Daniel Wagner: He knows the Philippines more than Filipinos do
When I lived in the Philippines from 2003 to 2007, I was asked, what is the difference between the Philippines and Indonesia? My answer was, “In Indonesia, they have hope.” I came to the conclusion that in spite of all the things the Philippines has going for it, its people didn’t demand enough of themselves, or of their government. Political apathy and a willingness to accept a low common denominator of performance have taken their toll on the psyche of the Philippine people.
This post, among the rest, really hits the spot. Seriously, if every Filipino would read this and take it to heart, a good change will happen.
