The weak link in conservatism regarding terrorism
Those who want to stop the immigration of Islamic people into this county are realistic, and those who are now crowing about how Islamic people are assimilated in America, and not in Europe, are dangerously mistaken. We have not even assimilated our black population and they have been here for many many years.
Anthropology, at least honest anthropology, has told us for years that when minorities within a population are physical and culturally different enough from the host population they will not assimilate. This is the reality in human nature and biology, where success in basic kin and group-selection traits prevent real assimilation.
The reality is that nations and cultures work most harmoniously when they are ethnocentric.
