Bureaucracies and committees have a much firmer grasp on "reality" because they sometimes have expensive, authoritative looking letterhead on which to send "facts" to "citizens" (read consumers) to accept as true without question.

Bureaucrats can conceptualize things in such a way as to get around certain details that might otherwise hamper a program or initiative. (programs and initiatives which must be implemented, regardless of usefulness) They have ground away the edges of constricting parameters like logic, common sense, and practicality to such a degree that redefining the meaning of words in order to fit pliable, optional "facts" into rigid, logic-like policies is not only an option, it is the ONLY option.
