In the future people will only speak Chinese and English. It is best if everyone speaks them the same.

If a dialect dies out then it is because it is no longer a useful means of communication. We live in a big world not a small village in isolation.

Disgustingly false. A regional language can also die out because it has been stamped out by outsiders.

Latin is not a useful means of communication any longer, but it hasn't died out. People are still studying it to this day.

> We live in a big world not a small village in isolation.

First of all, it's a small world. Second of all, if you think regional languages belong only to "small village in isolation" then I think it's such a shame your ancestors left you nothing to be proud of. The regional language is what made many overseas Chinese prosperous, sorry to say it wasn't Mandarin. That's why you see no value in "isolated languages"...Isolated is the one thing regional languages are not....No one prefers the language of the state over the language of their ancestry, but they are willing to accommodate both. People like you do deserve to have their ancestral language destroyed, though, since you obviously see no value in them. What a fool.

What a pitiful fool.
