The dark days ahead

THE very exercise which citizens depend on to effect change has become one of the most suspect. I speak of elections, automated or otherwise, and the Commission On Elections or Comelec.
The very body which stands as the last resort before justice is totally abused cannot sustain a high credibility with the people. I speak of the Supreme Court.
The very institution mandated to protect the republic and the democracy it has chosen to stand on is seen as a tool of its own commander-in-chief who has achieved being the most unpopular and untrustworthy of all Philippine presidents.
What, then, does the future hold for us? How, then, can decaying morals and ethics find a fresh whiff of integrity and nobility? How much lower can a people and nation fall before the shame of dishonesty and thievery awakens the comatose integrity and honor of the Filipino race?
