(Genesis 11:6-7 KJV) And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.One of the reasons that God noted for the strength of these people was that they all spoke the same language. That gave them the encouragement to defy God. It doesn’t take much of a jump to understand that having a common language is a source of power in a nation. The problem our leaders have is that it empowers us to defy Government.
My mind moved to the push toward multi-culturalism and bilingual education. The people in control of our country feel like we need to accommodate people who do not speak English. There is a level where that can help people become integrated with the American system and values. At that level it is a good thing. When taken to the extremes that are being pursued it weakens and destroys the very fiber of the country.
For instance, why do we need multi-lingual ballots. One of the requirements of becoming a citizen is the ability to use the English language. Or it used to be. Maybe that has been removed. If people are expected to be fluent why do we need to translate the ballot? If a business wants to go bilingual, let the market decide if it is wise. The government should not mandate.
The Bible is clear. One language is a source of strength.
I would submit that the resistance to a national language and a desire for a multilingual society are part of the hatred Progressives have for the United States and their desire to bring us down to third world status, with them in the driver’s seat, of course.
Multi-culturalism. Diversity. Wonderful thoughts. Destructive thoughts. E Pluribus Unum. A whole different concept.
