As Buddhists, we believe that Right Speech takes priority over Free Speech. Put simply, Right Speech means abstaining from gossip and talk which is false, malicious, or harsh. Write only what you believe to be true and relevant, voicing your opinion with kindness and patience. Avoid worldly, partisan, or discriminatory topics and remarks that are patriarchal, misogynist, sexist, racist, anti-semitic, pro-nazi, bio essentialist, xenophobic, transphobic, homophobic or any other kind of hateful views even if such advocacy is couched in terms of ‘discussing the texts’ or ‘maintaining tradition’.

Dear Manita – thanks for your respond.
Yes indeed – I have very different life experiences. Based on your above writings, no such of comparisons between ur life or mine can be made.
When undergoing attacks on life, not have food and water: it goes beyond words like “privilege” not to have faced such experiences.
In my early life I had some Great Examples which I used to face and overcome awful deeds.
That’s why I don’t feel you can say “we”.
Your “we” does not include me.
That’s why the above about “filling in for others, letting go of the Me”, etc. is writing in respect for you.
And also why sometimes I like to talk about Love, Compassion, etc. on a deep level and respond to messages which connect to my heart.
Have a good week, hopefully no trains are delayed and enjoy idmt!
