Self-protective nervous system responses, tone-policing, who gets to decide who speaks and how, and how a classical Buddhist approach might not actually be the same as a social justice approach, because renunciation.

Here’s a lovely Facebook thread (with good links in the comments) that unfolded between Parts 1 & 2 of this discussion.
