Protest without strategy is performance

In times of trouble, people want to do something, but as activist Kat Calvin points out, make sure your time and resources are spent wisely. Otherwise you end up enriching grifters:

So now we're in perhaps the greatest national crisis since the civil war. And grifters are everywhere. There are the obvious ones -literally every person in the White House, and the underground ones- the people becoming billionaires off of human suffering, see my thread here for a rage cleanse- but I want to talk about another group of grifters, the grifters in the "resistance".

Perhaps you've seen them. The new organization whose numbers don't quite add up. The group that gets a lot of press but you can't quite put your finger on what they do. The org that sends out a LOT of petitions. The fact is, grifters exist on both sides of the aisle, and right now is a really good time to get rich and famous off of liberal fear.

She lists five great questions to ask of any organization before committing to them.

Calvin runs Spread the Vote, which obtains government-issued photo IDs for eligible voters. Check out her work!
