loss of small languages

English language, and indeed any national language, derives significantly from the influence of oppressive invaders and manipulative overlords. A significant result of this is restricted conceptualization. Much evidence indicates that those who get their own way without restriction tend to dysfunction and profligate pettiness. Which is all just more reason we should fight the loss of small languages (and the unfortunate tendency of humanity to succumb to rule by elites).
