Cognitive dissonance of the cultural diversity narrative

Have you ever wondered what makes different cultures different?

IMO it’s because they conserve their traditions and retain identity by NOT integrating, even when their tradition is based on superstitions that nobody believes anymore.

People practice culture because they want to feel they belong to an in-group. It divides society into us-es and thems-es and each one fiercely protective of their own.

You know what?
Culture is a social construct 😋

identity or anonymity

Paranoia makes people conceal our identity, but if nobody knows who you are, then is there any point saying what you think?
The rest of us shrug and go “meh – just another cyber troll pushing their agenda. Plenty more where they came from and plenty of the opposite camp too.

Personal details can be used for identity fraud:
e.g. security question: “What’s your date of birth?”
Well seriously… if you have it so as you can check it… then chances are others have it too and maybe so that they can abuse it.

Insurance companies might use DNA or your history to deny those who most need cover and our history can be abused to deny us employment, credit, membership.

Walls or Fences

I was just reading that the large number of migrant laborers working on the rebuild in Christchurch are contributing to the demand for synthetic illegal drugs.
They also compete for jobs and erode potential wages for our own young men.

The police thought I should put up fences to keep thieves and vandals out, but I think this “cultural enriched” city is maybe not the place I want to live.

Needs a fence?

Google recaptcha imposed by Disqus.

For unknown reason Disqus, or maybe Google single out my main account to impose captchas.

It could indicate that there are haters botting to try and hack my password. That would results in suspicious behavior to the recaptcha engine, but it could equally mean that one of these companies employs someone who just wants to be a pain in the arse to me.
