Conrad de Quiros wrote on his op-ed column about the need for Perspective in light of Falcon that sank the capital.
When Falcon hit the country last Thursday, you could reasonably expect government to be part of the cure and not of the disease. You could reasonably expect government to mount a relief drive to assist the distressed, to take in private donations and distribute them rather than steal them (or put premature campaign paraphernalia in them), to not try to figure out how to profit in some way from your misery. When Falcon hit the country last Thursday, you had the comfort of knowing you had a government on your side and not against it. As you would when other disasters strike.
And you complain?
I agree with de Quiros. As I wrote in yesterday’s op-ed piece, it’s a beautiful day When Ondoy hit, did we have a government? However imperfect, we at least have a government this time.
