The woke multiculturalists proclaim, as something of self-fulfilling thesis, that diversity is “our” greatest strength. This claim is never argued for, but is asserted with religious fervour. However, there is an overwhelming case against it. I am not going to argue first hand against the diversity myth here, but for education purposes, for any students wandering our way, provide an introductory reading guide.
- T. Dinesen (et al.), “Ethnic Diversity and Social Trust: A Narrative and Meta-Analytical Review,” Annual Review of Political Science, vol. 23, 2020:
“Does ethnic diversity erode social trust? Continued immigration and corresponding growing ethnic diversity have prompted this essential question for modern societies, but few clear answers have been reached in the sprawling literature. This article reviews the literature on the relationship between ethnic diversity and social trust through a narrative review and a meta-analysis of 1,001 estimates from 87 studies. The review clarifies the core concepts, highlights pertinent debates, and tests core claims from the literature on the relationship between ethnic diversity and social trust. Several results stand out from the meta-analysis. We find a statistically significant negative relationship between ethnic diversity and social trust across all studies. The relationship is stronger for trust in neighbors and when ethnic diversity is measured more locally. Covariate conditioning generally changes the relationship only slightly. The review concludes by discussing avenues for future research.”
