For every ten percentage point reduction in own-group density, the relative odds of reporting psychotic experiences increased 1.07 times (95% CI 1.011.14, P = 0.03 (trend)) for the total minority ethnic sample. In general, people living in areas of lower own-group density experienced greater social adversity that was in turn associated with reporting psychotic experiences.

Diversity doesn't make us psychotic; it merely raises the probability of psychosis.

Ah yes. Of course. We need to know what diversity is, before we cast it out of the temple.

What is the point of having nation-states at all if we are simply going to see every nation as being nothing more than a political agreement? Why retain the moniker "germany" or "italy" when you can be, "European Union Municipality 1 & European Union Municipality 2" ?

Are you not an EU member?
That is exactly what is happening, and has been for a long while.
Technically, England no longer exists. Neither does Ireland.
