Degeneration of Public Services: A Strategic Commitment to Ignorance is a thought-provoking work on social and political issues, penned by author Sulaiman S Wasty, Ph.D. Despite the basic needs of society often not being met by the public services provided, the author argues that we continue in a state of deliberate ignorance without really making the improvements needed to meet the human rights of all our most vulnerable people in society. This essay-style work attempts to examine the reasons why the notion of Public Good continues to be downplayed, and puts forth the opening of a conversation as to how things could, and ought to, change for a better future.

Author Dr. Sulaiman S Wasty makes a variety of wise and salient points about the nature of public services throughout this compelling read. Though it is written in an academic style that may not be to every reader’s taste, the message regarding the importance of equality in service access, serving the social obligation of the nation to its people and caring for the populace as one, is strong and clear on every page. I found the arguments enclosed and potential reasons given for willful ignorance to be engaging and convincing, and Dr. Wasty’s thoughts are well organized and sectioned for clarity and flow in the reading experience. Overall, Degeneration of Public Services: A Strategic Commitment to Ignorance provides a platform that others can use to start important discussions regarding the future of the United States and is a recommended read for progressive thinkers everywhere.
