Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy

First, there will be those who are devoted to the goals of the organisation. Teachers, lawyers , scientists etc.

Second, there will be those who are dedicated to the organisation itself. Teaching union, Bar Council, etc

The Iron Law states that in every case the second group will gain and keep control of the organisation. It will write the rules and control promotions within the organisation.

Bar Council–how to leave the Bar Library?

Who am I to argue with Pournelle?
