Education does not give rise to trouble, nor does it cause opposition. It is truly the “soft power”. Most of the world’s population falls into the category of English learners. This includes those of many impoverished nations who do not have the benefit of computers. Distribution of English picture flashcards to the schools and libraries of these countries would serve to boost the diffusion of the English language.
