Collective Amnesia

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Watching the news everyday, it’s like the country is just going from one issue to another – from the stinky ZTE-NBN deal to the heart wrenching rice crisis to skyrocketing food prices and power rates to the Meralco tug-of-war – without anything being resolved. An old issue rolls out and a new one rolls in, we stand before it riveted with fleeting indignation shortly replaced by reluctant resignation and apathy; then a fresh issue rolls in again stealing the spotlight from the previous one, and we respond with collective amnesia. This vicious cycle, otherwise known as the normal Filipino way of life, continues unabated.
