If you have lived with bureaucracy as long as I have you get used to it and eventually understand how it works for the common good.
In France when you initially arrive to live here it all seems a bit pointless but it does work and you eventually see the purpose. They weed out the pointless bits.
In Spain I have equal experience and yet the bureaucracy fails to deliver. It’s there for it’s own sake and nobody questions it’s purpose or changes anything.
That is the difference. I suspect it’s the same everywhere. It’s called good governance and Spain deserves better. Not a wealth tax which is completely counter productive. History shows that’s true.
