There are, contrary to at least one popular stereotype, some decent folks in the public sector, but you don’t hear quite as much about them:
While there are wise and good men and women holding office and an awful lot of hard-working minor functionaries making the wheels go ’round on meager pay and less respect, embedded with the time-servers, no-hopers and don’t-carers who make bureaucracy a bother most of government is dominated by the same Eddie Haskell types, snobs, hollow suits and authority addicts who ran student government back in High School. They are the lowest common denominator, and any sufficiently large enterprise will sink to just that. They are supposed to be uplifting my morals and yours, too? Really?
All I need add is this:
Beaver: How come Eddie’s such a creepy guy?
Wally: He works at it.
It’s a talent, sort of.
