That's one way to look at it.
Things are supposed to change.
If they didn't, we would all still be swinging from the trees instead
of chopping them down, making furniture and writing about it on
Agreed, and that's one of the things that's changing. Once the guy
with the stick takes his foot off of your neck, and you get a chance
to look around, there's no way people as a group are going to say,
"Hey, mind stepping on my neck again?" But you can't force such
change on a traditional culture from the outside without whole scale
loss of life.
I didn't watch the whole video - the "here comes the boogey man"
approach turned me off, and it seemed to equate the status quo with
what is good and pure. You know, the NIMBY mentally. Once an
immigrant gets in, they want to keep the next wave of immigrants out,
and the general thinking along those lines.
: I know I have seen a large increase in Burka wearing women in the Phoenix
: area in the last two years. I still prefer summer dresses.
: Very grim if true.

When I first watched it I thought it might have a little truth because of
the increase in burkas around poorer neighborhoods in Phoenix, but I
thought their math was quite ambitious.
I agree that change is inevitable but it still can be grim. Burkas over
summer dresses.....that's VERY grim.
The problems arise when the "next" generation gets conflicted. They are
born into a very laissez faire liberal culture (say Netherlands, or
Britain, or France or wherever). However, they come from ultraorthodox
parents, who grew up in a very restricted and restrictive culture with very
stringently set values. Combine that with school systems that are so lax
that kids need to want to learn to be able to be taught, otherwise they are
just set adrift. Plus a lack of work ethic and high unemployment. That's
the recipe where hatred and extremism thrive.
Just observing. I wish I had the cure ...
