The Quote
“The characterisation of languages as biological organisms that experience the general and natural laws of evolution has been used, and is still used, to justify the disappearance or minoritisation of some languages and the imposition or triumph of others, within the framework of a manifestly wrong interpretation of Darwinism, which is called social Darwinism and which involves the application of concepts developed to explain the non-cultural biological world to the cultural world.”

Juan Carlos Moreno Cabrera (2008). El nacionalismo lingüístico. Una ideología destructiva. Barcelona: Ediciones Península
