      Well, the most long-term stable sattes in Europe have been rather multiethnic: from the UK to Spain, from France to Russia... and let's not forget Switzerland. Nevertheless, excepting Switzerland, all them have been dominated by a single hegemonic ethnicity (English, Castilian, French, Russians). Their stabilizing characteristic may be instead that they are inclusive nationalisms, not ethnically exclusivist. For instance, Scots and Welsh have been largely "included" but Irish were not, hence Ireland revolted and eventually broke apart. What happened after WWII (and WWI in some case) was largely an ethnic cleansing of massive proportions, mostly in Eastern Europe. This may have stabilized the resulting sattes but it's not an ethically acceptable procedure. I am in favor of ethnic nationalism when justified (i.e. when it reflects a demand of the people and when this people are not colonists) but I cannot support ethnic cleansing as "solution". Actually the post-Cold War conflicts rather suggest ethnic cleansing is de-stabilizing and often backfires (Serbia, Israel). It is much better to assimilate the minorities by persuasion, without denying their differential status (i.e. making Estonian-Russians to become just Estonians, with patience and pedagogy). Anyhow, the real thing that has kept Europe relatively peaceful after WWII has been other kind of things: nuclear strategical balance, internationally integrated economies (like EU) and specially an affluent economy. We must not forget that more often than not, ethnic conflicts are low intensity batelfields for the great powers and that the two world wars were actually generated by economic competition between them (specially between rising Germany and estabilished UK-USA). We must not forget either that for 45 years there was an always delayed World War III pending on our heads and known as the Cold War as the Soviet Union challenged the hegemony of the USA. If it never became an open war it was surely because of nuclear deterrance, we like it or not.

      @Johnny: at the molecular level distilled water is not homogeneous because distilled water is made of hydrogen and oxygen, without any impurities.But in a broader sense you can say "a glass of distilled water" is homogeneous since it maintains the pure form of water.Thanks you.
