I believe your mini-epiphany has been reached by several other people
in this forum and discussed at length, certainly not in exactly the
same words but surely in a very similar form.
If you've checked the archives and seen those discussions, but still
feel you have something really original to contribute, I suggest
contrasting your argument with those previous ones to demonstrate
how it is different and worth further discussion at this point.
If you don't, I expect many people will feel you are just rehashing
something very late in the game and will mostly ignore your post.
