    I tend to think if it got to the point Esoqq would not go any longer without eating, he would have had to go through Picard to get to Tholl. Picard would have tried to find some clever way to disable him or clever argument to authoritatively talk him down before he sat there and watched him prey on someone.

Tolerance of different world views does not mean you do not defend your own rights from anybody who threatens them.
