On Noynoy

Food for thought. Text messages from my mentor and former Department Chair, Clem Camposano (Director of the Institute of Political Economy at the University of Asia and the Pacific):

Anyone who shines on borrowed light should have the common sense not to plunge into the dark and forbidding pit of presidential politics.

Aside from good vs evil, other equally plausible dyads: from the poor vs. from the rich, astute vs. naive, competent vs. incompetent, masipag vs. tamad, talagang may kakayahan vs. may pangalan lang, self-made vs. privileged, his own man vs. a puppet, genuine leader vs. figure head, reality vs. illusion, practical politics vs. emotionalism.

My thoughts on the issue to follow, when I finally get around to finishing the half-written post that’s been sitting in my drafts folder.
