Hope for What and Change to What?

“…And we have abdicated our position as a world leader, as if our desire were not for security, but for exploitation – another example of that decried Colonialism which the Left sees everywhere…What greater act of colonialism than to bind a segment of own population to shame and poverty through government subsidy and by the insistence that they be judged by lower standards than the populace-at-large? We have created a permanent underclass through the ignorant and sententious operations of the mis-educated and ignorant. And we compound the legislative enormity by insistence in education on “diversity” and “multiculturalism”. These are a codependence similar in the prewar South on the Biblical support of Slavery.”
….
“Diversity” (and “multiculturalism”) is a pat on the head from the White members of my generation sufficiently inexperienced and self-absorbed to feel they are entitled to “bless their inferiors.”

From the Hope and Change chapter, David Mamet’s The Secret Knowledge: On Dismantling of the American Culture, 2011
