I don't think there's such a thing as "mono-culturalism" -- certainly not within a country the size of China. Culture is much more than ethnicity or nationality -- it encompasses one's worldview, one's language, one's customs (food, clothing, dance, music, etc.), one's faith and mythology, and so forth.|
China is already very diverse in all of these areas. Even the so-called "Han" Chinese vary greatly in their culture from province to province, even within provinces.
There was a book written a number of years ago, about China, entitled, "A Million Truths," with the premise that one cannot ever really say -- "this is China."
Now, as to whether China should accept mass immigration, my first thought would be "why?" China doesn't need a labor force -- it already has it. And, as has been pointed out, there's already too many people here. The only immigrants China needs at this point are "foreign experts" in areas such as technology, and these people are already here, although still very much the minority. China can (and does) send it's best and brightest overseas, with the idea that they can acquire valuable knowledge in their respective fields, and bring it back to China (the only problem is that they tend to stay overseas once they get there). There's a few of us expats who've come here and stayed and enjoy the quirkeness of it all, but I just don't see people from other countries saying, "Oh, let's move to China!"
