Without an identity, people do not know who they are and as a result, do not have a foundation upon which they can rely upon to make decisions. In addition, their languages sort of enable the group to know what is acceptable within the group and what is not. Without the language, a breakdown in self esteem, law and order can result.
Furthermore, Chester Mource argues that if a Language is not saved from extinction, knowledge captured in the structure of the language could be lost resulting in a more improvished human race as a result of destruction of such precious life-saving knowledge such as what plants contain active ingredients for life-saving drugs.
