In the article, I note that those who were drummed out of an organization
for telling the truth about evil, were because they threatened the
organization's ability to operate.

In other words, they failed to make the case as to why doing evil was not
in the organization's interests.

Yes, sometimes one has to carefully explain why evil is bad.  It is not
always obvious.

(For example, the US soldier in Iraq could have pointed out how the
commander's orders were eroding trust by Iraqi citizens, and going against
the spirit and letter of their overall mission orders as given to the
commander.  Though, being nonconfrontational at first - sometimes hard to
do when faced with new evidence of evil - can help too.)
