The same can be said to an envelope. When you receive a letter and say
"hey the envelope is damaged", it is too late. MITM has already stolen
the secret.

But you keep harping how your system is supposed to be BETTER than an
envelope.

EaSecure - about as good a givng your secrets to a stranger in a thin paper
wraper for delivery.
Not a stranger but a business whose survival depends on honestly
delivering the message. Not a thin paper wraper but a tamper-proof
envelope. Not for every delivery but only the first one - and after the
first delivery, all subsequent deliveries will be enclosed in "steel
envelopes" that nobody can break.
