Failure in public service
Why do our leaders still fail in their constitutional mandate to deliver honest “public service”?
We’ve had a moral-spiritual decline since 1972, which has resulted in our current lack of justice, because of the “selective justice” that our elite leaders rely on.
This is also how we lost our spirituality — because of the gargantuan graft and corruption that Marcos initiated.
Isn’t the continuing injustice in our midst a constitutional violation of the Filipinos’ human rights?
Our current president started his campaign of extrajudicial killings from the time he assumed office. But nothing has been done to help the poor! Isn’t that treason?
Undeniably, our leaders today no longer have sincerity and honesty in their bones, only selfish ambition and unrestrained greed.
A close friend recently asked: Aren’t our greedy leaders ransacking our government treasury?
Yes, and the crazed behavior of our leaders show they have deceived our people. We should mark the foreheads of those leaders for eventual accountability.
