This week’s column is about the many accomplices required to accomplish the things voters claim to hate.
And, join us as we embark on an effort to go beyond promoting partisanship in the coming elections, and approach the polls instead from the perspective of civics, and citizenship.

About us
About us
“Ano ba ang ibig sabihin ng pagiging Pilipino? Ang pagiging Pilipino ay ang pagtatalaga natin ng ating sarili sa Proyekto ng Pilipinas—at ang Proyekto ng Pilipinas ay isang demokratikong proyekto.”
As we approach the 2022 Elections, let us dive deeper into Civics discussion and understand better our roles and responsibilities as Filipino citizens. Join Fr. Tito Caluag and his friendly trio of distinguished thinkers—Dr. Leloy Claudio, Manolo Quezon, and Carlo Santiago—as they go back to the beginning. What does the whole electoral process look like? We examine the filing of candidacy to the unofficial and official campaign periods, the importance of the youth vote, and our duty in the democratic exercise that is the Project of the Philippines.

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.
