    Feel free to quote me where I said you were a Marxist :yy:

    You inferred it by saying 'Marx would be spinning in his grave'

    Which part of the definition (e.g. the one I’ve given, in the abovementioned thread) do you believe entails coercion, pray tell?

    Unicultiralism: A core cultural identity that is inclusive but centred on a national ethos shaped by the history, customs, values of the majority
    The 'majority'

    (Original post by Foo.mp3)
    I agree that ‘modern’ ‘British culture’ leaves a lot to be desired, but would also encourage you to observe the fact that ‘the union’ is, now, broadly a force for common good e.g. peace, prosperity, and progress, and that we have agency regarding vices. The problem is not uniculturalism, or consumerism, per sae, but liberalism and a moral/leadership vacuum - in a highly individualistic/consumeristic, post-communitarian socio-spatially mobile age of social abstraction, apathy, and outright selfishness/sinfulness
    I would't totally agree that it is a force for 'common good' but I do agree with the rest of it.

    So you deny saying the following to me in the CA thread, post 677?

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...943765&page=34

    As much as I enjoy your casual racism towards little bogmen like me, you've proved my point about people like me being marginalised.

    and not responding when I asked you why you said it?
    Wow.
    The pettiness.

    But I'll indulge you.
    "do you live in the mainland, where noone cares a stuff if you are Irish and will readily join in and congratulate you on St Patrick's day, and even less about you being an RC"

    And the racism lies in, ... what exactly?

    No mate, you may believe I implied it but t'was you who (mistakenly) inferred it. In referring to More et. Marx indicated that you are of a leftist bent

    The 'majority'
    Core culture =/= the only culture, just means the culture that is at the heart of the system, so people need not feel oppressed by it, as it's not necessarily imposed upon them/anyone (even if it is derived from the culture of the majority), it's more of an organic thing

    I would't totally agree that it is a force for 'common good'
    'Broadly' i.e. on balance, it most certainly is :chaplin:
