Ever since the Fatwa against Salman Rushdie the glue of multi-culturism is coming apart

Ever since the Fatwa against Salman Rushdie for The Satanic Verses
the glue of multi-culturism began to drip away 

One could argue  that an aesthetic ‘framing’ does not somehow purge the noxious elements of a literary work. 

The book was essentially a post-modern conceit by an intellectual - those offended chose 
to burn rather than read it and discuss the book.
So the message of the book although in plain view to those who cared to  read it remained hidden by flames. The pattern continues until Charlie Hebdo and no doubt will continue 

it is all so frightening and depressing it defies introspection.
