5.0 out of 5 stars Smashing the glamours about diversity, 19 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Diversity Illusion: What We Got Wrong About Immigration & How to Set It Right (Paperback)
In this book Ed West writes about multiculturalism, mass immigration and the diversity drive and how these have today become subjects about which many are frightened to speak out about, unless they agree with the current politically correct status quo, about how this situation has developed, its analysis. When these subjects are mentioned in today's climate, the speaker is often accused of racism. The effect is that effective debate is closed. Ed West uncovers the history behind such a situation, and the book is an even handed and fair analysis of the present state of affairs in Britain. A great many people are concerned about mass immigration and multiculturalism and the push for diversity and the many laws that have been created to implement this. Should there be criticism of this, we are accused of racism. This reminds one of the Orwellian 'thought crime' agenda. West writes of subjects that many are concerned about but have been too scared to talk about. Just one quote with regard to the anti-racist doctrines that have developed over the past decade: "In the words of one critic of multiculturalism, it 'belongs to a family of antimonian beliefs with a long religious history behind them' where 'a doctrine of the purity of the heart was advanced as transcending mere rules of right and wrong. And the result has always been to constitute an elit of the pure in heart who would, of course, need the power to reform society so that it fully shared this ideal purity."

It is hoped that this book will encourage a conversation and debate about this subject - which is after all about the greatest demographic change this country has ever seen in its entire history.
