The Philippine Disconnect

I will not write about what’s going on over there at the moment as you must have heard about the news many times over from various sources, be it in print, in TV or over the radio in all parts of the world.

The latest incident in which close to 60 people, of which more than 20 were journalists, were murdered in a span of an hour in an election-related violence highlights another aspect of disconnect in the philippine society. 

As I posted over and over again, this country which prides itself as a country of faith not only ranks among the most corrupt in the world but now exceeds Iraq and Afghanistan as the most dangerous country for journalists.

Is there any fucking glimmer of hope for this god-forsaken country?
