    Yes. The 'insofar' isn't really necessary though.

    I don't know if you made a simple typing mistake or didn't realize it's an error, but you need a space after the comma.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
