38. The Power of the Bureaucracy is Real
and very effective at defending itself when threatened. That is why whistle blowers end up getting screwed. It takes a charismatic leader to reignite the sense of purpose and mission that inspired people to become public servants in the first place.

"there is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new."

- Niccolo Machiavelli
