And as someone with a lot of “non-mainstream” opinions - though based solidly in compassion and empathy - it is uncommon that anyone tries to silence them. So you have to be more particular about what content those opinions hold.

We're dancing around this with abstractions because this isn't a political forum, but I believe you when you say your "non-mainstream" are based solidly on compassion and empathy. I'm willing to bet that someone who disagrees with you would say the same about their opinions, and it's possible for both of you to be be right because you framing the issue differently. You may say it's obvious that A should help B, but someone else might say, if A helps B, what happens when A can't help B, or that help leads to C, which is worse than the status quo. Maybe there's a different way to help B.
