The Pandemic of Crisis

Are we nearing a bureaucracy collapse or correction?

Let’s be clear on a critical point: the advancing point and frequency of systemic crisis has been underway for quite some time; as to the culpability of the Obama Administration and the current staff in Congress, they’re merely the most mature (to date) iteration of progressive decay.

There is no single bureaucracy, the VA being just one of more than 2000 Federal Agencies, Commissions and Departments of government able to escape the label of “dysfunctional”. Nor do any escape the same universal cause; when you reward failure success becomes unnecessary.

Imperial Presidency Licensed by Congress

It is absolutely true that the Obama Administration, more than any previous administration, has set new standards of tyrannical-excess in large part due to the activist-anarchist nature of the President and his staff. With that said there remains one significant feature that accommodates executive-abuse and that is the concept of “enabling legislation.” When most bills are passed thru Congress they are merely conceptual in nature and quite non-specific. The details of enacting the intent of the bill/act is accomplished thru language that defers action to a named bureaucracy who is enabled, by the very same bill/act, to create the organisms and regulations (as necessary) to carry out their interpretation of the bill/acts intent.
