The Long View Context: The Two Campaigns – Manuel L. Quezon III
Season ender of #ProyektoPilipino
Historically, 2 out of 10 voters change their minds on election day.
We are just a few more days away from May 9, but many remain on the fence about their local and national bets. While this has been one of the most colorful and chaotic campaigns in recent history, there is still time to rectify the fake news that has tainted many decisions, there is still time to weigh your options and consider more candidates, and there is still time to debate meaningfully with your families and friends.
At the end of the day, Fr. Tito Caluag and his friendly trio of distinguished thinkers—Manolo Quezon, Leloy Claudio, and Carlo Santiago—remind us that the fight for our nation does not end on election day. In fact, it is just the start.
“Bata pa ang ating Proyekto Pilipino bilang bansa, dahil isang daang taon pa lamang tayong bumoboto. Kaya hindi pa tapos ang proyektong ito.”

I'm a columnist for the Philippine Daily Inquirer; an Editor at large at Spot.ph; I write on history, politics and culture; and I write speeches and have worked in political communications; and I used to broadcast (which is where The Explainer comes from); I also set up and maintain the Philippine Diary Project; this is a newsletter to keep readers abreast of what I've written, am writing, and think about what's going on as well as a way to expand topics and conversations on all sorts of issues. Ideally, this will come thrice weekly:
1. Every Monday: Electoral-Merry-Go Round, on the Road to the 2022 Presidential Elections
2. Every Wednesday or Thurday: My column, "The Long View" along with additional material/thoughts on the topic.
3. Passion Project Weekends: reviews and recommendations books, movies, and other things; updates on The Philippine Diary Project and other things I find interesting. If my podcast comes out, this is when I'd promote it.
