The politicians elected in a Democratic system have little ability to formulate or implement policy independently. All the political theater that is endlessly tweeted and blogged about has nothing to do with actual decision making. The real work gets done behind the scenes by invisible bureaucrats working for the vast web of agencies that actually dictate the foreign policy of the country, defense posture, and security decisions.
Let's take the example of United States of America, Have you ever wondered why Obama’s policies look so much like Bush’s? This is why Hillary vs Trump is just window dressing. The actual power lies in the Deep State, Washington’s shadowy power elite, in the pockets of corporate interests and dependent on the moguls of Silicon Valley, whose data-collecting systems enable the U.S. government to spy on our every move, swipe, and click.
Drawing on insider knowledge gleaned in his three decades on the Hill, Lofgren in his book offers a deep insight into how the 'Deep state' as he calls it or the 'shadow government' of bureaucrats and officials do the real policy making, while the politicians are merely rubber stamps.
