I think there's a difference between saying if you don't think like us don't move here and asking that if you're going to move to a different
country that you make at least an effort to adapt to that country's way of life.
I wouldn't move to France and expect the entire country to start speaking English just for me. Nor would I go walking in a parade waving an American
flag. Instead, I would learn to speak French since it's the native language of the country I'd be living in. If I wanted an American flag, I'd keep
it at home out of respect for the country that allowed me to move there.
That's basically all it comes down to. Respect for the country you're moving to. Obviously I would need a reason to move to France, and part of that
reason might even be because I think I'd have a better life there. Why leave my home country, move to France, and then try to turn it into my home
country? It's not an attempt at creating a country of mindless zombies. It's about having enough respect for the country that's allowing you move
there to try to adapt yourself to your new environment.
