Also, with regard to the mega donations being tone-deaf, I think today no matter what you say, depending on who you are, someone will be offended. And billionaires don't get much sympathy. That said, there are arguments to be made for both disclosing and not disclosing the identity of mega donations. I think Young-mi sort of spoke in favor of anonymity, but the case could be made that François-Henri Pinault's maybe have nudged Bernard Arnault or Lillian Bettancourt or someone else to make a contribution as Bill Gates may have done for Warren Buffet. That individuals are able to amass such wealth in the first place is a separate issue.
