YOUTH'S MORAL ACCOUNTABILITY TO SOCIETY



Today, we are witnessing events unparalleled to Philippine history. Such are catastrophic which can lead to our country's confinement to further retrogression. Rebellion and succession threats, coup d' etat, oil price increases, spiraling inflation, deliberate commision of enormous crimes, institutionalize graft and corruption, incompetent government with subservient people.. These are the problems of the time.

How can we cope with these ?.. Ladies and Gentlemen: I, a youth, am lost in this maze of gargantuan problems. Solutions of which are seemed to be far-fetched and time is of great essence. If we don't resolve them immediately, nowhere can we find ourselves sharing with God' blessings of peace and prosperity.

Perhaps, you have noticed that I went directly to my point. This is so for I don't want to go around the bush and put my stand a mere rhetoric.

Having cleared my point, let me deal now with only one of the many problems I've mentioned and that is our government and people.

Section I of Article 11 of our new constitution clearly states that, public officers and employees must be at all times accountable to the people. Serve them with utmost responsibility, integrity, loyalty and efficiency, act with patriotism and justice and lead modest lives. Such mandate is exact and explicit and this is precisely what we expect from the people in the government. But are they ?

Country's march towards peace and development depends on government's morality. It has always been an issue, yesterday, today and perhaps, in the future.

Are we not what we are today because of the people in the government ? They are supposed to lead us to where we are supposed to be. There are responsibility and accountability. But, are we not totally disappointed with how they are performing their duties, discharging their tasks, and managing the affairs of our government ? Have they, our leaders, not already lost their moral accountability to the masses ? And if we, the people, are already fed up with our official's promises and proposals, inaction and ineptitude, mismanagement and miscalculation, or in short, if we can't count on them anymore, must we not make or take the move to put away this stinking mess ?

At this point, I would like to invoke the youth of the land. We, the youth must be activists. I mean an activism that builds rather than destroys; an activism of hope rather than despair. And as a good start, let us all wake up to lift our country into moral regeneration. Let's revive the tradition of conservatism, honesty, integrity and dedication of our forefathers.
