In this episode, I respond to all the questions I received about Esperanto and whether or not I would personally learn it.

Summary:

  • Esperanto is unlike any other constructed language.
  • It was developed with a political goal in mind which has persisted until today with most Esperantists (a minority are, admittedly, non-political).
  • Esperanto is a linguistic derivative or aberration of Marxist philosophy.
  • Most Esperantists are by nature, politically extreme in their beliefs.
  • It has no authentic culture.
  • English has made its goal of being an “international language” redundant.
