      There's a huge cost to learn a new language to the point of being able
      to think differently. Why not learn how to use Perl more effectively?

      It seems to me that you are saying: You have to learn German to
      understand psychology well. Jung and Freud were German, but the world
      of psychology has grown, and now, I would argue, it is more important
      to know English (another evolutionary language :-) than German to
      understand psychology.
