There was an idea I wanted to bring up on this topic. In particular I wanted to address the difference between truth and perception. In class we looked at the cultural history of Europe and the role of Islam in shaping it. The truth of the matter is that Europe is highly multicultural in this sense and has been for centuries. However we must recognize the perceptions of many Europeans who are unaware of this. Which concept influences society more? Which shapes social, political and cultural reality more in Europe?
This topic made me think about a specific quote. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. How can we reconcile truth and perception with the migrant crisis in Europe?
