we’re off to become a federal government.
This reminds me of the election
joke (well, I thought it was a joke) where this old washerwoman, upon reading a
poster that said “Vote Wisely,” wondered who Wisely was.
Without benefit of an education and a
mind free and fed enough to be an inquiring one, the Filipino could care less.
Federalism can become just another way for the powerful to remain powerful.
Then again, if you don the habit of
virtue, you might well become virtuous. Of course Hamlet lectured Ophelia about
that, and we all know she went to the nuthouse and threw herself into the river
not soon after.
