Fullness of life for all Filipinos, through loving God and serving others

POLITICAL DYNASTY. Despite the Constitutional prohibition (Article II, Section 26), political dynasties have been a present staple in Philippine political arena. Many have pointed that such oligarchy is the root problem of all the corruption in government.
People’s initiative: New people power?
Among the many innovations in the 1987 Philippine Constitution, one facet of the fundamental law stands out among the rest, and this is the right given to the people through people’s initiative – in the amendatory process of the Constitution (Article XVII, Section 2), and directly proposing and enacting laws or approving or rejecting any act or law (Article VI, Section 32).
The common good is the “sum total of social conditions which allow people, either as groups or individuals, to reach their fulfillment more fully and easily.” (#74 Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World.)
“The principle of the common good, to which every aspect of social life must be related if it is to attain its fuller meaning, stems from the dignity and equality of all people.
How can the Catholic faith help not only Catholics, but all people, build a just and flourishing society?
The Catholic Church contributes to the common good by forming the consciences of the faithful.

Charter change is a phenomenon not new to Filipinos. And, if my recollection serves me right, it has been a constant threat to the stability of this nation through every administration, from Ramos to Estrada, to Arroyo, to the present BS Aquino.
