Killing the Political Dynasty


After spending a lot of time thinking about the merits and demerits of the anti-political dynasty advocacy. I finally arrive into a second opinion. There is a big difference between "political dynasty" versus a what we call "a family of public servants". The Philippine government is too huge, political powers are split nationally and locally. A family with five members holding high positions in government is not sufficient to become as powerful as something we call a political dynasty. Children learn the values of their parents, and they inherit the goodwill and friendships their parents earned as public servants. There should be no advocacy against families and bloodlines of public servants.
