Considering the social, economic and cultural fragmentation of the population the idea of a homogenous society, united by a common culture and language, appears as an illusion. In spite of his different religion and origin the British factory-worker has more in common with his Indian colleague than with the company-manager, the university-professor or the department-director of his own nationality. So why has nobody yet thought of creating a project to integrate the detached elite or the disconnected proletariat? The question would only be into which of the other parallel societies one should integrate them.
