Activist groups subverted by corporatist operators

Here’s an essay that supports the idea of subversion of activist groups by corporatist actors:

Anti-Globalization Movement Hijacked by Corporate Elites

“With salaries and operating expenses depending on private foundations, it became an accepted routine: In a twisted logic, the battle against corporate capitalism was to be fought using the funds from the tax exempt foundations owned by corporate capitalism.

The NGOs were caught in a straightjacket; their very existence depended on the foundations. Their activities were closely monitored. In a twisted logic, the very nature of anti-capitalist activism was indirectly controlled by the capitalists through their independent foundations. “
