Prefering the maze of bureaucracy

Do we have an innate fear of losing bureaucracy? We all claim to hate it, yet we are familiar with its convolutions.

Within the maze’s twisted containment, we become familiar with navigating the petty and having our excessive efforts casually thwarted. Yet, we don’t escape and we cease looking for the exit.

We prefer the dull corners rather than risk the jagged peaks.
We prefer the buttressing security of a system, choosing the intimate pain of common convolutions over the chaotic brute force of reality.
