Very true, but it's more than just that. It's the fact that large bureaucracies tolerate and encourage waste, reward mindless conformity, punish creativity, and promote incompetence. And it truly doesn't matter if it's the public or private sector. The only thing that's ever saved a bureaucracy is extraordinarily good leadership at the top, and that's incredibly rare and usually doesn't last.
