Where did Latin go?

Everything globally seems to point to the language Latin. However it does not seem to be spoken anywhere except courts of law and churches. Why is this?

I’ve pointers to Romansh in Switzerland being the closest language.
A quote from Wikipedia (not a reference, only a pointer to possible references) :
“Romansh is one of the descendant languages of the spoken Latin language of the Roman Empire, which by the 5th century AD replaced the Celtic and Raetic languages previously spoken in the area.”


Recently I’ve more or less thrown out all the traditional English dictionaries in favour of Blacks legal dictionary 1st edition and 4th edition. Blacks is the main dictionary used by law students in Commonwealth countries. 1st Ed. also points out the legal dictionary of equivalency in many other non Commonwealth countries. The thing is that a huge chunk (possibly half) of the definitions are in Latin. Why?

Unless a mandate is gratuitous, it is not a man-
date. Dig. 17. 1. 1. 4; Inst. 3, 27; 1 Bouv.Inst. n.

Now this stands up in a court of law in Australia as long as you specify to the judge that you want to be judged under contract law (The JurisPrudence of Equity).

Why are none of us taught Latin if it underpins the structure of the laws we all live by?

Would that mean that we as men and women can not even understand the written laws of our land?

Why is Romansh still only existing in the canton of Grisons?

Why do the priests etc. of the churches and lawyers get taught Latin?

Why do the law students at the presentation of their degree in England have the whole presentation in Latin when the country is so proud about being the origin of English?

Brave web browser – will it change marketing?

‘Brave’ the new open source web browser based on Chromium. With inbuilt ad-blocking and a whole mindset of privacy, I am wondering if it will organically change the face of marketing on the internet and thus the internet as we know it?

Most advertising on web pages is loaded with tracking. There is nothing all that sinister about it. It’s just people trying to capitalise on free data. However it has made a mess of the usability of the web.

Brave web browser allows you to choose how many adds it shows per time frame and whether those adds are ethical in that they are not tracking your usage in some way.

Many business people I know have given up advertising on the web for it has become too expensive relative to the return. They are going back to other mediums to advertise and doing better there. I am included in this. Bang per buck and per hour effort has not produced the results for me compared to offline methods.

As a friend in marketing put it “It’s difficult now to get past the noise”.

Once again the engineers back in the 60’s did a great job of creating TCP/IP (the language and structure of the web). They created it to survive a nuclear war and thus it easily handles any corporate or government attempts to control it.

So I wonder how the net will look in the coming years as companies stop ‘in your face’ advertising killed by Brave?
