But in a mixed society you wouldn’t get homophobic echo chambers. Native Indians Hindus and Thais and Chinese don’t have religious homophobia. Still there better not be a genetic component to culture. That would be full 1930s.

You know how cities have chinatown, or little italy, or just a general district where people from a common background will live together?

The mafia in america is still around a hundred years later. Bad stuff survives. Its just a thing.

If it only were Native Indians, Hindus, Thais and Chinese people. It's mostly people from muslim countries and the statistics are quite clear on what a big proportion of them think of our way of living.

In Europe, and only because asylum seekers outnumber labour migrants. That’s a geographic balancing problem, not a problem of mass migration per se. And I acknowledge religious extremism as an exceptional circumstance, at least until the Near East gets out of its Thirty Years War phase.

We have those problems with the (descendants of) labour migrants too, although of course I get that they're here on another motivation.

Again, MENA problem only. Geographic balancing and recruiting deeper in Asia and Africa (as well as the Americas) would help unless those regions really are a desert of culturally compatible talent.

You absolutely do get echo chambers, as many cultures naturally create enclaves. If you think homophobia is not a thing in Indian or Chinese communities.. ohhhh boy, you should talk to some LGBT Indians or Chinese...
