Assimilation, Si--Integration, Non

Over in the New York Times, Peter Salins has an op-ed piece which calls for assimilation rather than integration.


Integration is a half-way measure towards good citizenship. If we don't share basics, we're too cautious; we don't trust what we can't fully understand. It's the very old primitive version of CYA.

We can start with everyone learning good (for the purpose of collective cogitation) English.
