Words… are… slowly demeaning their meanings

Talking with Chris Olivieri one day, we got into how cursive is useless and shouldn’t be taught any more.  If we wanted to teach children how to write differently, teach them a different language.  To take that a step further, you could teach everyone in the world the same extra language.  That might draw us all a little closer to a global communication standard.  Even if it’s a language like Latin, that so many other languages are based on, it will help people identify root words and origins to be more adept linguists.
