My Take: By Matthew McCully

My Take: By Matthew McCully

I have a few choice words to describe how I feel about the notion of a language needing protection.
People need protection– from the sheer stupidity of policies designed to court the popular vote rather than address real issues.
It’s like the string quartet on the Titanic arguing about which song to play while the ship is going down.
Townshippers have always understood the advantages of two languages and the unique culture and identity we share because of it. You can’t legislate that.
And you can’t ensure the survival of a language by holding down the mute button on another.
You don’t scorch the sky to avoid getting a sunburn, so why hobble, limit and restrict the opportunities of a population in the name of preservation.
It really irks me when politicians act like puppeteers instead of leaders.
An election must be on the horizon.
