Putting Public Service Before Politics

By Donald Davis

Politics is a term that has gotten pretty much muddled up and confounded with public service. In fact, the way things stand, its practically difficult to divorce the concept of the first from that of a business, career, or path to celebrity. Anyone can imagine just how unprepossessing that is. All those running for office should know how to differentiate and put public service before politics.

A whole host of services can be subsumed herein. In sum, its all about leveraging the welfare and interest of the public sector. Thats wide ranging, with considerations from environmental protection to healthcare. It all depends on what up and impending in the horizon. Of course, everything will have to be put to perspective. Prioritizing is a thing here.

As you can imagine, a lot of things are left to be desired in any kind of society. The worst part is that most of them are held up in supplication to government bodies, reasoning that theyre the only ones that are practically equipped to do just about anything. When those in power are basically incompetent, then that puts everything in a standstill. Everything logjams, just because no one wants to shift their principles and priorities a jot.

In democratic elections, the votes are left for the people to render. This avers to the great importance of wise voting. No one can bear to be fooled behind the smokescreens of false promises and other lies. Thats why its also important to see through the pitches of candidates, seeing that theyre sincere in their platforms and that they have actionable plans.

Generally, theres also the area of social services. This is an across the board term, really, relating to givens like the foster care system and rehabilitation centers, and so and so. Public telecommunications is yet another concern, and thats why some governments are in charge of the monopolies that cater to this particular operation. This arrangement does have its pros and cons.

And so we have mentioned services for the courts and resources like water and electricity. To particularize others, you have education. This can come in the form of free education or at least an affordable one. Perhaps a state college which is sponsored and supported by the government. This also makes a particular educational establishment more connected with the state, to a certain extent, and its up to you to toggle all the pros and cons in that.

The sectors which public service subsumes are many. In the end, most can just be pinned down to fundamental human rights. The political mother ship is responsible for bringing that about. In some cases, theyre responsible for supplying and dispensing certain thingamajigs, such as water. And generally, you just have those serving institutions from fire departments and paramedic groups.

Lots of circumstances are dependent here. From educational facilities and opportunities to utilities like water and electricity. Plus, you have the nifty services of emergency and police services, as well as general law enforcement. These lastly mentioned round up the applications which cities take for granted. But because of them, constituents do tend to feel safer, and society thrives because of that.

Prioritization is key. Sometimes, its just so easy to get around things, or else sweep them under the rug. That must never be the case. Along the same tangent, one must not skip through other developments without taking care of basic ones first. Political issues are always divisive and controversial, and they do have to be solved sooner or later. Nonetheless, that shouldnt be at the expense of basic human rights.
