It has told by the great Tamil activist Periyar that "Tamil is World's oldest living barbarian language" and similarly "Kannada is World's oldest civilized language" because of its clarity in scripts and its phenomenal contribution to Sangam literature(one of the oldest available literature)

Tamil is World's oldest living barbarian language.
It is majorly referred so because of the cruel nature of Cholas, their act of VIOLENCE, ATROCITIES AND PLUNDER resulted in calling them as barbarians

Do not compare Tamil with Kannada... Tamil is first language spoken by a human. Tamil's history dates back to 20000 years... Kannada is a brand new language when compared with Tamil...

Why did you write it as Tamil vs Kannada as there would be a war going on between this issue or you want one for sure. As far as the answer to it goes, it is definitely Tamil which is far older than any of the other Dravidian languages.

Periyar also said that if Sanskrit is removed from kannada, telugu and malayalam, these languages would fall, But not tamil!!!

Is there anything left for you to say about this quote?

Yes , I agree with Mr.Thamizhan... Bcoz Without help of Sanskrit those languages are Meaningless.... Anyone heard about "Naavalan Island" (Kumari Kandam)
The birth place of Tamil language and Tamil peoples..

Boss only language that can be even compared with Tamil is Sanskrit because both are indigenous languages and both are good in their own ways , there are list of Tamil words which is used by so many world languages

STOP being bias and learn about you own language and its roots properly and you will realize that Tamil is mother language.

Please do not compare Kannada with Tamil . It is INSULT to the sensibility .
