"Red October"
PERCIVAL B. ALIPIT, Baguio City

This month has been tagged as "Red October" when an alleged plot to destabilize the government involving political opposition, dissident groups, and disgruntled personalities shall be mounted to grab power. It is alarming, but will it happen?

What is agitating is the public discontent that might trigger an upset of the political leadership if the economic woes of people go beyond what they can bear, and it could instigate mass action against inefficacious governance.

If the administration heeds decisively on urgent concerns of Filipinos in soaring of inflation and prices of consumer goods, unemployment and insufficient compensation of workers, and unstable supply of food and rise in poverty incidence, there would be no worry of any destabilization attempt since people become content and will defend the government and support its responsive reforms and prudent initiatives.
