Social Media is the Voice of the Youth
Bongbong Marcos: The Youth Must be a Part of the Political System
Bongbong Marcos recognizes the voice of the youth through social media. They are not very active as voting registrants because they have lost their trust in the electoral system. The Comelec must do something to bring the election integrity back. Young registrants must also vote to retain the balance in the country’s democracy regardless of the fraudulent activities. Silence cannot solve anything. It’s the participation of the majority that can drive cheaters away.
The Hope of the Future
Just like what the late Dr. Jose Rizal has said: the youth is the hope of the future. However, nowadays, it’s only on social media that they are vocal. This is because their voices are heard there instantly. Unlike in politics. Therefore, it is necessary for them to join political exercises by hearing them out using the present communications technology, said Bongbong Marcos.
Embracing the Technology Age
The youth can solve the existing problems of the nation. First, listening to them is crucial. They are the ones who know the digital solutions. The major problems also involve them like childhood pregnancy and many more. Therefore, the Philippines cannot see the brightness of the future without their participation. To empower the youth must be a priority. They are not the outcast but the lead influencer. Guidance is necessary by modern leaders. Politicians who value the importance of digital and global powers. So, let’s campaign for a clean election next.
