#Philippines a democracy? More like maling akala!


Many of our politicians come from the so called "upper class", and is often out of touch of their constituents' reality, apart from having a mere theoretical concept of it.

In democratic countries with a mature tradition of democracy, many members of government often come from the class the represent the electorate. If the society is composed mostly of middle class, then the government make-up is similar.

Ang problema natin sa Pilipinas ay maling akala na "demokratiko" na tayo dahil nakakaboto (o nabibili) ang mga tao at mayroon daw kalayaang mamahayag (kund hindi man naimpluwensiya ng mga media handlers ang mga pinagsasabi o pinagsusulat nila). Ang estado din daw ay hiwalay sa simbahan, pero hinihingi pa din ng mga politiko ang basbas nila.

Ang masaklap pa, mukhang hindi pa rin natututo ang ang ating mga kababayan. (At ang marami sa mga natuto ay matagal ng lumisan at nangibang bayan.)
