Problem

Crisis-oriented funding

Nature:
Special grants are being used to relieve crisis situations that result from the present malfunctions of the social process, rather than to deal with those malfunctions in a more future-oriented manner. They frequently operate, therefore, to maintain the current ideas of those granting the funds as to what a normal, stable social situation should be. This results in sustaining a basically unhealthy dysfunctional system and does not allow the release of new visions or new and innovative models into the social stream. The result is often a patching up of the very deteriorating and dehumanizing social systems that are crying out for fundamental change and radical reordering.
