Time for a new Profile. Times have changed and I haven’t — or maybe it’s just that times haven’t changed and I haven’t either. There seems to be just the same kinds of foolish behavior and self-interest as when I was growing up.
I remember reading about changes that occurred in the coloration of moths, as nature selected them to blend with an increasingly polluted environment. It used to be the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” that endangered our society; now it’s the wolves in shepherd’s clothing we should be looking out for.
Same evil; different vernacular.

Here are some other thoughts on non-profits: • Fundraisers act as if there is an endless sea of giving. The greater likelihood is that there is a limited pool of giving, and the more non-profits with highly paid fundraisers and staffing, and expensive administration and fundraising programs are successful, the more of that limited pool is used for “overhead.” This leads to a cycle where those who distribute the highest percentage of the funding they receive to the needy are increasingly disadvantaged in raising those funds. Historically, 100% of charitable contributions were distributed locally, by non-paid volunteers, to those in the community whose needs were known — charities are changing from a way of living, to way of making a living. • Should a Food Pantry that raises much more funding than it needs, bank the excess? • Should two charitable organizations with the same mission, and overlapping outreach, merge together and reduce costs for the benefit of the needy? • How long and how much money should the search for a cure consume before it becomes sensible to apply that funding to a more successful area? • Do people who make large salaries working for non-profits have any more inner goodness than those in other occupations?
