Because they have lost their nationalism, they are cosmopolitans who could almost laugh at themselves. Their education has etiolated their sense of race.
8. What elements in the passage reveal the narrator’s love-hate relationship with England?
When he thinks of England he immediately says then when he was young he loved and hated with all the emotional polarity of his race.

Discuss the quotation in a 300-word essay considering the positive aspects and the complexities that cultural diversity may introduce into modern society. Support your ideas by referring to your readings and/or to your personal experience.
Culture shapes us. It shapes our identity and influences our behavior. Culture is our “way of being,” and includes language, beliefs, values, norms, behaviors, and material objects that are passed down from one generation to the next. Our modern society is made by several cultural identities, and i think this diversity can introduce several positive aspects in our world.
First of all, thanks to cultural diversity, we can discover other foods, festivals, fashion and cultural expressions. Living in a multicultural society, where people from different ethnic group inhabit the same country, has a deep impact on our everyday life: let’s just think about sushi, chinese restaurants or Halloween festival. They are not part of our italian culture, but we discovered them and we ended up loving them. We can learn from other people and they can learn from us, without denying the importance of our won roots.
In second place, several studies have shown that cultural diversity has a positive effect in the workplace: diversity brings in different talents together, all of them working towards a common goal and using different sets of skills. In this way, productivity increases, morale increases and employees are more courteous to customers.
Otherwise we can’t deny cultural diversity may also have negative aspects, such language barriers and social tension. Language barriers are generally temporary in nature (most immigrants eventually learn the language of the country they move to), but the resultant segregation can endure, as exemplified in segregated neighborhoods and ethnic ghettos Social tension instead, can occur as a result of cultural and linguistic differences. In Europe, for instance, tension between the Muslim minority and the largely secular majority is frequently attributed to the incommensurability of Islamic and Secular values.
In any case, these are not reasons to avoid diversity, but rather, factors to keep in mind as society heads toward a more diverse future. We can learn from our mistakes and use them to shape a different kind of world.
