For example: A country has an outstanding problem with waste and is in need of an institution that will solve the problem.
An official Institution for solving the waste problem is established and this institution truly works on solving the problem, but at minimal capability and tempo.
As the institution keeps working on solving the problem and becomes more popular, like a magnet, it attracts the country's people and students that recognize the waste problem and wish to contribute towards solving it.
The people and students join the institution which deals out tasks to them, but the tempo at which things move render the benefits of institution's existence almost insignificant in practice and only significant on paper and intent.
And any individual who experiences even the smallest seed of doubt that something is wrong with the institution, quickly dismisses this possibility as absurd since the institution is well-funded, advertised, and regarded as a place of authority and as a trusted leader in solving the problem so there could be no way that there is something wrong with the institution.
And since the institution is doing something positive, at the surface level which is the only level most people see, even though in reality it is sabotaging progress, any individual who doesn't dismiss the seed of doubt and challenges an investigation of the institution or dares to say that the institution is maybe sabotaging the country, is quickly condemned and ostracized.
Sabotage means to deliberately destroy, damage, or obstruct (something), especially for political or military advantage, but the concept explained above is more subtle. Is there a word in English designated for exactly such thing?
