Diversity is a sociological fact of the Indonesian that cannot be denied. Diversity is the innate origin of the Indonesian nation, even long before the Indonesian nation-state was formed. It means, traditionally, the Indonesian people have actually been accustomed to diversity. But in the context of the modern Indonesian nation-state, diversity has meaning and socio-political demands that are far different from the ancient type of diversity. In this context, this article will discuss the political ideas of multiculturalism proposed by Will Kymlicka. Using the literature study this article discusses several views on multiculturalism, as well as the main points and general framework of Kymlicka’s multicultural political ideas and their position in the discourse on democracy and plural society. I argue that there are at least two dilemmas faced by theories of multiculturalism in looking at culture and cultural differences. First, an essentialist understanding of culture that presupposes that culture is a fixed, unchanging, and independent entity. Secondly the strong claims of university values in various understandings about multiculturalism is a challenge in itself, at the same time it indicates a long way to go in formulating theories to overcome the problem of cultural differences on the basis of the principle of liberalism.

This paper deals with the single principle of Pancasila and efforts to redefine the "stabilization" of Indonesian politics. Ideological strengthening measures are based on the historical power of Indonesia, which is filled with a variety of conflicts and conflicts within community groups, in political parties or in elites in state institutions, especially in competition, polarization of political interests and ideological background. The concept of ideology cannot be destroyed, always dynamizing itself as an awareness that is believed by many people, groups or within political party institutions. From this understanding, at least the New Order patterned a political awareness about the necessity of Pancasila to become an ideology of the state in the direction of an ideological awareness in a life together in a community, becoming a nation within the Indonesian state.
