My good friend Prof Salim Mansur has written a book which exposes the lies of toxic multiculturalism. Lorrie Goldstein writes about today in the Sun. You can attend the book launch in Ottawa! It will be this Saturday put on by the Free Thinking Film Society.
One big, Delectable Lie
Author compellingly argues that multiculturalism
Wasn’t meant to unite us
Lorrie Goldstein – Sun Media
Official multiculturalism as practiced in Canada and by other Western democracies is destructive to the liberal ideals of individual rights and freedoms.
By replacing the core liberal value that individuals are entitled to equal rights with the false notion that all cultures are of equal value and deserve equal treatment, official multiculturalism undermines the principles of Western democracy.
Worse, it is being used by adherents of Islamism to undermine liberal democracies from within, by attacking such key principles as freedom of speech and the separation of church and state.
These are the foundational arguments of a bracing new book by Sun Media columnist Salim Mansur — Delectable Lie: A liberal repudiation of multiculturalism.
As Mansur explains: “My point is that although multiculturalism once seemed a very good idea, at least to politicians and others smitten with the ambition for unity, it is increasingly shown to be a lie — a delectable lie perhaps, yet a lie nevertheless — that is destructive of the West’s liberal democratic heritage, tradition and values based on individual rights and freedoms.”
