    Irrespective of ones race, religion (if any) or former nationality assimilation is preferable to diversity.

    Diversity is divisive and can upset a homogeneous nation with tribalism and imported conflicts from the old countries.

    “One people, one nation and one destiny” as they said in 1901 on federation.
