I'm losing hope of finding the article soon, but the key thing was that turning the other cheek and giving up more than is demanded by an authority had specific cultural meanings then and there. It's little-known that Jesus was not saying "be a wimp!" As I recall, then okay slaps were delivered backhanded; a turned cheek would be presented to the palm and would disgrace the slapper. Giving all your clothes to the one who demanded only your cloak would have the same effect. There was a third recommendation, all were creative activism in tight spots.
