This is the syndrome from which Amnesty International has been suffering for some time, Dalrymple notes.
It is as if, he says, the taxpayer-subsidised human rights NGO at some point along the way
grew bored with its original purpose.
Of course, the sad change in the character of this once-laudable organisation results, Dalrymple points out, from the increasingly general belief that
virtue is proportionate to the number of good causes that one espouses.
