On that score my wife Barb had a even simpler example in her explanation of the decline and fall….
She reminded me of her upbringing in a girls Catholic high school Our Lady of Peace (a.k.a. Old Ladies Penitentiary). In studying, Latin she and her classmates decided that “Latin is a dead language. As dead as it can be. First it killed the Romans. And now it’s killing me."
For my take on this subject click on Mark Twain for my review of Edward Gibbons The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
