Prospects limited for multiculturalism
by Tibor R. Machan sub-topic» Values and Norms
In a society that strictly upholds the principle of private property rights, the potential for conflict among members of even radically different cultures and religions is drastically curtailed. This is fairly obvious – if you stick to your own place as you practice your culture's edicts and principles, you are not going to run into much opposition. Frank can do his bullfighting in his arena but, you need not join him and can ban it where you are in charge. I can marry as many women as will have me where I am the owner of the realm while you can insist on the practice of monogamy where you are.
Crisscrossing the various cultures in such a society would be by mutual consent. No one would be required to admit into his or her realm those of whose cultural practices one disapproves. Catholics would not need to accept the practices of Jews or Muslims or atheists where they are the proprietors. The examples can multiply endlessly.
