How do we make a change?
I live in the Philippines. Everyday I see news about corrupt politicians, simple crimes that our police can't solve, simple traffic laws that our people can't seem to obey, stupid Filipino movies that corrupt the people's minds with shitty thoughts that love is the most important thing in the world- i cannot deny the fact that love is important but come on, love can't buy a family a house, and love can't feed 7 kids when you don't have a job (yeah, poverty). I'm a simple customer service rep working to support my family and I want to send a message, I feel like i'm stuck doing nothing while everything around me is in rambles.
I wanted to be writer, but when looked for jobs on being one, I needed a journalism degree. I have a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and yes, I know it is quite irrelevant to writing but that just happened because, (poverty issue, again) when I was in college, we can't afford a better school, the school I went to offered that course and I liked that best among the choices.
I thought of being a writer so I could send my message, I am working on studying again to get a degree in Journalism.
Anyway, back to my question. how do i help make the change? I wanted to change a whole country and make it better. Should I go and run for Presidency? that sounds quite ridiculous since i'm anti social. Should I work on writing a book? or should I just mind my own life and give up? maybe there's no hope for my country seeing that our rulers don't seem to even care.
