Bureaucracy is a method in which private and public sectors, governments and universities organize employees to work uniformly and in a compatible way through hierarchical individual role definition. The video starts with a man who confesses that he was a bureaucrat. According to him, bureaucratic organizations are deeply complex, and permanent with professional staff of higher expertise who differ in skills. The federal bureaucracy in American politics consists of the Executive, judicial and the legislature.
The legislature bureaucracy includes the congress and senate house; legal bureaucracy entails the court system, while the executive consists of the president, vice-president, and president's ex-office. The executive bureaucracy is real in 14 different cabinet levels with varied forms of bureaucracies. The federal government also has bureaucratically established independent co-operations, boards and other small organizations separate from the national government. Lastly, the federal governance system shares powers between state local authorities and national government.
American citizens somewhat criticize bureaucrats because they are satisfied with them, and most bureaucrats only work in Washington DC. Bureaucracies also have bad images on American citizens and are wasteful. Federal bureaucracies are monopolistic facing no real competitions and use resources inefficiently. In addition, most of the state agencies are in continuous wars on which one to perform, and with more power. These hampers policy making and implementation process as well as wasting money. For example, the central intelligence agency faces competition from national security agency, defence or intelligence agency and other agencies within the armed forces in terms of power. In conclusion, leaders continuously seek to expand their agency budgets.
