“Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.” Plato
Most leave politics to politicians and political writers until the next election season when we decide on keeping or changing those in power.
No, we are not too smart … apologies to Plato. We know we have to engage politicians to make them serve better and be part of democratic political process beyond elections. Our views matter. Often, we are simply too busy making a living or lack the time or resources to make our opinions and rants heard.
Politika 2013 — thanks to the wonders of the Internet and social media — hopes to address this especially for us writers, bloggers, and ordinary citizens in the Visayas and Mindanao.
Politika 2013 is …
- An online platform for publishing analysis and views about what’s happening in the world of local and national politics today and as the 2013 election approaches;
- A way for airing rants about what politicians are doing (or not doing) or about politics as a whole.
