That was my take as well.  Shouldn't it be a good thing that people can have it either way, or have bits and pieces of both in the places they choose to live?

This was another thing Rifkin pointed out:  The EU has developed -- and I noticed this in London -- a sort of alternative to the Melting Pot story of America, in which you have many different cultures that are present together, but that maintain much of their respective identities (less melting, stronger diversity).  It has a lot of appeal.  There are aspects of both on each side of the Atlantic, but it did strike me as an interesting general difference.
