Mark Steyn describes the contradictions involved in a multicultural Amsterdam.
How many advocates of multiculturalism have appreciated that it is inconsistent with civil liberties? John Stuart Mill defends the harm principle, which says that people ought to be allowed to live as they see fit so long as they don’t violate the rights of others. That superficially seems to support multiculturalism, but in fact it contradicts it, for most cultures don’t accept the harm principle. Must we tolerate intolerance? If the answer is yes, how long is tolerance likely to survive?
