Speaking into Silence by Merinda D'Aprano

Speaking into silence is a rather odd phrase, and I think it simply means saying something to give support or draw attention to a tricky issue when it would be easier to keep quiet or turn a blind eye, for a variety of reasons.

It’s because as human beings we naturally prefer not to rock the boat or challenge the power bases or name the elephants in the room. This is the silence we do not speak into.
