I am relieved to hear you say that. Multiculturalism denigrates individual
merit in favor of ethnic collectivism. Ethnic collectivism is the theme of
prehistoric culture, and we owe to it such survivals as racism, sexism,
statism, imperialism, as well as less noxious versions which perhaps are
more literal versions of the original.

Best wishes. R. Snower
