Not all people running the government are assholes. Most are. But, there are always, outliers.
There are always the smart people who made the wrong career choices and got stuck in the job.
There will always be the people who have to take a bribe cause they have to pay somebody else.
There will always be the smart introverts who "just do their job"
There will always be people who don't want to interfere in "others" work.
n there will always be the people who "may" call you for advice.
