an excellent article. and sure to be controversial

By nature, humans are tribal. Tribalism is the easiest way to organize people and mobilize them politically.

Until very recently, America was a multi-ethnic society with a dominant culture. That culture is breaking apart as we become more tribal, and we begin to think of ourselves in terms of tribal loyalties, as reinforced by political elites.

Multiculturalism is the great myth of our time. The cliché is, “Our strength is our diversity.” But is it? Military officers sent to Vietnam learned that the enemy’s strength was a homogeneous culture, language, and identity.

There is no real multicultural society on the planet that has not tumbled into barbarism or devolution. Whether Lebanon, which institutionalized multiculturalism in its constitution and exploded into ethnic warfare, or Rwanda, where tribalism descended into barbarism, multiculturalism does not work.

In the end, if we devolve into a multicultural society, we will have the same political instability as other multicultural societies. The mobilization of people by identity will create a society that is inherently not viable. It is what the left’s myopic obsession with phony multiculturalism and identity politics will bring.

NYC is multicultural, it's a sea of brown that surrounds an island of white, ie Manhattan. Liberals advocate for diversity, but not in their neighborhoods.

Even if you make the entire world grey, theres gonna be those that theink their shade is a nicer gray than everyone else.

So your right. Tribalism is an immaturity we need to shed.

Millennials grew up with movies from Hollywood depicting college as this fun place where you have parties constantly. So naturally everyone wanted to go, especially with boomers saying they should. They handed out credit cards like candy to college kids in the early 2000's, saddled them down with debt, and now they're today's liberals.

I was unaware "southern culture" wasn't a real thing. My bad. There's only ever been one culture in America .
