Pretty sure I don’t either. Tocqueville didn’t mean what people reinvented it into being in the 1980s.
He was simply pointing out that we use private, fraternal societies to take care of more social needs, than Government. In contrast to Europe who used Government far more often.
Hilariously, this was because our society was largely immigrants. Immigrants formed fraternal societies to serve their in-group. Catholic Societies served Catholics, German Societies served Germans, Italians served Italians, you get the picture.
Government Programs arose to replace them, as a demand that everyone “Be American”. I’d say that we’re worse off.
German-immigrants named a “town” in North Dakota, after a then-sitting German Chancellor. You can’t top that.
That’d be like Russians today gathering together in Kansas, and renaming the capital “Putin”.
Sounds like Singapore; four different officials languages, dozens more used in official capacity.
And I’ll remind again, in Singapore, the semi-migrant workers, who are largely Muslim (They’re surrounded by Malaysia, a Muslim nation), outnumber the Natives.
Sure, I agree with that. But it shouldn’t be so for migrant workers; that’s not necessary.
If the given job they’re doing doesn’t need them to speak English, Government shouldn’t need to require it.
