Look at these liberals suck butts……why didn't the free black, eastern european and asian countries produce more inventions during this time frame ?

It is because they were not in an environment of democracy and freedom. Western civilazation changed the world.

If this is an oblique racist argument that muti-culturalism sets back Western society then quoting an alphabetical list of inventions from the encyclopedia in no way represents a rational discussion of that argument.

May I quote the country of America – racially and culturally diverse.The said country put the first man on the moon, produced the likes of Bill Gates and his empire, leads the world in the film industry – how many examples do you require?Multiculturalism exists in the US with everything from Amish to Vodun, from Orthodox Jews, Greeks, Armenians to Southern Baptists all flourishing and co existing.

I think America stands as proof that multiculturalism and the spirit of innovation and invention are able to co-exist quite successfully.Bigotry, hatred, racism, predjudice, intolerance and supremicism are what lead to conflict and restrictions on freedom of individuals who might otherwise have been out there inventing – if they had been of the "correct" race/religion/political belief/sexual orientation.

I'm not an American, by the way…..

there is a book that was written by a jewish rabbi
he came to the conclusion that almost all inventions were done by "christians" and definitely where there is no freedom in atheistic communist countries there has always been no encouragment to make inventions.

did you know the concept of tv was realized by a mormon and then stolen by a patent thief?
in a free market economy inventions are encouraged
in a facist federal government inventions are held back by patent thieves who steal from the true inventors and are forced by corporations not to be produced for their own lust for power and control

multiculturism is not the active factor in these inventions. it is freedomor government control

Yes. There probably would have been even more if women, blacks, southern europeans, Roma, etc.had been allowed to fully participate in society.

Nope, I don't think so…especially if Asian/South-Asians were forced in there.

I am From south east Asia(India).

Yes why not them and more, any of those things invented since the second world war in the UK were arguably done so since multicuturalism


Not sure what you're trying to say, but many of these inventions occurred in multicultural societies in the past few decades.
