Is cultural appropriation just the backlash against low brow cultural assimilation and a natural outcome of modern multicultural societies? It could be hopeless to expect people to live in close proximity while refraining from slowly becoming more and more homogenous. As a result of overpopulation, immigration and historic imperialism, both militaristic and cultural, it could be argued that many societies are inevitably going to, or already have, experienced a decline in cultural diversity due to assimilation and the natural transition toward homogeneity. Moving forward we need to decide whether multicultural societies gradually becoming more homogenous is a positive or negative development, do we need to protect culture against loss, restrict borders, encourage diversity and mixing, or address language diversity loss? This last point is most illuminating, as thousand of languages have died as a result of the colonial legacy of recent history, as culture will inevitably change in a similar way to languages, should we be containing and protecting it or allowing the inevitable change?
