In recent news, there has been a great hullabaloo about the Freedom of Information Act due to be passed in Congress this week. According to Leila Salavierra of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, “Under the proposed law, the country’s next President and all other government officials would have their hands tied should they try to keep government records and their own statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN) under wraps, especially when the public interest demands it.”

Truth be told, knowing what the State does when ANC isn’t filming just freaks the shit out of me.

For example, I like to assume that the deliberations on the annual budget take place in a civilised manner, with supposedly qualified officials going through a long and exhaustive list of worthy economic endeavours. It would really suck if that’s not true.

Also, I don’t want to know how much my salary sucks in comparison with politicians that I don’t even like.

Imagine, nakaligo siya sa dagat ng basura!

I’m not exactly frothing at the mouth to see the same money I spent on my college tuition being used for gratuity gifts, either.

Note to self: buy off the kids first.

On that note, why stop there? Make each government building into a giant fishbowl so we can see exactly what they’re doing at any hour of the day! Big Brother, in this instance, is not the state but those bored enough to watch civil servants read Abante! from cover to cover.

So what really happens behind closed doors?
