There is a way out. I think the solution is probably eluding us all, and VP Robredo is closer to it than anyone.
She works to give people hope, and to participate in finding a way to something just a little better. I thank Will Villanueva and those who commented on his recent article for making this point so clear.
Former Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima said that LP lost the election because LP candidates were busy talking about intangibles when the people needed tangibles. So I wonder, how does one make a dream tangible? For it is the dreams that surround freedom, democracy, and the promise of prosperity that most of us labor for, and self-fulfillment is a big deal in that formula.
Nailing a good job. Buying our first car, and then home. But these things are NOT tangible to someone who labors without much hope. With no sense of having the ability to fulfill a worthy destiny. How do we make dreams real for those caught up in daily struggle?

Spanish autocrats are still in charge rather than psychologists skilled at motivating people.
So step one in re-inventing Philippine dreams might be to start building career paths. Step two might be mandated national service of two years for every graduating senior. Step two would see half of all young people going into the military and half going into government agencies to replace the lowest grade workers.Legal Ethics Bar Exam Questionnaire - Free download as PDF File .pdf), Text File .txt) or read online for free.
By Joe America. It is easy to get caught up in the negativity of a government of the crass, by the crass, and for the crass.

Building a hollow block perimeter wall around our Philippine lot. A first step in our Philippine house building project. Katherine Boo, writing in the February 23, edition of the New Yorker magazine makes what I feel are over-politicized theories on fences in the developing world.
