Thank you Agustinus! Excellent counterpoints. I agree that stoicism does offer some further analysis in how responses are formulated, but the purpose of this article was to point out the problems in shallow-takes and the way they can be misinterpreted to allow for apathy or worse, white savorism around issues of oppression, as well as acknowledging that the voice of those oppressed aren't centered because Stoicism leaves very little room for allowing a person to recognize and feel their victimization. I think that's an important part of the processs that it misses in it's jump to answers and methodologies of response.

Truly appreciate your reading it and your thoughts! Thank you!
