Short Aphorism

Once upon a time, linguists acknowledged that a language is but a dialect with an army and navy (my thanks to Max Weinreich for diffusing the metaphor, and to the unknown man that first had this illumination).

Similarly, the history of Scientology teaches us that a religion is but a cult with a police and a sufficient number of lawyers.
