The point of departure for longtermism is EA, and, like other utilitarianism-inspired doctrines, EA veers towards forms of welfarism that are unthreatening to the status quo. This posture increasingly exposed EA to corruption during its growth into a broad-scale philanthropic movement.

EA shares the tendency of large charitable foundations to undemocratically organise entire realms of public engagement, diverting money and other resources from movements for liberating social change. And it owes its ability to secure the funding requisite for this role to its affinity with political and economic systems generative of the suffering it claims to address.
