Denounce Inefficient Bureaucracy: Inefficiency is Capitalist

Bad bureaucracy encourages propaganda, greed, and a lack of respect for diverse peoples and cultures, just like capitalism. Like everybody’s mind, mine is like a bureaucracy, a sprawling mess of random thoughts, memories and emotions that oftentimes are left in an antiquated archive rarely to be touched again. It’s time I purged my mind of unwanted, capitalist elements.

Therefore, in order to create an atmosphere of trust and informed-ness, it’s time I create a blog for the good of the greater masses. It’s time to denounce inefficient, capitalist bureaucracy.

Anyhow, like most bloggers, I’ll love to see comments and thoughts from anybody who reads this. Actually, I’m desperate to see comments. Reading just my own propaganda isn’t fun – seeing the diverse, democratic thoughts of others is always enlightening. Criticism is also welcome, as long as you do not sound like a nationalist bastard. I promise that you will not mysteriously vanish after making such comments.

That said, I have received word that this post and blog are approved by the Imperial Propaganda Agency and the Imperial Public Relations Ministry.

Remember: support the bureaucracy of the people by denouncing inefficient bureaucracy!

    I tried to make a sensible response Oliver, but my mind was incapable of unwrapping all the metaphors. That said, I’d love to read your blog if I could understand it. 🙂

    What a fascinating piece, giving us, the common uninformed reader, insight into the giant mess that is bureaucracy.

    Nice! You made a blog. Although I do have to disagree Oliver with some of your points here:

    1. Capitalism doesn’t breed lack of respect for diverse peoples and cultures. In fact, I view capitalism as the democratic process in which resources are distributed to people.

    2. Greed and propaganda are not necessarily bad. Rational self-interest is the driving force behind capitalism and democracy. With rational self interest comes the ability for agents of these principals to act in their best interest. Propaganda on a similar level, when democratized, creates a free market of ideas that allows people to freely express their opinions and their own versions of “propaganda” that enables free choice and is the fundamental building block of democratic ideals. Just like the Democratic Party and the Republican Party competes for votes via propaganda, Coca-Cola should be able to compete with Pepsi in their own versions of propaganda so that the consumer wins in the end.

    3. Bureaucracy, which often contains negative connotations, is in reality the human attempt at organizing different institutions. I for one am glad that our Government is organized into a huge bureaucracy and that most corporations have some semblance of organization rather than having no structure, hierarchy, or order for us to derive some level of expectations because in the end these expectations allow us to make our decisions easier (stock market for example and the regular updates from the Fed).

    4. Capitalism at its purest form forces corporations to create efficient bureaucracies. Why? Because inefficient bureaucracies will inevitable fail for low profit margins and high costs. The leaner your corporations are, the better of they will be in the end. There’s a reason why Google, Amazon, Apple with PMs of around 20% consistently draw astronomical P/E ratios.

    In any case, cheers on the blog and here’s your first critical comment! 😀

      Forgive me for my rudeness, great Dictator, but how dare you pretend to misunderstand my glorious parody!

      How can you spread propaganda supporting the evil capitalists! But your word is divine law, so I must concede.

      Actually I’ll probably talk about something slightly more controversial down the road, so I’d love to hear your opinions, anyhow.
