Multiculturalism, in my opinion, lessens conflicts because now after having lived in different countries, I can see that the person that seemed so strange and so different in the past, is actually not different from me at all. The average citizen in any part of the world is just doing the same things what you do: work, have kids, try to give them a better life, have emotions, enjoy friends and family, perhaps travel and things like that! The world is interconnected now! Differences should be appreciated!!!
