I see more than the two choices you discussed: ignore a problem altogether or
hostile confrontation. I agree it is necessary to take risks to help others. It is
even more important to be able to look deeply to ascertain what form of help is
required. An unskillful response escalates matters.

It is more than a matter of agreeing or disagreeing, having different opinions. It
is one thing to behave unskillfully in a situation, quite another to defend that
unskillfulness and even more mistaken to promote it as part of one's philosophy.
