I know you're just being cheeky, but I don't believe that "knowing latin" == "educated", same for its corollary.

Knowing Latin may not be identical to having an education. But without Latin, you simply do not have access to over a millennium of pre-Enlightenment written material, which may seriously warp your view of Western culture.

It's the other way; si hoc legere scis nimium eruditionis habes.

Siue, nimium linguam latinam diligis. Eruditio nunc mera charta est.
