Not long ago, a foreign-born pupil attending a leading US University here in California asked me if I believed that why the USA was so successful was because of our”diversity” bringing all different cultures to a place. I didn’t want to burst his bubble chastise the politically correct story pushed down his throat in the University here, but I was not going to lie to him. So, I explained my ideas on this, and maybe it may help illuminate this for you also? Let us talk shall we.
You see, the United States of America has numerous benefits over other countries, mostly because of the abundance which includes free-markets, liberty, freedom and a belief that you can rise to the top. Having a strong military means we now have the capacity to control a lot of the free world too and we can keep our nation secure and productive.

The amount of advantages in the united states over other countries are vast, diversity is just one of these, and yes, it is a major one as stated, but it likely is not the largest or the most effective, of course it sure helps – merely because borrowing ideas and cross-pollinating from several cultures and ways of accomplishing things or solving problems is a massive force multiplier to borrow a term from military plan.
In an ideal world there would not be any walls between countries, nor will there be a demand for nuclear weapons or militaries – alas, we don’t reside in this perfect world – yet? Perhaps one day, perhaps in our life if we live long enough – and we may, older age isn’t necessary nor is dying of it. We should work to correct this issue, thus not lose the wisdom and lessons only to be heard over-and-over-again, the hard way. Not good, but it’s good that we are now able to save languages and all of humanity’s information as we proceed, albeit in ones’ and zero’s right?
