Multiculturalism, the Failed Ideology
So, yet again the toxic combination of political-correctness, multiculturalism and cultural-relativism, have coalesced in the minds of mediocre thinkers to produce predictably unwelcome outcomes.
Following the failure of social-services, the police and the liberal media to protect vulnerable young girls from the predations of Asian men in Rochdale; we perhaps should not be surprised that the same poisonous prejudices have resulted in another failure in Rotherham.
Having used the discredited concept of multiculturalism as a reason to remove three young children from their foster care placement, Joyce Thacker, the strategic director of children’s services at Rotherham Council, has prompted understandable concerns about her suitability for office.
It strikes me, that in both the above cases, it has been the very people responsible for children’s protection and welfare, who’ve turned out to be a significant threat to their well-being.
In the Rochdale case, by a complete failure to fulfil their statutory duties and in the Rotherham fiasco by an over-zealous desire to execute their perceived responsibilities in a dictatorial manner, driven by political-correctness and a lamentable lack of intelligence and compassion.
It is a sad fact, that all too frequently, the main threat to children’s happiness and security emanates from the prejudices of the very people charged with their protection.
Unfortunately, this is unlikely to change, unless and until those in authority fully recognise the failure of multiculturalism as a political ideology and robustly embrace the moral and cultural values of The Enlightenment.Don’t however, hold your breath.
