It’s not an experiment if we insist that it’s working

It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong. (Richard P. Feynman)

The social experiment with multiculturalism has failed when people living in a country regard it as no more than a plot of earth they happen to inhabit, when second generation immigrants feel no loyalty towards the country of their birth and reject its established laws and values, when people feel they cannot be as proud of their nationality as they are of their roots and their religion, when organisations representing ethnic minorities are seen as part of the problem rather than the solution, when the appeasement of minorities is achieved only at the expense of marginalising the indigenous majority, when alien ideologies infiltrate the prevailing soul of communities.

It’s not an experiment if we insist that it’s working. And if it’s not an experiment, it can only be viewed as an egregious and treacherous piece of social engineering. But let’s give our leaders the benefit of the doubt and call uncontrolled immigration a well-intentioned experiment.

It’s not so terrible to admit that an experiment is not working. Many a failed experiment has led to a great outcome. Failed experiments can be reworked if the original justification and aims and terms of reference are re-examined and, crucially, supported by those affected. But first we have to bite the bullet and admit that it has, in fact, failed and provided us with an opportunity to gain a better perspective.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
