Should we have a single global language?
A global language to be understood by all would not succeed in its mission due to practical impossibilities.
Even if you did create a global language and make it mandatory, not every member of the human race would be able or willing to learn it.
Over time, you would get regional and social varieties of the global language, making its original purpose futile.
Words cannot translate perfectly across different populations, due to diversity of lived experience and lexical needs.
A language is only universal if all people can use it universally. Deaf people use a visual manual language, sign language, and Blind people use a spoken language and Braille. It is not possible for a language to be universal for all because people use languages differently.
The creation of a single global language is not possible, because it is too difficult to reach every individual with this concept.
It is easy to crystal-ball the failure of anything, it doesn't constitute an argument.
Esperanto is proof that an efficient, global language can be developed.
