Maintaining Moral Decency

Being in a government agency where people are scrutinizing the way you behave and act on a certain issues is absolutely not an easy job. As for me, I have nothing against those who tried to help pursuing a positive change for our country, those who are in tune with what the President are trying to achieve. However, there are just some cases that the entrusted people of the President should take into consideration. Considering that the President have lots of critics, especially those from the opposing political lineage, they should be sensitive enough with all their actions because everything they do will affect the President.

With the hot issue right now about federalism, I am neither agree nor disagree with it. I trusted the President of all his wisdom about it. Helping him in promoting the issue is not bad at all as long as it will not defeat his ultimate purpose. However, with what goes viral right now in the social media regarding Mocha Uson's way of promoting federalism wherein his co-blogger, Drew Olivar did a just for fun choreographed dance with a double meaning lyrics of the song that goes along with it, it really stir up varied reactions from the viewers, not to mention the government leaders who found it to be disgusting enough to be published and viewed in the social media. Personally, I don't like it as well. Indeed, it's so disgusting, an unbecoming actions for a government official. Both of them responded to people's reaction claiming that they have done nothing wrong and it is just the people who tried to put malice on the lyrics. Well, they could made all the alibis that they have in mind but they cannot justify what they did because the truth is, people find it offending at all. Who could blame them, after all? They should have considered the consequences of their actions- they should have maintained moral decency especially that they have the social media as their main platform- and the greater population as their critics.
