The Migrations in the Old and the New World
Abstract: In the last four decades, the US and the Western societies have become the main destinations for the new global migration flows. The new immigrants come from America and Asia and many other regions of the world, while in the 19th century the immigrant mostly came from Europe. The new immigration in Western Europe is a case of a radical change from the European immigration history in the rest of the world. The different races conditioned by the new migration movements has changed the essence of the old religious pluralism – it went from cultural to ethnic pluralism. Nowadays, people in the Western world find their spiritual fulfilment mostly outside the traditional religion and religious situations. Some of them feel the need for belonging to certain institutions, while others are attracted by the eastern philosophic and ethnically-moral movements and doctrines, and both find their spiritual peace by practicing those philosophical doctrines and techniques. The modern world is characterized with pluralism and that is the reason why many worshippers most often choose and mix elements from various traditions, beliefs and philosophies.
