In this duologue a radical revision of the stale concepts of multicultural politics is proposed. With a dissection of the irrationality and destructiveness that have undermined the effectiveness of the neocolonial elite, this debate demonstrates how hegemonic elites have directly caused social disruption. The discussion focuses on how politicians employ a false brand of multiculturalism, a use that has in turn weakened the possibility of actual cross-cultural understanding. Seeking to establish a new critical approach to cultural studies, this duologue urges citizens to reject the dehumanized fantasies and aggressions that threaten the true goals of multiculturalism.
