We must remember though,
that laws are the result of a political process that involves a great deal of
disagreement (among and between different political parties). In brokering
compromise, elected bodies often give public agencies multiple goals, vague
goals or even contradictory goals. Discuss and explain.
Itis a paradox because bureaucracy and democracy are opposing systems;bureaucracy is hierarchical and authoritarian, while democracy is egalitarian and communal. It isnecessary paradox because the American system of democracy requires bureaucracyin order to function. We don’tlike bureaucracy or at least the idea of bureaucracy but we want schools,garbage removal services, law and order, and our stockbrokers to be kept on theup and up. Contradicting as it may be we the people, democracy, need bureaucracy to get things done.
