Name that story

Postby Bartleby on Sunday, 06 July 2014, 12:22 pm

It popped into my mind while reading a critique of current politics:
A story about a mandarin who preserves the perfect status quo by
executing an innovator, a man who has build a bamboo hang-glider.
and I cannot for the life of me recall title or author:
Ballard, Clarke, Cordwainer Smith ? Please help.
Thanks in advance - Bartleby
