Tutorial questions for October 19, 2012
Kymlicka describes the issues of allowing minority groups access to special rights as a problem of
numbers and variety of peoples entering into various liberal countries. By allowing one group special rights
more groups will come forward demanding the same rights, where is the line drawn. What groups deserve the
rights and what if their beliefs go against a liberal society? The situation has too much potential for issues so
Kymlicka decides that minority groups should not receive special rights.
Negative liberty is the liberty from oppression of others. If a culture believes not all people are equal to
one another the cultural beliefs impose on a person’s negative liberties, and they don’t represent a liberal
society. If the culture does not represent one of a liberal society it will conflict with the liberal values and
undermine the society. All people in a liberal society are equal including women and children, some cultures
don’t believe this and would be unable to fully accept the changes they would need to make in order to
integrate into a liberal society.
The Quiet Revolution in Quebec provided the shift from church dominated to state controlled
infrastructures. This allowed a shift in what the public deemed as the good life, it became less about being well
connected to God and getting into heaven and more about being successful within society as a business person
or in a profession. This secularization of society allowed for a more equal viewing of the people also in the
sense of a liberal society and not based on their beliefs.
Ethnic groups are ones that have a homeland, a language and a culture that they can all connect to but
when in another area of the world they are unable to recreate this from within. Toronto is able to have constant
