We have this problem in Sweden, whose previous mishandling of massive inflows of immigrants has already started leading to ghettoisation.

The Left here refuses even to discuss this, thus ceding the debate to Sverigedemokraterna (the right-wingers) before it's even begun.

One or two counter-examples do not a refutation of "usually" make.

Unlike you, I don't need to sift the Internet, as I live in Sweden, and need look no farther than my very own refrigerator.

Let's see... Here's a carton of eggs labelled "EKOLIGISKA ÄGG". And here's a milk carton with "MELLANMJÖLK -- EKOLOGISK". I've seen similar labelling in at least a half-dozen other European countries.

Maybe if you actually emerged from your basement every once in a while and checked out things here in the real world, you might be less likely to post ignorant nonsense.

The Chinese wouldn't add more kanji. They might add more hanzi, though.

You are aware that the Japanese still use several thousand kanji in addition to hiragana and katakana, right?

Oh, and the Chinese do have at least two systems for phonetic representation--zhuyin and pinyin.

Basic is a high level languish. APL is a high level anguish.
