It was a great idea, pity humanity stopped at the idea/first draft and did not perfect it.
If you're referring to Esperanto as the first draft of an international language, perhaps you should be glad you're not learning Volapük, which came before Esperanto. (And many of whose adherents jumped ship once Esperanto appeared on the scene.)
Very interesting, especially in light of the issues facing esperanto. Thank you.
Oh the humanity.
Getting a tad defensive?
