Out-of-control corruption


I’ve been a visitor to your beautiful country for the past 25 years. No country is perfect, but two things about the Philippines frustrate me more than anything: nepotism and corruption, and in fact nepotism is a form of corruption. They both feed off each other and bleed the country and its people of the rewards they deserve. Time and time again I see the same family names appearing at all levels of government and big business, and deals being done between the government and those same businesses. This often goes on generation after generation. I have a message for all you wonderful Filipinos – vote for your politicians based on merit, not based on what family they come from.

    Yes, but who are the group of people who can accumulate more merit? The rich people.
