Radical resistance instructions, or, you've been punked
I came across this set of “New Years Resolutions forRadical Resistance”. The piece on Medium is written in such a manner as to make you wonder if you’re being punked (point 8), or if the speaker means it.
There is something to the idea that if better-off people don’t give back very visibly, others may have no reason not to express their indignation about the meaningless of what is happening on floors above them. Particularly offputting is the idea of reverse targeting: that you have to pick out people who deserve your generosity based on race.
