    You live by the sword, you die by the sword. Pluralism will be the ultimate downfall of American democracy. Mark my words.

    ElMustache: Mecha is *obviously* racist. Why? Because pluralism *obviously* refers to the biological construction of racism.

    Rather, he was probably referring to cultural pluralism. Do you equate culture with race? *You* obviously have racist tendencies. After all, it is the most hardcore racists who equate culture and race. Disagree? Refer to any social science textbook for a 100 level college class.

    Mecha: Connect your two statements more adequately.

    Live by pluralism, die by pluralism?

    I could just as easily insert "telephone."

    Live by telephone, die by telephone.

    Cheeseburger - Live by cheeseburger, die by cheeseburger.

    Develop some ACTUAL arguments, people!

    I was actually referring to political pluralism, which in some ways a reflection of cultural and racial pluralism.

    "why would he think like that?"

    he might have been considering his audience; the people who do think like that and he would most like this message to reach.

    Amen, brother.

    This is entirely about why I reject religion in all its forms... It`s just another layer of artificial tribalism (and believe me, it`s entirely artificial) to separate us from one another. People are people, forget about colour, or race, or creed.

    Yes, I know that`s simplistic, but f*ck me gently, we`re very good as a species at making things more complicated than they need to be.

    Gerry, I remember hearing from somewhere that the Mexican college student was also gay. No, seriously. And:

    "Dream of better lives, the kind which never hate. Trapped in a state of imaginary grace. I made a pilgrimage to save this human race, never comprehending the race had long gone by."

    "I`ll stop the world and melt with you
    You`ve seen the difference and it`s getting better all the time.
    There`s nothing you and I won`t do, I`ll stop the world and melt with you." Modern English
    (How I do loves de 80`s).

    Melting pots are good, and to your cartoon Gerry about people getting burned its just because your not stirring the melting pot that causes burning. If you drop dark chocolate and white chocolate into a pot they will melt and slowly comingle, but whoever is on the bottom will get burned and the mixture will never be homogenous. You stire that pot and get all the different types mixing together then you acheive both a homogeneous mixture and all at the same tempuature with out stuff burning.

    problem is that the person who is supposed to be stiring the pot always seems to fall asleep on the sofa with a lit cig and a keg of leaking Capt Morgan...

    sooner or later everything burns.

    Comparing social policy to cooking in a convenient analogy is intellectually lazy and probably misleading.
