very  astute but I would add that one needs to distinguish between 
bureaucracy and  privileged bureaucracy,
caste or not, as much of our society is ridden with  bureaucracy, but many of 
these rouitinised workers with 
their ritualized  behavior are not necessarily materially privileged.  Thus a 
particular  socialist party that many of 
us on here belonged to was ridden with  bureaucracy and small minded 
bureaucratic behavior but when confronted with  this, one of the leaders responded 
that she was not a bureaucrat and one could  "count the 
roaches in her apartment" to prove it.  Dilbert or Kafka's  characters were 
not necessarily priviliged  people.
