Multiculturalism Analysis

The source is written by many different authors and it is mainly edited by the 4 authors mentioned above. These authors are one of the best scholars that tackle the controversial ideas of diversity, and Canadian policies. It respectfully challenges the saint idea that multiculturalism is great for Canada, however it does not claim Multiculturalism is actually bad.
It continually demonstrates the underlying capability, the conventional restraints and the miniscule disorders of the policies and blinding discourse of multiculturalism. The book not only includes facts, but also ingenious connections and real life connections for multiculturalism to migration, issues with security and privacy, the disputes with harsh labors, the growing worriment

The book opens with rather extreme views/ claims on the post 9/11 multicultural debates. This book expands on the ideas that the management of foreigners, and regulation with land in Canada should be the responsibility of the white man. It seems the poem by British novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling; the white man’s burden has become a major inspiration for this book. An analysis of the poem reveals the author is implying that imperialism is best for the United States. The book may not go to as extremes as the white man’s burden, however the ideas seemed to be inspired by them. Another weakness is the fact that the book is extremely wordy, which significantly lowers the possible readers. I believe this book is at a much higher reading level than Grade twelve which is sad considering the ideas it includes should be shown to students at a young age to allow them to be more open …show more content…
It has allowed me as a reader to be more knowing about the issue. When I had skimmed over the book the first time, it was a complete outrage that people could have such extreme views, however as I had read the book in more detail through the March break I was more enlightened. Of course the book hasn’t changed my perspectives 360 degrees, but I have become more aware of their perspectives. As I go through the introduction for my ISU, I can see my intro was more biased and favored multiculturalism, however after reading this book I have learned to be less biased and learned to accept the points on the other side of the scale. The book is one of the most controversial books I have read since it starts with a strong point against multiculturalism but ends with a more understanding view. I believe this book was extremely effective and most useful in my ISU contrary to my belief in the rough copy of the annotated bibliography. Like the book evolved to be more understanding and accepting of why multiculturalism is good; I have been able to become more open minded by admitting their perspectives which is why I would definitely recommend this book for another critical

    Nationalism In Canada

    This quotation highlights how the problems that come with various nations occupying a territory brings about resilience. This statement is true as there have been several times in history where the differences in society have been used to develop the country rather than hinder it. For instance in Canada, a country built on multiculturalism, it is simply instinctual that this diverse foundation remains. The clashings and struggles of various nations have helped shape a country that is greatly loved and respected, one that recognizes and accepts differences in culture, languages, and lifestyles. This source is conveying an aspect of nationalism that is present in Canada which is based on shared values and laws rather than ethnic or historical backgrounds, civic nationalism.…

    Why I preferred the book well to start with it gives lots of details instead of the movie. It does actually mean a lot if I like a book because I tend to be very picky about what I read. the book plot, story, theme, everything was so well done and thought out that once you start reading it, it is hard to put it down and stop reading. Reason why it is so hard to stop reading it well every chapter pretty much end with a cliffhanger. Great books like this one are very hard to come by.…

    The selfish nation it was, Great Britain desired to abandon its British North American colonies, since Great Britain was faring well on its own. To do so, Great Britain encouraged the BNA colonies to unite as a British dependency through confederation. Yet, Canada as a young nation saw Britain’s encouragement as a prospective idea towards its nation-building and independence. With confederation, Canada achieved greater self-reliance while remaining loyal to the British Empire. British patriotism was preeminent in Canada, as Britain was their role model and used the British model as a guide in creating their government, laws, and military.…

    Canada decided to enter world war 2 because of a decision by the Canadian Parliament since the Canadian population believed it was the right thing to do. Referring back to world war 1, Canada joined the League of Nations to promote peace in the world and to prevent any other further coming wars. This meant that Canada urged peace in the world, which meant that they are willing to fight for it. Moreover, the reason Canada was not obligated to join the second world war was because of ties being cut in 1931 from the Statute of Westminster. The Statute of Westminster was a law that granted British colonies legal freedom, and would clarify Canada’s Parliamentary powers.…

    I 'm sure it was to emphasize the point Blackmon was trying to convey, but I feel like it only made the novel harder to digest than it would have been otherwise. I believe that if Blackmon had demonstrated each point once, it would have been a much faster read, and I would have enjoyed the book more. I also would have more time to analyze it, and reflect on what I had learned from it. While this issue is something I feel kept me from reflecting on the book, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Each part of the book contributed further to my understanding of the most fundamental parts of American history.…

    For my final essay, I would like to write about a belief that I did not have at the beginning of the semester. The belief is that committing errors is beneficial, and erring is completely normal. Although errors are generally inconvenient - and I cannot say that they are not harmful - I believe that they are beneficial in the long run. After reading Kathryn Schulz's Being Wrong, and after writing a handful of essays and short papers which required research, my opinion of error has evolved and matured throughout the course. At the beginning of the course (and even before then), I looked at errors with disdain, because I focused on the negative consequences instead of the positive consequences.…

    To start, if I don’t like the topic I choose for an essay or if I don’t truly understand the essay guidelines then the focus is really affected. By the end with the final copy in an essay the focus is normally more sharpened than the first draft because as I understand the errors I see where I truly went wrong in guiding the focus. After I find where I went wrong I formulate a solution to guide the focus back on track. Reviewing an essay at least a week after writing it will easily reveal how I strayed from the focus. Particularly in ”This is Gaming?” I did an exceptionally well job in keeping my focus steady but I feel that since it was an observational essay it would be somewhat to stray from the focus.…

    Although when reading it does seems that there is no argument for total equality, just less inequality, which I believe will result in opportunity for less economic volatility. Some small limitations to this book is that I found it had a confusing mixture between economics, social policy, and political theory and tends to suffer from being redundant in particular sections. His point was well presented and has great reference material but I believe because of the repetitive nature of this text the book could have been shortened. With full honesty I did find myself frequently checking how many pages were left until the next chapter, his plea for a stronger government for the 99% was what kept me hooked. Not many authors in this topic can provide an explanation to the root.…
