"'Get me out of here, Nigel. This place is a mad house if ever I saw one. Cat and dog ignore their differences and pretend to be equal. They all dance to the same tune. It's not the house that I was born into.'
I want to find a place where I feel I belong once more; a country where I can be myself in comfort and contentment. I need to live in a place where every home, however humble it may be, is one's castle; a home above which flies 'one flag only' that clearly identifies who I am and where I come from. I want to be me. I want the freedom to believe in my God. I want to marry the person of my choosing. I want to be free to think my own thoughts and express them fearlessly within the law of the land. I want to be brave enough to say what I truly feel and know that I will not be arrested, imprisoned or killed for having appropriately voiced such views.
And therein lies the greatest problem with the experience and social engineering experiment of 'multiculturism' within any democratic society.
Though some people would like to believe that we were all born equal and therefore we are all equal in today's world, anyone with a functional brain and who isn't blind to the wide disparity between the rich and the poor, the governing and the governed and the powerful and the powerless will know that to be untrue. I fear that it is 'only in the eyes of God is this sentiment true.'
The truth is that we are all born 'different' and are blessed with diversity of traits, characteristics, cultural, religious and ethnic preferences. No country, culture, religion, race or sex is superior in merit to another. From the moment we are born, nature and nurture teaches us all to 'discriminate'.The best that mankind can strive towards is to make 'access to equality of all opportunity' as realistic a prospect as is possible."
