The paradox could stop the collective once and for all.
Your whole argument hinges on this inane belief it WOULD have worked, when it's blatantly clear from later episodes it WOULDN'T (and in fact, the possibility of it failing should have been discussed in the episode).

Your opinion regarding the paradox means nothing by comparison to Picard/Data/crew/Starfleet's opinion.
Why? Because you know practically nothing regarding borg tech, as opposed to them.
I know plenty, and that they never would have allowed the program to disrupt more than one Cube. It was destined to fail.

What matters is that PICARD WAS CONVINCED THE PARADOX WILL WORK. He DECIDED TO SACRIFICE BILLIONS so that he can delude himself that he's always moral.
In his subjective forum, PICARD INTENDED TO CONDEMN TO DEATH BILLIONS, when he WAS CERTAIN HE COULD SAVE THEM ALL, Anwar.
And that no one ever considered that the program might fail or be ineffective is a failing of the episode for some forced "moral quandry". Picard SHOULDN'T have been so convinced, it was just bad writing. Nechavev shouldn't have been such a militant fool to think it was foolproof either.

That he freely chose not to use it is irrelevant. What matters is that thanks to them not doing so, billions were spared.
