    Dear Christian,

    Thank you for your post. I really appreciated your connection to coercion. I was wondering though if you could be more specific in your claim… what are the “some ways” they are similar. Being more precise in your first sentence will support your reader much more.

    Look forward to reading more of your writing 🙂
