A Quote by John Ralston Saul on language, civilization, and obfuscation

One of the signs of a healthy civilization is the existence of a relatively clear language in which everyone can participate in their own way. The sign of a sick civilization is the growth of an obscure closed language that seeks to prevent participation.
