Aristocrats at Play

Public Employment in Nevada

[Y]esterday's  bureaucrats were actually responsible to somebody, whereas in modern-day Nevada, even a misbehaving police officer can sometimes not be fired because of a conveniently protective clause in a labor contract.
This, then, is at the root of today's bureaucratic miscondauct and high-handedness. As often as not our government "servants" continue in their positions utterly independent of what you and I may think of them. All too often today's bureaucrats exist as a law unto themselves, answerable to absolutely nobody.
