> what exactly is the point of different languages anymore?

True. This is why I will be teaching my children Basque and Basque only.

New languages might have originally emerged due to separation, but that doesn't mean lack of separation will cause already existing languages to go away.

Not Basque and Spanish? Or Basque an English? Or Basque and some Chinese language?

Nope! If we don't need different languages anymore, Basque only.
