My name is Carlos C Tapang and my objective is to change the intellectual climate in the Philippines. After living out of my country for 30 years, I tried going back in early 2009 with my family. Almost two years later, I had to go back to the U.S. because otherwise I and my family would not have survived with some level of comfort. I am sad to say but I found that my country is still the sick man of Asia.
The only good thing we have going for us is that we are a mature democracy. Our intellectuals have led us astray, as witnessed by the glaring inconsistencies in the 1987 Constitution. My mission is set, and it is to setup a think tank and convince the intellectuals that the road we have been following would lead us to diminishing freedoms and more poverty.
