Nato Thompson (Chief Curator, Creativetime, NYC) suggests a radical proposal;
I work in a non-profit, and I want to clarify that the problem of the one percent being in cahoots with non-profits is extremely structural. It’s the way the system is built. If we want to change that system, we have to radically get rid of the non-profit idea entirely. And simultaneously, the one awesome thing about non-profits is their mission statement to serve the public good. If there is a conflict of interest where the actions of that institution do not meet that mission statement, it’s a strategic opportunity to strike.
