The MELTING POT is dying by Stephen T. Jones

Customized Hosting Packages is the Best Part!!!

Today I was reading a part of Emma Lazarus’ poem which sits on the pedestal statue of liberty which states “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” I believe that people from all over the world to melting pot of the United States of America. It is amazing how we have some many different races and cultures and for the most part are able to fit into the order of status quo. This being said I think the melting pot has work for some time now but I believe that it needs a facelift. The world has changed some much in the last 3 to 5 years and I think this is a great opportunity for America to change with the times. Although I am proud to be an American it feels strange to me in today’s world talking nationally instead of globally but America is mostly what I know. This is what I know about America we have always taken great pride in being one of the world leaders and I believe it is time to lead with a better example by holding on to what works and letting go of what doesn’t. Where should we start? I believe it would take a simple tweak from the melting pot into the meshing pot.

How do we tweak the melting pot?

First I would like to define the origin of the melting pot it came from pot in which metals or other substances are melted or fused. Maybe this is why America is having trouble adapting to a changing world because some of our ideas of old are fused or stuck. Let face it when is the last time you used a melting pot I am sure they were replace with something better. I believe that our forefathers really anticipated this because they knew that absolute power corrupts absolutely when they created and signed the declaration of independence.

Second, I believe that as a nation and a world we should let go of some of our sensitivities and differences knowing that it is okay to have a different opinion. I believe that one of the corner stone’s of freedom is freedom of speech and yes it can get out of hand but I also believe we can learn more about each other by putting these sensitive’s to rest. Just think people come from all over the world and we rarely take the opportunity to give them or ourselves a voice for the good and bad that is going on in the world.

Lastly, I believe that due to the 2 degrees of separation that is happening on the internet that we are collectively more powerful than any one government. I believe the days of putting pressure on the government to change is a loss cause and I believe to get more freedom we need to appreciate the freedom that we already have. I hear a lot of people say that “no one is free until everyone is free” I believe this is true but are we taking this too literal. I believe that in order to transform we need to see more and more example of people that are willing to be free.
