All levels of tyranny and terrorism also have a friend in 'bureaucracy' to hide behind.

    Within the bureaucracy are real human beings who attempt to do a good job. I would not be here except for them. Nevertheless, the quote points out a real problem.
     -- David L. Rosenthal

    Bureaucracies: unaccountable, unconscionable, and without soul. Automatons that spin the wheels of tyranny. Yes, there are some really nice people over there at the IRS -- but their allegiance is to their pay checks and pension, not Honor, Truth or Liberty -- or even the Constitution. I can get along just fine without them.
     -- E Archer, NYC

    The ultimate bureaucracy is Communism where everyone is a full time government employee.
