Unwisely, I opened up Instagram for the first time in a while and saw a post by some executive of Unicef in a very polished and clearly expensive studio photo. I look on her profile and see a bunch of pictures of an extremely glamorous Manhattanite's life--yet this woman is on the payroll for Unicef.
I'm sure many on this forum have seen this: people working at NGOs or government organizations making a handsome salary while virtue signaling how they're saving the world while really doing little to nothing to actually make lives better. The real things that make the poorest and weakest better are things like better education, better technology, better rule of law--things these organizations have proven since the League of Nations to be utter shit at providing.
I used to think many people working at these institutions were just idealistic and naive, but I'm starting to think they're active grifters who are trying their hardest to earn and maintain an upper middle class lifestyle by politcking in arcane and useless institutions, and they simply don't give a fuck if they actually make the world a better place or not.
