Debate about Cultural Diversity in Society

Welcome to our Debate Section for Diversity and Liberalism

This section of the website 'Arguments and Facts' is devoted to the question of ethnic, religious and other cultural diversity in European and Western society. Our basic attitude is that this diversity is good and that it is an asset, both for society as a whole and for individuals. But seeing it from a Swedish perspective, it is clear that we now need to take some measures and make some changes in society in order that this diversity shall function in the best possible way.

In fact, I propose that this is not only a question of some practical adjustments, and that we also need to reconsider some established notions of how the state and our society shall be organized, and what rules and values shall apply there. This aspect of our topic is addressed in the framework of liberal democracy (political liberalism), and is covered under the heading 'Ideology'.

This website was started in 2013 and has been published in Swedish until now, i.e. until the end of 2018. What you see here is an English-language structure that contains translations of some of the Swedish-language contents, as well as some contents that were originally written in English. The tags 'sv' and 'en' in the upper-left corner allows you to switch between a page in one language and the corresponding page in the other language.

The present section of the website contains the debate contributions that I make from time to time on the topic of diversity. Some of them address issues that are specific to Sweden, and others have a more general perspective for Europe, and maybe for western countries in general. Besides the debate contributions, the division for 'Ideology' contains a sequence of pages where I propose a principled view of problems and issues with respect to diversity. This stance underlies many of the debate contributions, and I refer to it as 'Diversity in Liberalism'.

In addition, this section also contains a division for my articles about the Freedom of Information, which can be found under its own heading at the top of this page. This division addresses questions about society's needs for debate and for information access, and how they can best be handled in today's IT-based society.

The heading 'Newsletter' is used for a collection of the newsletters that I send out once or twice a month. The headings 'Dialogs' and 'Comments' lead to experiments with a variety of ways of organizing discussions on the topics of this website section.
