Then you bureaucracy! Those governments which *didn’t* have “red tape” built-in to the scheme of government constantly fall apart over and over again.

I’d think so, except for the inefficiency of bureaucracy.
Can’t think of a stable government that doesn’t also have mazes designed not only to keep people from excess growth, but also keeps powers in certain pockets here and there, to eliminate the possibility of any one small group of people gaining absolute, unbridled authority.
Why?
Those governments which *didn’t* have “red tape” built-in to the scheme of government constantly fall apart over and over again.
So, I’m not worried.
They make it hard for each other to run the government so that someone’s insane cousin Billy (or Cheng-Zhu) won’t accidentally/purposely wreck everything.

Even in stable dictatorships, they’re surrounded by advisors who hide information from the dictator, so they can keep their bits of power and they function as their own kind of checks-and-balances system.
