Bureaucracy In One Sentence

From this blog post, I saw a wonderful sentence which sums up bureaucracy:

They suspect that employees often failed to report lost devices because it would require additional paperwork and could have lead to an internal investigation.

So what is the result?  Obviously, another layer of bureaucracy and more paperwork.  This is because, in the bureaucrat’s mind, the only cure for bureaucratic failure is more bureaucracy.
