GetRealPhilippines.com continues its tradition as the ONLY Real Deal in Philippine Media in 2013!

Victim mentalities. It is the dysfunctional mindset underlying the empty rhetoric of “change” that so-called “activists” espouse while consistently failing to grasp the irony in doing so. The currency of this activist rhetoric is “the poor”. The entire activist rhetoric is premised on the notion of “the poor” necessarily being in the losing end of so-called “unholy alliances” between the powers-that-be — the oligarchs, the politicians, the religious officialdom, and Big Corporate.

juan_tamadBut stop and think about what has become an established paradigm amongst the chattering classes for a moment. Then think laterally from that position and behold: The poor also have “unholy alliances” with politicians and religious leaders. That alliance is in plain sight — specially in the Philippines, a country all but shaped by the tyranny of the masses. The Philippines is a “democracy” where the popular sentiment rules; where squatting is rampant, where filthy antiquated public utility vehicles lord over the roads with deadly impunity, and where unqualified and stupid politicians get elected to office. What we see today is the emergent overall outcome of decades of pandering to the whims of the majority “people.”

This is supposedly a nation held hostage by the rich and powerful elite the activists say. But imagine what more, a Philippines changed into the ideal state that the masses and their activists aspire to. It is not difficult to imagine a state built upon the principles favoured by the inherently unskilled, talentless, oppressed, and opporunity-starved majority people that activists objectify in their ideologies. It will be a state where resources are doled out “fairly”, where exceptional people are cut down to size, and where all people are winners.

But there is no such thing as good intentions — only personal interests. The rich want to keep the status quo becuase that is the environment within which they acquired their wealth and power. The poor, supposedly espousing an antithesis to that keep harping about “change”. Yet if you look underneath that rhetoric you will find that they too benefit from the status quo. This is because a state where the poor have political power is necessarily one that is unable to distribute wealth evenly. It is only a state that exercises absolute control where wealth is doled out “fairly” as a matter of policy. In principle, that is.

And that is why theocracies are always so appealing to the poor and ignorant. The Roman Catholic Church, that supposed “champion of the oppressed,” is by far, the single biggest beneficiary of status quos of all time. In every chapter in human history, the Church has stood in the way of change. The most recent exhibition of the consistent anti-change stance of the Catholic Church is in the battle for the implementation of legal population control in the Philippines. Because the most extremist interpretations of Catholic dogma — made fragile by the way it is administered from the top-down — is best propagated in a teeming human cesspool of ignorant believers, the Church has always been against making knowledge accessible and making options available. A perception of lack of choice has always been the glue that bonded people to dogma.

In short, you really can’t win if your goal is to see an ideal happen by design. Nations are shaped from the bottom-up no matter how much we latch on to the notion that leaders matter and that being led by “the best” of them will be our salvation.

The whole idea of a society of winners — a place known above all for its best — leads with surprising speed to a narrow pyramidal social structure. And then to division and widespread passivity. That in turn leads to false populism and mediocrity; to a world obssessed by bread and circuses, Heroes, and the need for leadership.

That’s John Ralston Saul in his book On Equilibrium.

This is me:

Great nations were not built on good intentions. They were built on business sense. Real change in Pinoy society will never be achieved through the “sacrifice” of altruistic “heroes”. True change will be driven by people who find no shame in expecting a buck for their trouble.

We’re the real deal. Happy New Year!

What you wrote here is true. If we want the country to move forward, we must recognize that there is no free lunch.

Every one who contributes to our country’s progress must be paid well. Otherwise, there would be no incentive for the best minds to stay here and help our nation.

How do you propose that happens?

Johnny Saint

It’s not complicated. The idea has been kicking around for over three hundred years. It’s called “Laissez-faire” — “let it be.” Scholars will generally agree that a completely free market has never existed. But it has been historically proven that the easing of restrictions on trade and the deregulation of industry has allowed for unprecedented economic growth and development. And while the economist Adam Smith never used the term in his writings, he describes the benefits of the self-regulating behavior of the marketplace as a result of economic self-organization born out of economic self-interest. In other words — the best… Read more »

Yes. The government should concern itself with protecting the rights of the people to pursue life, liberty and happiness but it seems too many want the government to make them comfortable and don’t really care how it’s done. Note: PURSUE is the keyword.

Johnny Saint
Guest

Now, we all know that isn’t going to happen any time soon. 😉 Any significant change in business regulatory policy will not come from the Aquino government or from any administration cut from the same cloth. Meaningful change will only come from regime change. That means that if we want to create a climate that is conducive for people and their business to thrive, as citizens, we must exercise our legal right to VOTE IN a government that will implement deregulation.

Von
Guest
@T4Man For starters, the government must not put up so many restrictions on anyone who wants to put up a business. Currently, it would take at least 30 days of a Filipino to get his business up and running (when getting all the required documentations and permits). Time which can be used in selling his products and employing people. In other more progressive countries, one can set up a legitimate business in one to seven days. Why can’t we do the same thing here? Secondly, if the business is a start-up give incentives. Even before a business starts operating, the… Read more »

Von: Well that is good to hear. For a moment when you said, “Every one who contributes to our country’s progress must be paid well” I thought you may be proposing guaranteed wages or some such nonsense. Sadly, not only Filipinos, but people around the world think that government is always the solution when most of the time it interferes with the people helping themselves which is the real solution.

“Over-regulation” is definitely a burden on entrepreneurs in the Philippines. But even in industrialized nations — such as the United States — the state has expanded its regulatory oversight from year to year. For 2011 alone, the US federal government added some 33,000 pages of legislation to the existing list of regulations. And these run a wide range of topics — from permits to health care to environmental impact and safety. A lot of it happens to be redundant, unnecessary or just plain silly. In the Philippines we should also look at how the state implements the rules and regulations… Read more »

Ahh, that intellectual commentary was relaxing, unlike the trolling here done by the Yellow snow eaters. 😀

Uhh, I have a question, could regulation be something common in a welfare state and non-regulation (or little) be common in a free market state? Enlighten me.

Johnny Saint
Guest
Okay. 😉 The truth is a free market economy WILL have some form of regulation. But first off, you have to define what “welfare state” means. It isn’t exactly an entity that you readily point out. Rather, it is a description of the policies, the institutions, the implementing infrastructure and the all around “attitude” of the people within the system. The Encyclopedia Britannica defines the welfare state as a “concept of government in which the state plays a key role in the protection and promotion of the economic and social well-being of its citizens. It is based on the principles… Read more »

some professionals eschew the pursuit of riches and instead give back by training others, or bein mentors. some volunteers go to the hinterlands to educate and train. surely these people are useful too in improving our country. just as useful as those motivated by cash.

to author: would grp be a better blog if it were motivated by the buck or by a genuine desire to effect change?

MidwayHaven
Guest

Motivation by cash is as useful as volunteerism because BOTH bring genuine change, and GRP does very well to herald change in both fields.

Altruism does not work in a society where change is outright REFUSED by its recipeients.

So now, sendonggirl, the question goes back to you: do you work better if you get motivated by cash, or are your implications of criticism against this blog better with genuine altruism?

well im just clarifying because the claim is we are better served if we are all motivated by the money instead of “making a difference”. but the blog sounds as if it IS trying to make a difference. it sounds like it cares hehehe. which is it man?

Good point on the poor and “unholy alliances”. It seems everyone is trying to get on the bandwagon. As soon as people in a “democracy” figure out that they can vote money for themselves there seems to be no end and that applies to rich and poor alike.

I don’t argue about religion. What you believe is your own business. The Roman Catholic Church should be reminded of what Jesus stated about the separation of the Church and State: ” Render unto Caesar, things that are of Caesar’s. And unto your God , things that are of your God”. This is hard to decide for Church leaders. The Roman Catholic Church participated in the support of Jewish Holocaust in Nazi Germany. So, it’s very hard to decide, if you can see the thin Red line of separation. Nothing will change in our country. Until, we all change…

GRP is a blog about politics in the Philippines,AGREED. There are no independent media covering politics in the country and that is just the nature of the beast,OR the beauty of it? I do not see anything positive ever written in GRP about the Aquino administration. Surely it has done something right? For example,while most of the people in the country wanted that crook, that screwed the workers at PAL for a big pay-day, ousted from the SC. But GRP was actually defending the creep.

I haven’t been on GRP very long but the theme that gets emphasized over and over to me is that the majority needs to wake up and GET REAL. Watching the Corona impeachment trial on TV was a revelation to me about how incompetent the majority of senators are. THIS is what I believe GRP was complaining about. Juris-prudence was not at the forefront of that trial by a long shot. At best it was a tele-drama and at worst (and in reality) a huge embarrassment to the Filipino people.

I just want to point out that even though AQUINO has signed some lucrative deals with foreign investment companies that are bringing jobs into the country, it’s still not good or maybe you’re lying because he still closes doors to foreign investors in favor of LOCAL CRONIES.

Pfft yeah right foreign investments when in fact a lot of foreign investors are going away from this country not only because of the useless taxes and expensive costs like electricity and water ( and these are very espensive in whole Asia FYI) but also the up to 40% ownership rule for foreign investors making business here. Which is why they wanna focus more of their business on tax haven, not too much ownership restriction countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand and even china. You’re listening too much BS media.

Indeed, domo, di mo masisisi kung bakit nagsisialisan ang mga investors mula dito.

I wanna raise a question: now that RH is in effect, and assuming that PNoy approved it just so that he could lure investors into this country, are they still going to continue their investments here with the sin tax reform bill now in act? I don’t think so, though I have no solid facts to show you guys yet, just some rough mental calculations.
