I don’t like government bureaucrats.
Actually, let me re-phrase that statement. I know lots of people who work for different agencies in Washington and most of them seem like decent people.
So maybe what I really want to say is that I’m not a big fan of government bureaucracies and the results they generate. Why?
Because inefficient bureaucracies enable loafing and bad work habits.
Because being part of the government workforce even encourages laziness!
And it may even be the case that government bureaucracies attract dishonest people. A story in the L.A. Times reveals that there’s a correlation between cheating and a desire to work for the government.
