This is the sequel to “Column”.Waran impossibleI wrote on the eve of the election (May 8th). Business world Published online on the same day.
In that column, I didn’t just say that there was nothing impossible —walang impossible — But we also confirmed that we will win — Magwa Wagitayo!!
I support those words.
During the Leni Robredo campaign, I worked with many young Leni volunteers. They are passionate, focused, smart, intelligent, agile, witty and creative.
Like Lenny and many other volunteers, my young colleague had a fighting spirit and belief, even if he knew the campaign was uphill.
Lenny’s campaign was set late. Because she first tried to unite the opposition. As it failed, she decided to hurry in the face of the impending deadline for her candidacy declaration. To make matters worse, Lenny has been attacked by trolls for years, with tons of lies scattered around.
Meanwhile, the enemy was preparing for years. He enjoyed the enormous resources and well-oiled political system.
Obviously, Lenny was a weak man.Pre-election survey conducted by credible outsfits showed that Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has a wide range of leads.
Despite the horrifying odds, the Reni campaign took off and gained momentum. She ignited a huge move. Consecutive campaign rallies miting de avance It attracted the participation of hundreds of thousands of people. The outflow of sustained support from collective action over a four-month campaign was unprecedented in Philippine history.
Even Marcos Jr.’s impressive resources couldn’t match Lenny’s massive move. Lenny defeated Marcos Jr. with mass mobilization and public opinion expressed through the press.
But the challenge was to connect the mass movement with the traditional campaign. In other words, fellow columnist Diwa Guinigund, “voting is fundamental.” Unfortunately, the profits from the huge movement did not lead to a large vote for Lenny to win.
The investigation suggested a landslide in Marcos, but as national scientist Raul Fabella said in a text message, “a miracle can be realized.” Even science tolerates miracles.Therefore, scientistsfic There is a scam in the investigationfiDens interval, usually confA 95% identity level that also measures the degree of uncertainty.
When we see a flood of votes, we are all overwhelmed. It was especially painful for young people. Tricia, a young mom and old friend’s niece, sent me a message: Titomen, grabe’yung Hopelessness. She said she felt she was crushed or buried in an avalanche by millennial Arjay, who had a fierce house-to-house campaign.
In particular, after a text conversation with another longtime friend, Gilda, who gave me feedback that my words were pleasing, I decided to share my thoughts with more people.
When i wroteWaran impossibleWhen I said Magwa WagitayoMeaning all the words I said.
Winning an election has been a long way, but the election was just the beginning. The election was a big battle, but the struggle did not end there. Despite the election defeat, I dare say that it is a sign of a strategic victory.
Yes, it hurts to lose it. The enemy had a big advantage. Lenny took part in the race with a big handicap. He had weaknesses and weaknesses, but he fought hard and gave the strongest punch.
We lost the battle, but one battlefiThe result of a long war.
Or perhaps it’s done another way. For those familiar with the history of the Vietnam War’s German Campaign of 1813, remember the Tet Offensive. It was a turning point in the Indochina War.
The Revolutionary Army in Ho Chi Minh launched a dramatic attack, but they were beaten. But that was the turning point of the war. Instead of demoralizing Vietnamese revolutionaries, they learned lessons, achieved moral dominance, and gained confidence that the US aggression could eventually be defeated.
The 2022 election is our Tet Offensive. We got stronger with the Reni campaign.
Elections are an area of struggle. And a new place of struggle-a formal system and street parliament-is available to us. There are weapons that Marcos Jr. does not have — the power of the new version of the people. He may have won the landslide, but the votes he got were not from the conviction. They remain soft.
On the other hand, we have courage and determination.We have the energy and stamina to prolong fiFrom ght, especially from our flagship educated youth. And the lessons we have learned, including from failure, will strengthen us.
Therefore, from a strategic point of view, we have won.
Now we need to integrate.We have to get rid of the luggage we carry and reject prejudice and arroganceflPlay around with some of us, fiLenny’s handful of rm radikal na pagmamahal (Extreme love). And believe in people, especially young people.
Listen to Lenny’s statement. “We need to accept the majority decision. I encourage everyone to be with me about this.” flWow. However, when you’re done, you still have work to do, so wipe off your tears. “
