Should we have a single global language?
There is no way to implement this idea without totalitarianism.
The imposition of a majority language on minority peoples has been done over and over during the colonial period. It is, without exception, violent, coercive, and destructive. It created generational trauma that continues to be felt even today.
Actually, the creation of a new language would mean a lot of flexibility for it's creators and could involve the whole world. Something like an open source project. So as long as the owner would be everyone, you don't need to impose it, but just propose it as an alternative.
Social change often occurs without the intervention of authoritarian regimes.
The way the metric system was implemented and adopted shows that totalitarianism is not needed.
If you make the language nice and popular, lots of people will want to learn it without being forced.
