You are clearly here to pursue an agenda, and one that is about as close to racist as you can get. Either that, or you're trolling, neither of which are welcome on Historum. You bring nothing to the table, so you are hereby removed from the forum.
I believe you are right, but this has been done on an almost empty land, and removing the sparse populations already there. I think this is the pre-condition to make a super-culture work.Cultures are like religions ... if a state adopts a "state culture" it won't be able to manage the cohabitation of different cultures within its borders. Obviously a state should be "lay" [neutral] regarding cultures. This is technically impossible.
So? The best result we can obtain is to create a "super-culture" [in the sense that it stays above], like in the United States, which are not multicultural [multicultural countries cannot last for long ...], but they have developed a super-culture [with the "American Nation", which has been developed as well and which is actually a "super-nation"].
Substantially that's the mechanism. As a counter example we can think to the experience of the European Community. There was the intention, political intention, to put all the Europeans in a "common house". After the evolution of the Community into the Union, recent events tell us that such a good intention is not so easy to realize. In an ancient continent like Europe, with different ancient and strong national identities [so cultures], it's an arduous mission to create a super culture and a real European national identity. The process is in progress, also at historical level [for example it's not so rare to hear someone defining WW II the "European Civil War", but personally I find this a bit anti-historical, when not on the border of revisionism ...].I believe you are right, but this has been done on an almost empty land, and removing the sparse populations already there. I think this is the pre-condition to make a super-culture work.
Empires are by definition diverse. You have an empire when one country/population conquers another and rules over it. So it doesn't really make sense as an objection.Op,
Have you heard of the Roman empire or the Spanish empire or the ottoman empire?
How About the United States of America?
America is built on multiculturalism.
