The Strange Death of Multiculturalism

The ideal of multiculturalism at home was echoed with an ideology of cultural relativism abroad, especially in the 1970’s and 1980’s. This evolved stealthily into a form of moral racism which held that white Europeans deserved liberal democracy but that people of different cultures had to wait for it. African dictators might do dreadful things but somehow they did not meet with condemnation from many European intellectuals, for criticism implied cultural arrogance.

The Trouble With Islam

Tomorrows that never were

I have to confess that I love stuff like this. Amazing visions of a world to come, complete with flying cars and whatnot.
