Probes pay off
Too much politicking doubtless harms our country. But there are times when it does something good, and that’s when it brings to the open some politicians’ secrets that, given a good relationship between political rivals, would never be disclosed and would thus remain unresolved.
Our kind of politics cannot therefore be deemed negative all the time, though we have been critical in characterizing the kind of politics that we have. Think of how irregularities would perpetuate if not brought to public attention. Imagine if nothing but darkness engulfs our systems. Configure how much corruption would deepen and proliferate if it remains unchecked.
But who can expose the anomalies best? Is it the media? Well, partly, yes. But the media is only good at documenting what have been exposed. Normally, the most in-depth disclosures are done by those who are driven by the motive to uncover evil practices, in the guise of heroism, albeit designed for political demolition purposes. Here, evil schemes and true colors of people really surface.
As we approach the time when the electorate has to be won to one’s side once again, such probes are getting numerous. Genius politicians have mastered this as an effective tool to undermine their opponents and, at the same time, to win the people’s support. It may be politics at its dirtiest tactic, of course, but it somehow uncovers anomalous activities that people should be vigilant against.
Fortunately, all this aid the people in choosing their leaders. They may not be able to select the perfect ones, but with the information they get from these ruinous revelations, they are likely to find the lesser evil.
