Keep It Real wrote:I just traveled from Cheltenham to Cirencester after being picked up by my mother. I told her all about this thread and her views have made me think twice. She basically said that yes, people generally prefer to be around their own kind, but that we need to fight against that impulse and try to see everybody as basically the same regardless. I'm not sure I like the idea of a world where ethnic differences dictate policy/citizenship rules. Deviding up the planet along ethnic lines seems if anything even more divisive. I need to think on it a bit more but it looks like I'm going to back down and just encourage inter-ethnic socialisation, against our impulses to stick with our own kind, in the name of planetary harmony. Need to think on...
Or just wait for the next time the wind changes direction.
