Sadly, this is true for any successful organization.
"But the more an organization succeeds and prospers, the more it is likely to be diverted from its original ideals, principles and purposes
Why does this happen? Because the better an organization is at fulfilling its purpose, the more it attracts people who see the organization as an opportunity to advance themselves.
The ability to get ahead in an organization is simply another talent, like the ability to play chess, paint pictures, do coronary bypass operations or pick pockets. There are some people who are extraordinarily good at manipulating- organizations to serve their own ends."
