It's a great post! Ultimately, I think we are losing those wars so that middle-of-the-road Americans get comfortable with Middle Eastern food and the people who come along with it. I don't mean that flippantly. Taste is the most conservative sense and the one that affects politics most deeply. If we develop a taste for another culture, our relation to it will be forever altered. Yes, we have a taste for Mexican food and still have all the border nonsense. But most people below, say, age 40 are completely comfortable with the existence of Mexicanness in their midst, whatever they might say for Fox News.

An excellent example of how the Definer class is capable of moving from culture to culture without touching down and Producers view cultural distinctions as inherent and fixed.

I agree.
