It does not mean that it is not good that a conlang gains speakers (Toki Pona, Ithkuil and even my feeble Rejistanian did), but the sentiment of a worldwide auxlang are to me unreachable in the current policital climate. That said, certain auxlangs are quite interesting from a perspective of how they solved certain grammatical problems.
