The Truth is hateful.
As such, it must not be heard. Especially in a multi-ethnic society whose government is intent upon making it even more diverse through mass immigration.
The juxtaposition of ethnicities with incompatible core values in ever more densely populated cities — fed by relentless in-migration — makes for a highly combustible mixture. Urban Canada is a tinderbox waiting to explode. Friction can become ignition. And unfettered speech can be the match.
We cannot have a genuine conversation about race. We cannot give the truth a podium or an opportunity to rear its ugly head. We must not risk discord or sacrifice harmony on the altar of freedom of expression because if free speech is a right, then it must be balanced off against other rights. Rights like the right to live peacefully cheek to jowl with other ethnic enclaves. Harmony uber alles. It’s the Canadian way.
If necessary, harmony must be imposed. We cannot permit dialogue, lest the truth come out. We must not let the people understand that the superficially peaceful co-existence of mutually antagonistic worldviews and ethno-religious affinities is but a truce that cannot endure the test of serious adversity. We must not let them see through the veil, and realize that once the lid of imposed harmony is removed — as it was in Yugoslavia in the wake of Tito’s passing — ethno-nationalism and tribalism will break free and manufactured consent will be cast aside. Human nature will throw off its shackles.
Instead, any discussion about diversity must be a monologue about its inherent virtues. Citizens must be repeatedly reminded that cultural diversity is an unmitigated good, that “diversity makes us strong” and that there is “unity in diversity”. They must not learn what they already know to be true. That across the world, multiculturalism is a spectacular failure and that Canada is no exception — despite what they are told.
They must not be exposed to studies like those conducted by Robert Putnam or Robert Birrell or Frank Salter. They must not have their suspicions confirmed by the facts. They must not be provided documentation that ethnic heterogeneity erodes public trust, civic participation and social cohesion. They must not heed the advice of William Rees, that to establish the consensus needed to face the seemingly insuperable challenges ahead, Canadians, at the very least, must create “a more integrative model of multiculturalism”. To put it mildly.
