The Banality of Bureaucracy

 

More insidious than hierarchy is bureaucracy.  Hierarchies have responsible individuals.  Bureaucracies are a diffusion of responsibility where people with little power wield it like tyrants.  Hierarchies can effectively enact great good or great evil.  Bureaucracies are middling mediocracies devoted more than anything to perpetuating their own existence.  They are necessities for the social weal that, if unchecked, would increase their ranks until they became a cancer on the country.
