This rough transcript provides a text alternative to audio. We apologize for occasional errors and unintelligible sections (which are marked with ???).

We are trying to figure out whether we really can separate conflict resolution values from other political or sociopolitical values and to understand the other perspective better. There is simply not anywhere near enough dialogue with those groups that we pretend to not understand. We think that those other groups are all screwed up because they apparently don't believe in conflict resolution or injustice, as we would define it.
