Ghettos and robohumans

There are 195 sovereign countries on this planet.

164 are members of the WTO.

28 in the EU.

3 in NAFTA, etc.

In the EU there 23+ official languages.

23+ job markets.

How many languages can a real human being speak to be able to use them (read, speak, write)? 2, 3, 4, 5? 

Language may be part of one's identity but Babel was punishment not a gift.

People from large countries do not mind that too much.

But if you come from a country of 1 million or 5 or 10, you do.

The EU has 4 freedoms, one for each of the following.

- Capital
- Goods
- Services
- Human

It makes 100% sense.
Language can bring us together.
