I firmly believe that the essence of effective communication is mutual understanding of the spoken and written word. While the more or less common language of the bulk of North America and the majority of Great Britain is English, it has, in a relatively short time, in historic terms, become an all too swiftly deteriorating tongue. If, as I choose to believe, there is little of greater importance than communication in the human experience, then the maintenance of its basic structure and efforts to constantly improve it are of unarguably great importance. While deterioration of the ability to communicate effectively may not definitively bear the greatest share of fault in the breaking down of modern international relations and societal standards, it clearly contributes substantially thereto, and I can only believe that, if not curtailed and, preferably, reversed, there will be little, if any, grounds for hope in the future of our species.
