From Jonathan Haidt's The Happiness Hypothesis:

"Our conclusion from this study is that diversity is like cholesterol: There's a good kind and a bad kind, and perhaps we should not be trying to maximize both. Liberals are right to work for a society that is open to people of every demographic group, but conservatives may be right in believing that at the same time we should work much harder to create a common, shared identity."

Andy's comments are exactly on target. We need to take a look at the WHOLE thing -and as usual the devil is in the details. That is, the details of implementation and making it work in a civil society.

Who, exactly, is going to determine what is the 'good kind' and what is the 'bad kind'? Diversity crammed into a box of other's perceptions is not diversity at all.
