From Wikinormous

It is not unlikely Sir Francis Bacon with friends created a tight little group to sharpen up the English language, grammar, spelling and syntax. Including Shakespeare or not, with John Dee or indeed Elizabeth I as the real instigator matters less(?). With such improved language instrument - education, research and development can thrive better. But the contrary is true also. Means of propaganda, policy making and mind control are equally honed.
