I hate it when people inject their own political bias into my statements, thereby misinterpreting them before they proceed to knock the strawman down. It's such a waste of time for all involved.

That statement included no specific reason for widespread adoption. I merely said that if people wish to use bitcoin for whatever reason, then I hope that they succeed. Whether they use it for convenience (the many) or for principle (the very few), I care not. Their reasons for using it are irrelevant. What matters in the long run is that consenting adults are allowed to do as they wish without interference from meddlesome third parties. That is all.
