It's a simple question. I believe that your language will determine whether or not you develop above average intelligence. I think that without language humanity wouldn't have built any of the scientific devices they now possess. Furthermore I feel we would lack the same systems used today for social, political, and meaingful debate. If all languages were similar would we be more inclined to agree with one another, or would there still be a divide between us based on race? I'd have to ask whether language is a helpful, beneficial thing for mankind, or a negative force that drives a wedge between our cultures. Another concern is this... if language is unique to each culture then is their scientific knowledge, etc. built upon their ability to communicate through it? How much does language influence society?
