The latest Intersect issue is now out!

Philippine Democracy: Will it Self-Destruct?

There is a pervading sense of doom at the national level - chaos, 
controversies and scandals have rocked Philippine politics these past few 
months, pushing many of our countrymen to flee to distant shores for survival. 
This extreme negativity is blamed on the way politics is run in our country. 
The disorder at the national level has dampened the Filipinos’ spirit, and has 
made us feel that our democracy is on the verge of destruction. It has made us 
flee to distant shores.

The Intersect, a quarterly magazine from the Institute on Church and Social 
Issues (ICSI), tells us this summer that it is not Philippine democracy that 
is on the verge of destruction. It is elitist politics that may sooner or 
later end. 

Despite the chaos at the national level, the Intersect offers hope - progress 
and peace is slowly being reached. The Intersect steers your attention to the 
finest changes that have happened in our country and where they come from - 
not from leaders we have voted or rallied to power, but from people who live 
in small cities and towns who have managed to come together to implement 
development projects that answer their needs. At the local level, there are 
groups working together to reach common goals. 

If you are tired of reading scandals and controversies, buy the Intersect now! 
Its pages are full of hope and concrete examples of ways we can help our 
country reach progress.
