If we had another language all our problems would be solved. On the other hand, if we had another language, we would not have been part of the powerful British Empire until 1931. In other words, we would have been a small independent republic and the Americans would have bullied us, especially in the period 1865-1917.

So we’d be culturally rich and sure of ourselves, but our standard of living and human rights would be like a Latin American country or the Philippines.
