|The distinguishing characteristic of the new public administration is its advocacy of social equity. To fight poverty is the modernization of the agricultural sector founded on social equity.
On the basis of social equilibrium, morale is viewed as the happiness and optimism on the part of the people in a society. And to achieve happiness and optimism, human suffering must be reduced, especially those who are products of oppressive administrative arrangements. This is the advocacy of social equity.
In our current Philippine Administration, the modernization of agriculture will create jobs for our fellow people in the countryside. With land to toil, farmers will be given chance to improve their source of living. In such case, the following end-results will be achieved: no more rice shortage, cheaper rates of rice for a bigger number of farmers. There will be lesser squatters in Metro Manila for they will be geared towards rural development. Families who evacuated here in Metro Manila can return to their farms and continue their livelihood in agriculture, since they are not able to find jobs here.
The realization of this advocacy is based on natural justice, a body of rules supplementing the common law. The program will be implemented by the Department of Agriculture, in such case, there is a legal system to monitor the implementation of the short-term goals. Funds will be controlled by the Dept. of Agriculture. Irrigation process and techniques will be applied according to the needs of the program. With the creation of the program is the liberalization of the Filipino workers. This is a concrete illustration of social equity.
