August 26 One Million People March… Only The Beginning, I Hope

I’m writing this in a rush and will be headed out to cover the August 26 Million People March in a few minutes.

While I’ve read so many articles on what people say it is or will be, I am still trying to resist any attempt to frame it in any way.  As of now, the only way I can describe it is a collective physical expression of outrage over a number of issues — only one of which is Pork Barrel Corruption.

I think the biggest scapegoat that people are trying to banish is the government that they created by their misguided actions and the passive participation with anything with a cute slogan.

What the gathering really outlines is the fact that most Filipinos haven’t understood this one simple idea: You get the government that you deserve.

It seems the only time that people participate in democratic governance is when (1) there is an election and (2) when there is a scandal.

Of course, I really don’t need to be at Luneta to see this event because TV networks are going to cover this and most people can probably watch the whole thing unfold in the comfort  (as well as safety) of their own homes.

But then again, nothing beats seeing things “live” and unframed by the television.

(Note: I’ll will be on Twitter  throughout the whole thing, so follow me if you want to.)

well, I hope more people, like me, will go to Luneta not because of inggit because of the way the Napoles’ live. I go to Luneta because I am so mad that the taxes that I had been paying and continue to pay is not going to where it is supposed to be going. I go to Luneta because I want government people to spend the taxes I pay for service to the poor and not put it in the pockets of the privilege few. I go to Luneta because I want corruption to end. I want good government and… Read more »

I agree with you that the people deserve the government they get. But this is true only when the electorate is mature and literate enough to understand the real issues of governance. In the Philippines, where 70% of the people live in poverty, the voters are easily swayed by the hollow promises of the policiticans during election time, not to mention all forms of vote buying schemes offered to them. Votes are mostly based on the popularity of the candidate and not on integrity and the candidate’s capability to deliver results. Thus, most of these policticans, once voted to their… Read more »

I don’t think it’s about maturity and literacy per se and your own post even attest to that. It’s more on economics or lack of it. Poor people can be easily manipulated. Their decision making power is subject to open bidding. The cry of the hungry stomach is stronger than the cry for wisdom in times of need.

I don’t buy those comments about voting intelligently and that people should be matured enough, literate enough to comprehend the consequence of their voting rights, etc. In essence, that’s the idea but in reality, there’s more to it than that.

I don’t think going to Luneta will stop or end corruption. Not even a march by millions of people. Nothing can ever stop corruption but it can be minimized or controlled to a certain extent. It can be reduced from the level of ‘business as usual’ to ‘risky business’. I can suggest lots of ideas, which has already been said by others years and years ago, to solve/contain corruption but I would just summarize it for space saving purposes.

I did not say the present leadership is not capable but I don’t mind if you misinterpret it just the same. So what if ‘3 high gov’t. officials were removed’? Did corruption go away? Was it eradicated because of that?

Three years is a short time to see result against corruption but I expect people either facing charges or going to jail and serving time by now.

One thing I’m sure of, corruption will not be resolved under the present leadership and if you think that’s an insult to the chief executive, savor it.

The gathering/scandal has already achieved a modicum of success by creating a heightened sense of awareness, education, and a more circumspect view of politics which hopefully might translate into more personal responsibility over time, and contribute to a positive change in electoral apathy.

Exactly! I’d like to believe that PeNoy doesn’t have much ambition, he doesn’t really like money that much. I think its safe to say that he wants to take it easy, no heavy responsibility, pa-shooting-shooting, tagay with the barkadas, play station with pamangkins – that’s why he’s still a bachelor at his age. Its the Kamag-Anak Inc who spotted the opportunity last presidential election and he has an obligation to fulfill.

Do you think PeNoy & those who has “utang na loob” will allow the 26yrs+ Aquino legacy down the drain? A martial law can be easily justified in the future history of the Failippines – a guaranteed business to EyBeeEs and wave a lot of cash to the historians.

I agree not because he and his family was a victim of martial law but because it is really impossible at the present circumstances to even entertain the idea of martial law.

Maybe what we need is an intelligent congress. Intelligence correlates with being able to look at one’s self broadly and more abstractly, rather than focusing on things in a tangible, personal level and focusing on personal interest.

Maybe a conscientious and God-fearing people in gov’t. and a determined and principled populace would make a difference.

It’s really sad that the country that has a strong religious (Catholic) institution who oftentimes dip it’s fingers into politics doesn’t seem to have a traction nor influence on how to combat corruption. Worse, they too, in numerous occasions gets to be linked on corruption cases. So sad.

Some of the opportunist politicians, like Aquino, will jump on the million march bandwagon. Identify themselves with the marchers, and claim it as their own. The best solution is to eliminate Aquino’s Pork Barrel. And his power to allocate these Pork Barrel to politicians. It is used as a source of large scale corruption.

He said that he’s going to abolish pork barrel. In fact, he’s going to give money only to his cohorts. I’m sure the opposition members will either receive a little or nothing at all.
