Do Safe Organizations Get Things Done?

-- by Dave Johnson

Jack & Jill Politics' Jill Tbman writes about how the NAACP is old and slow, in The NAACP Doesn’t Care About Black People - Jack & Jill Politics. I wonder if the problem with so many old and slow "issue organizations," so often DC-based, all with tons of money, might be that after they get established - and funded, and therefore safe to work for - the people who take over are more interested in having a career than in getting things done. And SO often getting things done will feel like you are possibly going to offend the people who give you money. So career-oriented people won't risk it.
