That's good to know and consider. In your experience, can bringing up
human rights/democracy issues alongside corruption issues hurt more than
it helps? If so, when?

It's plausible that you can have people on board when you talk about
anti-corruption, but lose them if you mention democracy/anonymity, so it
would be good to know when to especially be aware of this.
