Story Behind The Art
A mob of civil servants stand amid a torrent of flying papers. Do they even realize they're tying up the dove of peace in red tape? The whole point of government—an end to war—is overpowered by a need to follow procedures. Instead of concentrating on important issues, a bureaucrat's main objective is complicating the simplest of tasks. It's easy to see why—the more complicated a procedure, the more job security the bureaucrat will enjoy. Bureaucracy is the purest form of self preservation.
