Hi Tejas, thanks for the question.

A principle is typically presented as a rule or a moral judgment. This sentence appears to tell us what is the case. In that sense, it clearly builds up to the conclusion that it is unlikely that bureaucracies will be simplified.

For this reason, we can safely say that this is a premise.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you'd like me to elaborate further.
