What is the "greatest force for cultural good on the earth"?

The organisation's website is here and the quote is contained in this article from the Daily Telegraph.

The answer to this question depends on how you define culture, but surely more important than this organisation is the role of the rule of law which allows such organisations to flourish and engender "cultural good". A relatively stable system of justice to keep a tight leash on the follies of politicians and relatively free markets to allow goods and ideas to move voluntarily around the world are in my opinion far more important than the organisation in question.
