The Dark Side Of The Filipino

The reality TV show “Pinoy Big Brother” shows our most malicious fantasy – the omniscience to boost our egos. The orientation of mass media illustrates our deep-seated inferiority complex – we need to see people scandalized because we want to think we're superior. At the same time, insecurity drives us to go overboard for the six -thirty news to confirm our existence. This is the reason why amending the Constitution will not change anything except the Charter – we have "A government run like hell" because it's part of our culture. As the song Man In The Mirror goes: "If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change" – and the first step is to exorcise our own personal demons – not the Haunted House of Representatives.
