Excerpted from chronicle.com:
Consumers, as Sunstein’s utopia makes clear, with no need for a public. In decades to come, Sunstein writes, the choice architect "might draw on available information about people’s own past choices or about which approach best suits different groups of people, and potentially each person, in the population." So finely tuned to each of our needs will this future choice architect be that "personalized paternalism is likely to become increasingly feasible over time." Whatever libertarian slippage may be occasioned by the current state of choice architecture — where some serendipity of desire is eclipsed or ignored by the crude technology of the day — will be overcome in the future. Assured by the detailed knowledge the choice architect will have about each of us, each of us will be happily corrected in our choices. We will know that these are truly our choices, inspired by our ends, uncontaminated by anyone else. What we are witnesses to here is not a public being summoned but a public being dismissed.
The bolded sentence above is strange to me, as it generally equals to Consumers with no need for a public, but then there is no verb or any sentence structure there, it consists of a noun only and then ended.
How can a sentence be constructed as such? Isn't it considered a bad writing? I think it better writes "Consumers, as Sunstein's utopia makes clear, are with no need for a public".
