer with the Germany-based 201st Forward Support Battalion, 1st Infantry Division, had watched as several of his soldiers prepared to do a routine vehicle inspection. His unit was charged with the day-to-day security and maintenance of the camp.

When an orange-colored taxi drove toward them, Khan ordered his soldiers to "hit the dirt," said his father, who received details of his son's death from his commanding officer.

Khan walked toward the car, motioning for it to stop, his father said. A makeshift bomb inside it exploded, killing him and two Iraqi civilians in addition to the two suicide bombers. Ten soldiers and six Iraqi citizens were also wounded, the Army said.

I suppose Khan, a moderate Muslim, didn't do enough to speak out against extremists, or something. There must be some reason that having him in the military was a bad idea.

Monocultural, ideologically-closed societies have a terrible losing record against diverse, enlightened ones throughout history, in both the military and economic realms. Sometimes the more diverse countries lose, but the overall record isn't even close.

We let in Mexicans, Japanese and Russians. Mexico, Japan and Russia don't let in nearly as many of us. Guess who's winning?

rando says

I agree with this. Because people are afraid to speak up, it takes more time and energy to figure out whom among my acquaintances and colleagues are scarily authoritarian or just poorly informed. They have the right to express their ignorance, and I wish they felt more free to do so, because it gives me a couple of laughs.

Please continue to air your thoughts on this subject, such as they are. We need the laughs.

The chances that any of this will change your mind: 0%. That's too bad, because you are actually bad for America. If we had listened to people like you, we wouldn't be where we are economically or militarily today. And that's what "bad for America" means.

Diversity is good if people want to become part of American culture. If they come here just to take advantage of our society and not become a part of it, that destroys the community. Why would someone care for their neighbor if they have nothing in common and have completely different goals. One wants to improve the community, other just wants to make his money and doesn't care for anything.

That's part of the problem.

Uh-oh:

[The Irish] hate our order, our civilization, our enterprising industry, our pure religion. This wild, reckless, indolent, uncertain and superstitious race have no sympathy with the English character. Their ideal of human felicity is an alternation of clannish broils and coarse idolatry. Their history describes an unbroken circle of bigotry and blood.

- Benjamin Disraeli, 1836

They don't assimilate. They hate our society. They will never accept us.

If a resume with the name Killelea on it crosses your desk, you should file it immediately.

He'll stagger in to work drunk, do nothing, fight with everyone, act all superstitious, and spew bigotry! (Was Disraeli on to something with that last one? Hmm ... )

That's how the Immigration Act of 1965 threw a wrench into things. Since 1924, immigration had been limited to people from northern and western Europe, the most likely to assimilate and become self-sustaining, as opposed to people from southern and eastern Europe. The 1965 act allowed people to migrate to the United States from Asia, Africa, the Middle East as well as Southern and Eastern Europe and well as many more from Latin America. These populations are much less like to assimilate into the common culture of America and also less like to be self-supporting.

To that end this is a talk that describes what it felt like from their point of view. Honor is not a strong enough a word to describe their integrity

This is yet another reason that FDR was one of the worst presidents in the history of the United States.

Living in the Rio Grande valley for a number of years I constantly saw the parents talking in spanish and the children answering in english. The fairy tale that people live in america for generations without learning english is absurd, yet there are people (ft wayne for example) stupid enough to believe it.

This makes no sense. Most jobs aren't about improving the community, and people spend most of their time in their jobs or with family and friends. Self interest is universal, and that's a major thing we have in common with others. Time flies by. IF the people that come here are assholes, it doesn't mean their descendants will be. Maybe their kids will look around and not want to be like their parents. Hopefully they look around and see the good chance to be accepted by the community as one of us. Diversity actually makes that easier to happen. Differences are accepted by the community as no big deal.

End illegal immigration, track people on visas and arrest them when they fail to report an address change or if they overstay their visa, and I'm pretty sure the problems mostly end.

I grew up on a street where I was the only white kid. Everyone else was asian(mostly Japanese descent) or Hispanic. Everyone got together every 4th for a block party. I grew up with the other kids and went to school with them. Race really wasn't ever an issue because everyone was simply American. Maybe I'm a simpleton, but I don't think that race has much to do with it, although culture does. So even though there was a mix of religions and ethnic backgrounds, everyone shared American culture.

Diversity is good if people want to become part of American culture.

There is no single American culture as made clear by the cowboy vs hippie culture war and many others. Nor need there be. The only cultural values that should be universal are Western, not American, values of liberty, democracy, equality under law, and transparency in government.

FortWayne says

Why would someone care for their neighbor if they have nothing in common and have completely different goals.

Morality. It's your god who demands that you care about every single one of your neighbors as if they are your brother. That's kind of the entire point of Christianity from Genesis saying you are your brothers keeper to Jesus saying love your neighbor as yourself.

Once again the atheist has to school Christians on Jesus's teachings. So much for Christianity influencing people to be good.

dodgerfanjohn says

End illegal immigration

Easy to do. Just make all immigration legal and take off quotas. What's that? You don't want to do that? Oh, so it's not illegal immigration that you oppose; it's actually immigration you oppose. That would be fine if you had the balls to be intellectually honest, but you don't.

The immigration issue isn't about not documenting immigrants. We live in the god damn information age. Every immigrant is documented by the NSA and Google merely by having a phone, email address, or bank account. It's nearly impossible today to not be documented in just about every freaking act you do including wacking off behind that tree. So immigration complaints have nothing to do with documenting immigrants or having them go through a process. Any process we want to impose can easily be done in minutes using computers rather than years unless the entire purpose of that process is to delay or decrease immigration. And if that's the case, let's be honest about it and actually discuss how much net immigration we want and what exactly is the criteria for immigrants we want. Anything less is bullshit.

I have no problem stating that I want immigrants to be intelligent, educated, and liberal. And yes, being liberal should be a requirement of immigrating to any western nation. Western civilization is founded on liberal principles and if a person disagrees with democracy, liberty, equality under law, etc. then they cannot be assimilated into our society. Hell, we should even require that people are not affiliated with any religion and fully accept science and reject all supernatural nonsense (superstitions). We need people who are intelligent, rational, and believe in liberty.

@Rew it's a good joke, but it's not true. The Hindus invented zero:

"Zero and its operation are first defined by [Hindu astronomer and mathematician] Brahmagupta in 628," said Gobets. He developed a symbol for zero: a dot underneath numbers. "But he, too, does not claim to have invented zero, which presumably must have been around for some time," Gobets added.
