There is a similiar problem in the German language: words were
written in a way that they just produced a familiar sound. In the
faulty writing words did not show that they had a past, a root, they
belonged to certain ideas or circumstances. And this is also true for
hard and symbolic links. If I can't rely on the truth and meaning in
words or writings, why should I start to use them? I could take
others, too. Softlinks are rubbish. No past, no meaning, no idea, but
a great bright future.
The future will be much better tomorrow.
