As others have pointed out before: 
This is not the case with many successful NGOs for the reasons mentioned
several times.

This is your opinion on how an organisation lobbying for Free Software should 
work, but not mine (and as far as I can say I am in agreement with the 
majority of people that build up, run and contribute to FSFE).

It seems you are unhappy with FSFE. You have voiced it multiple times,
it did not resonate a lot. Please do not repeat it more often,
it won't change people's view if it hasn't by now.
