" the kind of strong national identity that cultural diversity is all about"

I've been wondering about this for some time - why do you always conflate culture with the nation state?

Because I'm a big believer that freedom you win as an individual is a pale, opt-out kind of freedom, and culture you develop as an individual is a sort of autism. Freedom and culture signify at the level of groups, and the nation state is a group with money and legislation behind it. With money and legislation you can achieve incredible things!
