Conundrums

ParaPundit comments on the exhortations of a Norwegian Minister to Norwegian Muslims to assimilate Norwegian values. A thought that I had: Many European countries have small enough non-indigenous minorities that it is practical to "fix" their ethnic problems (via assimilation, reformed immigration policies, etc.), but they do not have the ideological tools/historical experiences (in the recent past). In contrast, the United States has (had) the tools, but the numbers of "visible minorities" may have reached a point where practical implementations of reformation are blocked by political realities.
