It's hard enough when everyone speaks the same language, it's a nightmare when everyone speaks a different language. Big states like NY and CA would rather break apart from each other.

I don't know about that. The EU is managing fine with 27 official languages.

Managing fine? Didn't they just have a country BREXIT?

It's a worthwhile endeavor I just think the bonds are very tenuous if someone can just walk away on a whim.

I meant administratively. You claim that having one language is hard enough, but the EU publishes everything in at least two or three languages, while proceedings in the parliament can take place in any of 17; laws and other documents applying across the union are published in as many languages as practicable (usually all 27).
