Is the solution to "coding a better government" really to be bureaucratically active, or is it to tone down bureaucracy?

I think the real problem is that there's too much bureaucracy in the government, and really in everything. There's too many rules and loopholes to go through, that it just makes life much more inconvenient. America claims to be about freedom, but I feel very limited in what I can do because of all of this bureaucracy, however I don't believe it should be completely painted out of the picture. Everything should be taken in moderation. I also think that social change comes from real political activism. Rosa Parks and Gandhi weren't bureaucratic activists, yet they seemed to have made a very large impact on their societies.
