History of the Universal (or International) Auxiliary Language Movement
(We welcome submissions of brief quotations on early proponents of the idea of a universal auxiliary language for the education of those participating in this campaign. Although this can certainly include those who proposed a specific language be chosen, we are particularly looking for quotations from those advocating a global representative political decision on the issue. However, if someone wants to offer a few brief quotations or referencees from individuals advancing a particular language, even including say early dictators bent on world domination, that may also be of some interest to those interested in the history of the issue.)
Inspiration of the present campaign
The initiator of this campaign was most directly inspired to use this methodology of "each one teach one" after seeing the film, "Pay it Forward" on an international flight in March 2001, though other influences existed prior to this.
