State of inutility
The choice is our own to make. The question is, are our leaders still confused about their constitutional mandate to deliver “honest public service”?
The problem is the state of inutility, clearly the absence in cohesion. For we today continue with our own ideas and beliefs so that we now fail to comprehend the truth given our own selfish preferences in hasty presumptions. The ancient geopolitical supremacy during colonization were but impositions that violated our own rights of sovereignty in the East. Yes, the friendly relations were but disguises that prevented sincerity and honesty. How can the situation be improved for the good of all when the hidden motives are devilish?
Aren’t our own Filipino leaders today now violating our justice in equality? Didn’t that divide the rich from the poor? Indeed, simple things in life are being
distorted for their selfish purposes—their rationalizing did create the 45-year moral decline from 1972 to 2018: The past presidents did violate their mandates by stealing from the coffers.
Have we not become hypocrites in our Westernized self-righteousness? Obviously, it is time our leaders returned the funds they stole from the coffers.
