Bitcoin needs latency independent second layers

Many Arguments can be made in favor of second layers to bitcoin. The most common ones are efficiency, privacy and speed. For a long time I too thought these were the most important reasons. But during a recent twitter conversation with some BSV shills rehashing fork dynamics something else occurred to me: to successfully defend against a majority of miners trying to strong arm the community into accepting new rules we need to be able to carry on without the ability to transact on chain (or at least for much higher prices) for a period of time.
