For nearly half a century multiculturism has existed as a substrate beneath liberal thought in Europe and the United States. During this span of time that concept has been employed in academic and governmental circles to justify our friendly relations with a Third World- despite the fact that a majority of the countries comprising that undeveloped section of the globe are inimical if not downright hostile to democracy, to justice under law and to the idea of human rights. Yet, multiculturism is For nearly half a century multiculturism has existed as a substrate beneath liberal thought in Europe and the United States. During this span of time that concept has been employed in academic and governmental circles to justify our friendly relations with a Third World- despite the fact that a majority of the countries comprising that undeveloped section of the globe are inimical if not downright hostile to democracy, to justice under law and to the idea of human rights. Yet, multiculturism is hardly identified as a rationale in the determining of our foreign policy; indeed, we, as a people, are largely unaware of its often baleful presence.
