I have a plan to destroy America
by Richard D. Lamm
I have a secret plan to destroy America. If you believe, as many do, that
America is too smug, too white bread, too self-satisfied, too rich, let’s
destroy America. It is not that hard to do. History shows that nations are more
fragile than their citizens think. No nation in history has survived the ravages
of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and they all
fall, and that “an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit
suicide.” Here is my plan:
Go, read it all here.
1. We must first make America a bilingual-bicultural country. History shows,
in my opinion, that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism
of two competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to
be bilingual; it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. One scholar, Seymour
Martin Lipset, put it this way: “The histories of bilingual and bicultural
societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy.
Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon all face crises of national existence in
which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus
have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties
with its Basques, Bretons and Corsicans.”
2. I would then invent “multiculturalism” and encourage immigrants to
maintain their own culture. I would make it an article of belief that all
cultures are equal: that there are no cultural differences that are important. I
would declare it an article of faith that the black and Hispanic dropout rate is
only due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other
explanation is out-of-bounds.
3. We can make the United States a “Hispanic Quebec” without much effort. The
key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the
Atlantic Monthly recently, “The apparent success of our own multiethnic and
multicultural experiment might have been achieved, not by tolerance, but by
hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically, and what it
meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold
us together.” I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and
culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with a salad bowl metaphor. It
is important to insure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in
America reinforcing their differences, rather than Americans emphasizing their
4. Having done all this, I would make our fastest-growing demographic group
the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated,
undereducated and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second
underclass have a 50 percent dropout rate from school.
5. I would then get the big foundations and big business to give these
efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish
the cult of victimology. I would get all minorities to think their lack of
success was all the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry
blaming all minority failure on the majority population.
6. I would establish dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would
“celebrate diversity.” “Diversity” is a wonderfully seductive word. It stresses
differences rather than commonalities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly
engaged in hating each other–that is, when they are not killing each other. A
“diverse,” peaceful or stable society is against most historical precedent.
People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together, and we can take
advantage of this myopia.
Look at the ancient Greeks. Dorf’s “World History” tells us: “The Greeks
believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language
and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the
Olympic Games in honor of Zeus, and all Greeks venerated the shrine of Apollo at
Delphi. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet, all of these
bonds together were not strong enough to overcome two factors … (local
patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions …)” If
we can put the emphasis on the “pluribus,” instead of the “unum,” we can
balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.
7. Then I would place all these subjects off-limits–make it taboo to talk
about. I would find a word similar to “heretic” in the 16th century that stopped
discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like “racist”, “xenophobe” halt
argument and conversation. Having made America a bilingual-bicultural country,
having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the
doctrine of “victimology,” I would next make it impossible to enforce our
immigration laws. I would develop a mantra –”because immigration has been good
for America, it must always be good.” I would make every individual immigrant
sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact.
