Good citizenship

In Philstar.com – The Filipino Global Community, your daily source of Philippine News on the internet. today, Alex Magno writes that the Edsa People Power Commission spent a long time discussing how to promote good citizenship.

The question of how to promote civic virtues and good citizenship was tackled by a committee headed by Chief Justice Ramon Avancena, and composed of such leading minds as Jose P. Laurel, Jose Abad Santos, and Jorge Bocobo. They came up with a code of citizenship and ethics which was promulgated by Executive Order in 1939. It is still in force. You can read the Code of Citizenship and Ethics here.

    The rules on good citizenship is a very one-sided thing, all for the interest of the government or the state, and the normal people have to do all the things, work, taxes, sacrifices. What does the government do for the normal people??? I would be intrested to get a reply from you…

    response to A. Fungo:

    Of course there wouldn’t be anything for the government in the Code of Citizenship and Ethics–that’s why it’s called CITIZENSHIP. They are for the CITIZENS and not for the GOVERNMENT.
