I voted 'neither' because it's inevitable. It has been happening since time immemorial. Languages evolve, become more complex, then simplify, then some become lingua franca beyond mother-tongue speakers, and some become obsolete and disappear. I don't think it's something that can be changed through the actions of governments, but the popular will can change the trajectory of a language.

My only concern is all the untranslated data that gets discovered. Otherwise, I think it's great that people are throwing away their dumb language for something more sensible.
Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
