    Diversity in moderation was his point, I think. Too much conformity stifles creativity and suppresses growth and innovation; too much diversity results in the Tower of Babel, in which people cannot even understand each other's language.
    The point was more diversity can be a double edged sword. I’m not sure I would agree that ‘freedom’ is something universally cherished by Americans. It seems most people want what is best for them and to **** with everyone else.

      There seems to be a point of equilibrium that needs to be established. "Assimilation" is used in order to show that one culture does not trump another. This is why many see Muslims as incompatible: Their culture, at least when interpreted literally (which devout radicals do), dictates that all other cultures must be eliminated and only theirs is acceptable anywhere, anytime. That's why genocides and culture wars exist. However, throwing away one's past is never good, either, because there are things that you can learn from other cultures to better a particular society as a whole. Otherwise known as "evolution".

      You want to thank a spaghetti monster or eat Chinese on Christmas? That's your choice. Just allow my family to practice according to our traditions, and we'll get along hunky dory.

        Short doc from NBC Left Field. Sounds like a new open format news org within NBC producing stories and documentaries.

        It’s about Title IX and how MRAs are suing universities.
