This is the change we deserved. We deserve every scum in the government by being scums ourselves.

Another corrupt official has been released yet there are hundreds rotting in jail for petty crimes (it is not to say that we should free up petty criminals like how our justice system forgave the likes of Revilla et al). This is the kind of world we’re living in. We were promised that change is coming.

This is the change we deserved. We deserve every scum in the government by being scums ourselves.

We’ve always had corrupt officials. That is the sad truth about living in the Philippines. And it won’t be any different in the future. Why and how did we end up with such a dilemma to the point that during elections, “smart” voters have no other choice but to vote for the “lesser evil”?  The joke is on us as this is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. What is alarming is that the society has turned a blind eye. Have we turned desensitized? Numb? Hopeless for a better tomorrow? I won’t be surprised if Revilla, Bong Go and the rest of the merry men, will be elected (and re-elected) this coming election. Pagod na ba tayong umasa at wala na tayong pakialam kung hinahalal natin ay mga ganid??

For the past few months, citizens are quick to blame the media. I guess it’s high time we start blaming ourselves. For being reckless. For being a sheep. For being gullible. We did this to ourselves. We – as in the old people who still abide by the “kamag-anak ni ano yan”, “kaprobinsya ko kasi” and “maganda kasi yan bago” mentality. Ironically, these are the same people who clamor for change yet don’t have the audacity to fall in line at the train station or practice the escalator etiquette. We – a bunch of hypocrites.

If you value your country, if you love your younger brothers and sisters, and if you care for your future kids and grandkids, please vote wisely. This isn’t just a catch phrase anymore. F*cking do it.

  2. Right now people are intentionally blinding themselves because they feel that this is the life that they are destined to have and power are for the rich and it is stupid to fight just because.

    All I can think of is that the higher people that can actually give help to the lower hierarchy of the economy mostly do not care. Why would they be? their life is fine.

    Wait until everything turns into a huge disaster, we’ll get better.

  3. Firstly, I just want to put it out here that I really liked the article short but precise and it’s everything that I wanted to post in my facebook account so my relatives and friends can read and ponder.
    I still believe in Filipinos, I still believe in the “good” people in our government I know they are out there away from the limelight. I know they are trying to make a difference, I still believe that if we could just get our shit together and cooperate with one another we can fight this corrupt, fascist government that we have. I am very vocal when it comes to my political stance wether be it on social media or in real life, I am always open for “friendly” arguments as long as it does not involve personal attack and if it does then I’ll just assume that they are one of those hardcore DDS stan 🙂
    I always say this to my friends and even to my family (My father was an activist) it’s okay if people have different stand in politics but I wanted to “leave” is a question, I wanted them to question their stand I want them to realize that they are always TWO SIDES of the story. I want them to acknowledge their privilege, not every Filipino has the luxury of going to universities or even eat in the whole freaking day everyone should acknowledge their privilege because I believe we only have empathy for our fellow Filipinos then wouldn’t be here in the first place. We would not have this misogynistic, apathetic leaders, we have an alleged-rapist, action star turn president and a freaking boxer turned senator what’s next? A lawyer who shouts “mga bobo” every goddamn time? Daughter of the dictator? A selfie-addict president assistant? A crying machine police leader? Even our own president did not win any trial when he was a lawyer. What did we do to ourselves? decades later we are still paying the debt (which we shouldn’t have in the first place). There are many things a student can do
    1. Don’t share fake news! Be intelligent and observant in what you are sharing. Check the website if its liable
    2. Use your social media accounts to be your voice!! (your pbb can wait) Sharing and stating your opinion (check if its a dumb one, kidding) won’t hurt your humor im pretty sure about that. If you can share “please pray for Paris” im hella sure you can pray for your country too.
    3. Discuss your thoughts with your friends (boys/girls talk can wait) Ask them what they think, exchange opinions encourage each other to speak for the better good.
    4. Be involved. Join groups that can help you to understand what is happening and what we can do. I’m afraid that our beloved NU does not have nor do not want that “kind of” groups or clubs, but if you can find some and if you want join the discussion.
    5. Speak up in classroom if you can. (I’m guilty of not practicing this, just last week I almost lost my control over this “UGHHHHH” professor but I keep it calm and did not say anything cause I’m pretty sure he’s gonna take it personally)
    5. Cliche but, VOTE WISELY. Don’t waste your opportunity to choose someone who actually gives a f*ck for our country.

    This may sound aggressive but hey if we won’t do this now, who knows what they can do to us. Be vigilant and obsevant, ask questions and don’t be afraid to speak even it means standing alone. If they’ll call you Dilawan or what who cares I’d rather take that “tags” than to be called a murderer.

  4. As a student, a citizen of this country and a legal voter, I will help my country to keep on disseminating the facts about our candidates to become the server of this country. I will also do my part as a citizen to keep on reminding the think twice before giving our trust to the candidates who are said that they are willing to help us from poverty. The quotes and speech are not enough to justify that you will become a good server of this country. For me, we can help our countrymen even if you are not a public server but by educating them correctly in all aspects of life and helping to cope up from poverty not by getting their money just for your own sake.

  5. we as a students, getting asked what they expect out of school. Also, has been interviewing public-school K-12 students across the country over the past several years to see what they have to say. I feel like the teacher and the school share a similar role. When a student goes to a certain school, they all come from different backgrounds, different upbringings: who was home, who took care of them, how much they saw them, what their occupation was. All these factors make them all different. I feel like school should be a place where I can learn about their culture and where they came from and them learn about mine.

    Nowadays we Filipinos are being blind of what is happening in our society especially in term of our government. They are voting for a official that doesn’t deserve the position, many of them are being corrupt and they use their power to do crimes without being arrested. Also they use the money of people for their own need and wants. So as a student we should vote the right official that we think can help our economy and our lives.

  7. We as a functioning member of the society and as students can do a lot of things for our nation. It might be a big deal to think of what can a mere young citizen do for the country but our simple acts will make a great impact. During election day as a legal voter we should choose wisely on who are we going to vote we must ensure that he/she has a good leadership and will be honest when it comes to the money of the citizen. A good leader must never forget their people. And people must never forget what composes a good leader. We must always be aware of what is happening around us because sometimes we’re not aware that they are already tricking us and using our money for their own wealth. We are educated let’s use it to combat corruption and fight for what we deserve.

    As a functioning and educated student we can help in the desperate time of our society by being aware of what is doing. we should think wisely of the decisions that we are going to make and be more functional and helpful in our society like in our environment.

  9. As being part of the society if we are going to compare all of the persons who joined the election they always keep on promising without taking it for granted. Because they want themselves to be good to others and do everything for the people so that the people will vote and support them.

    Corruption is one of the reason why Philippines belongs into third world countries. And, When it comes on technology and other things that can make our country great we are left behind.

    So we need to stop corruption in order for us to have a good economy.

  10. As a educated student. I can help in desperate times by saying what is happening in my country. i will speak out the problems to this generation so that they will prevent whats the biggest problem here. because if we dont speak and everyone will shut their mouth no will be changes. Like in this generation many of minor are getting pregnant because of premarital sex. as early as their age they cannot take that responsibilities because they have no job. As a student i will speak out the no to premarital sex to prevent this problems

    we should think wisely of the decisions that we are going to make and be more functional and helpful in our society like in our environment. This are what we can do as a student by just saying no to forgery of the original paper of someone else it is a cheating in any form.

  12. Domingo, Ma. Nicole Frances

    We know that corruption is one of the biggest problem here in the philippines and as a student, I think there is something I can do to help the people to be educated when choosing the government officials that they can trust. And as a country that is known to be “social networking capital” or in other word, our country is known as most people in this country is using social media. That’s why I will get the chance to share my concerns on my social media accounts like how to choose officials that is worth it to rule us all because I know that using social media many people can see it and in some ways they would start thinking if it is worth it to give their vote to that official. That’s why even it is consider as small thing, I know that it would be a big help for all of us, for us to be aware on the government officials we have.

    As a member of a society, we should vote wisely, choose the right politicians that will be one in ruling our country. One vote of one citizen can make big difference in every lives of Filipinos.

    As a student for me the best way to avoid this kind of corruption is to vote wisely and vote to the one who deserve the throne. We should not accept whatever they can gave us just always remember that without them the corrupt politicians the problems in our country will lessen and maybe will be the 1st world country. So vote and choose wisely for this upcoming election.

  16. The Philippines is bending over backwards with its present government running the country. This government is jailing the innocents and freeing the corrupt officials. As a concerned citizen of this country, I am very confused and would like to challenge my young fellow voters in the next elections to vote wisely. Go for candidates who care for the welfare of the Filipinos, not for the those who only care for their own personal political interest.

    CATALAN, MARY ANDREA C.

  17. I would like to point out (in my personal opinion) that the very fault of this mentality of Filipino’s is that we are very resistant to change and we are not educated at the early years on how to analyze and decide wisely in terms of public decisions. People are afraid of change, yet, ironically, they want the exact thing. People say that we should change the way the government is handled. For instance, during the last presidential election, Duterte have said that he himself does not want to run for Presidency, he also said that he would kill and kill and kill and kill and kill thousands of drug uses/pushers. Yet, people turned a blind eye to this, in desperate need of “change”. Now, this change is occurring, and MANY, literally MANY have regretted voting for him, and wanting Duterte to resign! See, this is why we can’t have nice things. People DOES NOT THINK OF FUTURE CONSEQUENCES! “Isang kahig, isang tuka” if you think about it, this sums us up. For example, we see a good deal on malls/lazada/shoppee, and we buy it instantly just because “its cheap and most probably be reliable for the long run”, only to realize you have spent your money on literal useless piece of junk. This is exactly what happened during the Presidential Election, we saw a “good deal” on President Duterte, now in the long run, damn, we want to throw him away, but we can’t. MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT EDUCATED ENOUGH TO DECIDE FOR THE COUNTRY! People are swayed by the OLD TEACHINGS, People are blinded by the following an ideal without really knowing what it is about! But hey, I’m not here to disregard the achievements the government has done, but at the current state, the negative overpowers the positive. (and as the song goes, “Maliit na butas lumalaki Konting gusot, dumadami ‘Di mo maibabaon sa limot at bahala Kapag nabulag ka ng maling akala ” -Eraserheads)

    As a student, I can only contribute to the society by having an open mind, analyzing what may happen in the future, and through that analysis, make a befitting decision for the country through voting!

  18. The current social and political events here in our country is both alarming and saddening. What is more alarming is the fact that not everyone is willing enough to help in addressing this social and political issues. We think that we are doing our part already when we talk nasty in social media in order to prove our points in certain issues. Truth is, no matter how eager we are to address this issues, none of it will be addressed if we will not take the proper action in resolving it.

    As a student, my power is not as powerful as those of the politicians and those who are really able to address a certain issue. What I can do is to spread awareness regarding this issue and to encourage everyone to help each other and not fight for the sake of their sentiments. We should also be good role models to everyone.

    In times of challenges, all we can do is to empower each other and to stand for what is right. We should never be blinded by power and fortune. We should always take into considereration what is right for everyone and not for ourselves only.

  20. As a student, we all somehow feel guilty by not having integrity with our actions. We tend to cheat just for us to have a good grades and we cannot justify our actions for that kind of purpose. I think that to be able to be a solution in our society. We must have a deep love for our country, having the mentality that “I want to do something great for my country.” As an individual or a student our impact to society is too little and it may not change anything. Still, we can always start having an upright life and inspiring the younger generations. Not tolerating corruption in its smallest form and being disciplined in our words and actions. With the smallest action or care for our nation, it can teach people to do the same thing and be a better citizens. First, let’s start by being a registered voter, that is a step one in actually contributing to good or bad of the country. Find a leader that is not an all-talk, find a leader with integrity and genuine love for our country

  21. Protest events are a way for citizens especially, to the students like us and groups to come together in public to show large scale support for or opposition to a particular issue. Protests, marches, demonstrations and rallies can be a powerful tool for anti-corruption campaigners.

  22. As a student, I must stand out and raise the voice of being an educated person by the means of communication through the use of my knowledge.
    I will share my knowledge to others so that it could turn the table and make things right by knowing my mere opinions.
    I will use my voice to advocate the youths so that our side us the one who will hold the future someday will be acknowledge by the elders.
    I will use make and clear up the issues made by the officials, since they only bias from theirselves, why not let the young one’s correct them and see how they will manage and lead the world.

  23. Most of the Filipino knows the wrong doings of our corrupt officials. Every election the people get money from the candidate for them to be voted. In that way we pursue the corrupt officials to be elected. They even don’t mind how much they are going to spend every election because they can gain those money and it can also be doubled by just getting the money came from our parents.
    Me, as a student the only thing I can do is to be a role model to the teens and children that getting the things owned by others are bad. Corruption or getting things from others without permission is a form of stealing. And stealing starts from small things or small amount until big amount of money like billions of it. That’s why, while you were young practice yourself not to get others things unless you ask them to have it.

  24. as a student i will give them more time to think for a solution that will contribute to our country like for example the problem for global warming we have and they have to think about that problem that will go through that problem not for officers but for all people in this world to stop discrimination.

  25. Because of the political dynasty running in the Philippines. And the society where power and popularity is all that matters, some people tend to be blind from something worth looking out.
    So as a student, and in legal age. A legal voter, I intend to disapproved in any form or kinds of corruption. I will not hesitate to tell the authorities if I found something unjust or so. Because as people of the Philippines, we have the rights to choose what we want and what we choose to follow and the right thing to do is to follow what is right and ignore the wrong one.

  26. As a student I will raise my voice to the people who still believe on those corrupt leaders and Share how we must stop believing on those people and tell this especially to the kids this generation. Who are manipulated or brainwash of the social medias that has a lot of fake news. Like we must use social media to express our thoughts in a critical thinking way towards the issues we are now facing in our government.

  27. As an active member of our society and as a psychology major student. I really don’t think that those people who are currently working at the government deserves a high salary despite of their stupidity and being insensitive on some of the social issues that are very relevant nowadays, it seems like they aren’t educated enough to have a proper knowledge on some topics or issues that we are able to experience nowadays. Us students need to study hard for us to have a brighter future ahead us because as what our national hero said “ang kabataan ang pagasa ng bayan”.

  28. As a student, an educated functioning member of society I can be a help by being a responsible voter and by encouraging fellow young voters to choose the one that will give the change that the society really needs in this desperate time where the corrupt is the one running the governmnent. We should not be blind about what is happening in our society. We deserve to have our own decisions. We deserve to have change. This steps will help future generations to have a better and peaceful society.

  29. As a student i would like to be a responsible voter and i would like to choose the right person for that position and about the corrupt officials that bailed out from the jail is so unfair, because there a lot of people who spend their whole life on jail and they face their consequences and for me corrupt officials should do that too and they should be threaten like other people in the jail and the government should not give them special treatment, don’t let them to go out, they should be in jail with other prisoners and don’t let them pay so they can’t go out and about their cases it should be go in a natural process.

    There’s a lot of norms, counter arguments and struggles happens in the society. Living in this world is responsible. If I am a student in the society, the main purpose I have in my mind as a student is to played a role in helping strengthening a good society we have, using our voice to give a stand for the rights and to make change. If I am an educated person living in the society, the main role that I have in my mind is to obey and follow the rules and regulations that being implemented in society for the goods and helping other people to educate them for what is good and bad and what are do’s and don’ts pondering them to become a good citizen in the society. If I were a functioning member of the society, the main role that I have in my mind is to become strict in implementing orders for what is good for the society and in order for the people to follow the rules and regulations for the common goods of the society itself.

  31. As a student, I know that I can’t make an effect that much. What I can do is those little things that might affect the future for the better. I can start with voting the right one; By advocating some things like protecting our environment; helping other people; implementing and following simple laws like no littering to a certain spots or vandalism; keeping and teaching some youth to have a better attitude and more. I believe that we can’t change the officials right now. But maybe we could change the officials of tomorrow. By doing small things, I hope that some people can do it also.

  32. As an educated student and as a member of the society, it is my responsibility to know more about the person that I will vote in the upcoming elections, so that there will be no regrets if we know the people that we have elected. Having that kind of mindset can make a bigger change in our society because we can prevent having candidates who are doing corruption. We all know that the biggest problem that we are facing right now is having someone with the position in Government who are corrupted. So as a student I will make an actions that will enlighten up my fellow students and other people, so that we can live happily ever after by having a good person with a right position. My advice to all is”Vote wisely”.

  33. Corruption is a’ disease’ of the mind and i believe ‘curing’ the mind of it rather that fighting it directly will go a long way. The fact is that controlling corruption is not easy. If it was that easy then most societies would have been cured of this. As a student, I can educate myself about corruption, how it is caused, its effects in the society, understand it and its nature. Also, I will share it to others and educate them about it. It can be as simple as putting up a campaign in our school to educate people about corruption, and let them know how to choose the right person to vote in an election. Let people know what it is. This can go a long way.

  34. We are now in the modernize world, we millenials can use the power of technology to build dynamic and continuous exchanges between key stakeholders: government, citizens, business, civil society groups, media, academia etc. Create advocacy for the good change of the wirld and better governing.Have pathways that give citizens relevant tools to engage and participate in their governments and cut the red tape! Bring together formal and informal processes to change behavior and monitor progress.

  35. Corruption levels severely restrict the efficiency of businesses operating in the Philippines. Extensive bribery within the public administration and vague and complex laws make foreign companies vulnerable to extortion and manipulation by public officials. Favoritism and undue influence are widespread in the courts, leading to time-consuming and unfair dispute resolution, and to an uncertain business environment.

    As a student I will raise my voice to the people who still believe on those corrupt leaders and Share how we must stop believing on those people and tell this especially to the kids this generation. Who are manipulated or brainwash of the social medias that has a lot of fake news. Like we must use social media to express our thoughts in a critical thinking way towards the issues we are now facing in our government.

  36. Students are the future of the country. We, students are the youth that serves as the role model of the society and play a vital role in the development of a country because we will be responsible of passing on whatever knowledge we have to others. We should develop into well educated individuals that can contribute to the society in the future.

    As a student and in legal age, I should exercise my right to vote. Choosing a leader to rule decides the future of our country. We should think twice before making a decision who to elect as a public official. Your vote is very powerful. It may seem like your vote does not matter but it does. The future of the country is in the hands of us, voters so we have to choose wisely for one vote can make a difference.

  37. The personalist anthropology posits that humans are relational beings — interconnected regardless of race and status — hence, it is important that indifference towards issues that affect another person or a group of people be thrown away. Moreover, humans are in need of a close and engaged interplay with other humans in local communities, in order to thrive and develop their potential. Such philosophy also asserts that humans have the capacity to engage, realized in freely taking responsibility for their own lives, but also for their fellow humans in society at large. Personalism believes that it is when we display our freedom with respect for and in relation to our fellow human beings that we achieve real freedom for all people. Vincible ignorance, as defined by logicians, is the lack of knowledge that a rational person is capable of acquiring by making an effort. This type of ignorance towards social and global issues — crimes, calamities, issues, and others — is ignorance towards mankind.

    The courage of the students in my school in speaking up about societal issues is at its lowest. This is of deep concern to me primarily because nurturing the critical aspect of students is essential for our future. In a larger sense, our ability to think, discern, and act upon arising conflicts in our surroundings greatly affects the future of the nation. Given that the university officials — older, wiser, more involved and more mature — silence themselves regarding issues circulating the school, it is no longer surprising that the student body also chooses to stay apolitical. There are members of the school that settle with the institution’s neutrality; some make use of their own minds but are led to fear voicing out, and others remain apathetic as a means of playing safe. To break this stigma of neutrality in the university, I will initiate any sort of action within my scope as a mere student.

    I will not be apolotical, neutral, apathetic, and ignorant. I will use my voice, most especially in social media wherein I am of most influence, to speak for the oppressed and against misdemeanant government officials. It’s crucial for everyone in my age group to be aware of all the dirt snuck upon the intentions of those hoping to be elected or re-elected. Patriotism can never be exemplified without fulfilling our basic responsibility of voting for local and nationwide leaders. I will not sit around and complain about the unfavorable situations in the Philippines because of those in power. Rather, I will educate myself well enough about the platforms of those running for each position so I can come up with the wisest possible choice. More to that, I will take part in educating others, too.

    The Philippines is in shambles and it will endlessly crumble to its very doom if people keep refusing to wake up.

  38. We students could change our country. Jose rizal says ” ang kabataan ang pagasa ng bayan. If our youth are educated about this we would something can do to change it. If our society is together we could do something about it. As a Student, youth and citizen of our country we should be educated in our legal problems so we can do something. As student could change it by excercise my legal right to vote and to choose the right person for me. We should think before we act first.

  39. As a student, i think the best thing that i can do during this desperate times is to use the power of my single vote to elect an honest and God- fearing official. Moreover, I can also use my voice to influence others to vote the right and trustworthy officials because our single votes during election can make a big difference in the future of our nation.

  40. As a student, learning the systems and technology where most of the people benefits as of today til the next generation is a process where I can be a productive and well functioned member of this society. Through my path, I could raise an awareness and build an application where it will serve as a medium to be an eye opener especially to the young ones. We all are into gadiets, and techy stuffs but digging in depth analysis of the governmental systems and political affiliations in my generation a few were only listening, and speaking out about it. During these desperate times I could be a helping hand by spreading out a principle of discipline that should start within the youth ourselves. Connecting with what I am studying, it will serve as a device and guiding tool for that awareness to be spread out.

  41. In simple things, we can do better. In everything we do that is right has a big impact in our life and especially in the place we live in which is our society. As a student and an educated person I will raise the voice of the people whose always under the government’s power and easily manipulated by the candidates commercials. I will make an organization that includes the people who wants to stop corruption and In that simple things I can make change, because the changes starts with us if we vote wisely our society will be a better place.

  42. As a student and a registered voter, I am expected to exercise my right to vote. To be given the chance to vote is a privilege to impart my opinions about the present society. Elections give the opportunity to change. However, to cast a vote as a help to society does not end there. It is only one of the steps that I should take towards a healthy functioning member of the society. As a youth, I also need to address the current issue/s that the seasoned individuals need to know. This is another step to help the society. To achieve this, I must start with doing my part in education to strive excellence in a particular stream to have to have a powerful voice to lead my fellow youth.

  43. As a student and as a first time voter for next year’s election. We should be more observant on how to choose a proper person for a one of the powerful position in the government. We need the help of the elders like our parents, guardians, grandparents, and even our professors because we all know that they experienced on how to vote and they know something about what happen in our country right now, by watching on television, listening on radio, reading on newspapers and also, by the use of the internet.

    It is a modern world right now, by the use of technology and social media, the issues that happen for our everyday lives can be widespread on thousands or millions of people in the world. So by the use of it, we can easily influence others and speak on how we should choose the right person in a position, and by reading some of the opinions of other people might help us to be more knowledgeable. But always remember that think before you click because we all know right now that the modern world is full of big deals, every issue or things is a big deal for the others, they can easily criticize it even their words are worthless just to say something bullshit.

    Think and Act, Use your Voice to Speak, Observe Properly, and Be Knowledgeable.

  44. As A students we should learn to say no…. yes a no no generally speaking, because we know base on his/her background what an individual can do….. don’t be blind by their money…..

  45. I hope this article will wake up everyone’s mind. A single vote can change your future, for a better one or for the worst. How can you sure that you voted the right one? Oh dear, do some research. Huwag masilaw sa pera. If you take that money then you are giving them a chance to manipulate your future. Be one of the people in world that can change world to a better living. I’m tired hearing news about corruption, not only me but all of us. Vote wisely.

  46. As psychology major student and member of society, I will do my best to keep reminding the people who believe in this corrupt governmemnt officials that, be fooled by the sugarcoated acts be wise to know if they just wanted attention and political power. We all know who is corrupt officials that we have today, but if we help each other we can rid of those officials.

  47. As a student, I can help by raising my voice and open my mind to what is really happening. In recent days, people are intelligent. I can start helping by making those around me realize the true situation that we are facing. I can educate them by means of social media because modern problems require modern solution

  48. We should start the change in ourselves first before we vote and elect a new officials. Think wisely before voting. Stop being manipulated by those stupid pabebe words, with what they promised when they are running for election. Be the one to start for the “Change”. Because once they’re elected you’ll never know what they can do. Money is power, that’s why there is corruption. Money can do anything, money can buy anything. Make up our minds! Start doing what is right! The change starts with you.

  49. In my own perception as a college student and a voter we all know the main reason why we can’t make a change? It is because of ourselves too. Let’s start with the traffic rules and regulation just stand near the stoplight and expect for a vehicle to beat the redlight counterflow on oneway road, build a barong baron on the sidewalk, Buy a car without a garage and park it outside on the mainroad and ressist tne enforcers for towing their belongings. We used to live in our comfort zone and think for ourselves only Still keep blaming the law enforcers that they didn’t do their jobs very well. Secondly how we treat our Mother nature reflects how we live in our own houses a simple trash that can’t throw it in the 20-30 gallons trash bin what do you expect to a student that can’t keep the classroom tidy, can’t fall properly in line to the young ones who prefer to listen to papa jack instead of their teachers.

    Lastly what can you expect if that is the kind of person will vote and choose a great leader that does not know the true meaning of greatness. Some people do not want to vote because things will be the same. Remove that idea into your brain you want a change but you don’t want to be part of it. See it to yourselves why there is no changes after all it is because of ourselves too we stoping ourselves to be open and embrace the changes. If you want a change start on your self then in your home third in just follow a simple rules and regulation let’s see how this will be a big impact for a change.

  50. Filipinos are corrupt, it is already in our blood. By nature, filipino politician is an inborn corrupt. It has been written in history no matter how millennials youth wanted for change it will naturally exist during election. Therefore, as a functioning member of the society, i can’t do nothing as of now, but maybe during election i have to elect those politician of in dynasty not inclined in politics.

  51. I am not one with politics but as a citizen, I may have a voice to speak.

    Politicians can be decieving. They look like wise, strong and powerful to the blind eyes of many, but the truth is, their power is in the hands of us, the citizens. I also believe that these mistakes were are the kind of mistakes we have to admit. We are the one’s who voted for them in some petty reasons like “artista yan idol ko yan” and “kalalawigan ko yan”. We must legit learn to pick a better leader that will not only bring success to this nation, but also bring peace and prosperity.

  52. We must start by saying NO to simple cheating and stealing, we are in a modernized world, as millenials we can use the power of technology to encourage the more people to the right and not the wrong.

  53. As a student, I think It is everyone’s responsibility to help solve the problems because everyone has a
    stake in society. We should open-up our eyes to see the real world. In this time practicality is one of the best solution if different certain problems in our society. It is not enough people see the whole picture when it comes to
    society’s problems. If something hurts the society, it hurts the individual. For
    example, the problem of homelessness is not just the problem of those who are
    without residence. Their plight effects us all. Homelessness hurts the local
    businessman whose customers are frightened away by the homeless man living on
    the corner. It hurts those who have to commute to work via public transportation
    and must deal with the panhandlers. It hurts those whose homes are burglarized
    by the homeless man looking for money to feed his family. There is no isolated
    problem in society and each problem has a ripple effect that eventually hurts
    everyone. Even if only for selfish reasons, every individual should help to
    solve the problems of society. f individuals do not soon understand the importance of helping out in our
    society, the problems will become too great for us to handle. As a member of society, we should function as one not as an individual we should acquire unity.

  55. This issue is relevant in our society nowadays. As a youth, we must be aware of it specifically to our surroundings. We must know when to say “no” especially to those ganid who will able to victimize us, humans. We must not put our trust easily that surrounds us. We must keep our eyes open.

  56. At the present time individuals are purposefully blinding themselves since they feel this is the existence that they are bound to have and influence are for the rich and it is imbecilic to battle in light of the fact that.

    Everything I can consider is that the higher individuals that can really offer assistance to the lower chain of command of the economy for the most part couldn’t care less. For what reason would they be? their life is fine.

    Hold up until everything transforms into an enormous debacle, we’ll show signs of improvement.

  57. Living in Marawi City for almost 18 years of my existence, I’ve learned how corrupt officials had been lurking around just to get the votes of the people. All the streets of Marawi are filled with broken promises from the music campaigns of each candidate. With all the beautiful faces plastered around the city which I think, contributes a lot on land pollution. Each passing election, that happens. Much worse was when it’s already the voting period. Posters given to the people in line are also attached with money from behind it, Vote buying as they call it. Yes, I grew up with that kind of environment right in front of my eyes, but that doesn’t mean that I, as a student and an educated person will also be involved with this kind of practices. What I can do for these countless desperate moments in the Philippines, I would of course start it with my self by not involving myself into any of these acts. By not voting for any candidates who have questionable background and those who are already proved as a corrupt official. And with that, I could also use the social media towards awareness from this favorable matter.
