Summary/Abstract: The study examines the association between the ideology of multiculturalism and political correctness. The policy of multicultural correctness is becoming obsolete as a result of vanishing universal values and the need for trans-cultural harmony. Multiculturalism accompanies politically unlimited globalization where the criterion of social justice is replaced with the criterion of differentiation and where it is diminished to cultural differences. Multiculturalism as an emancipation tool may only function under the circumstances when human rights are treated primarily as social rights. The Islamism of the Western European ghetto abuses the disparity between the political and social rights. The return to the culture of the ancient homeland (=Islam) is a reaction to poverty and a form of protest against social powerlessness.
