Using LSP for a while now, of course, being also a NeoVim user, particularly attached to Vim's coding approach, I can't help but notice Microsoft's Language Server Protocol to be A LOT like Emac's editor approach to writing code. Was Emacs right all along? More so, have we actually slowed down software advancement by distancing ourselves from LISP-like languages, putting speed above ergonomics and marginalizing many would-be contributors that have more LISP-like thinking? I wonder a lot about the future of writing code and the importance of, at least pseudo, artificial intelligence in that future. As we all know how easy it is to write pseudo-ai code in LISP-like languages, have we also delayed artificial intelligence by distancing ourselves from LISP-like languages? But more importantly, IS IT TOO LATE? I mean, should we, instead of try "forcefully evolving" JavaScript, instead devise nem ways of coding with it that makes it more Scheme-like? This is a rent, but also a heart breaking moment for me, a devotee of languages like Rust, I can't stop, but wonder if my preferred language's perceived advances aren't only an actual coming back of LISP. Finally: it's heartbreaking to me that I just can't have a small sized Emacs distribution with Vim-like capabilities. Being actually able to kind of talk to your editor like emacs users could be a BIG improvement on developer's declining mental health stats.

ps: I'm not a natively English speaking person, please forgive tipos and other pedantic writing mistakes.

On another example of regressing for advancemente, the interested reader should read about performance differences and justification for it between grep and perl's regex implementation.
