Hero Worship Is Still Exploited for Duping Filipinos

Hero Worship remains so strong in Filipino society. Likely because, as I explained before, Filipinos see heroes as what they really want to be: lords and masters over others. Some others just want validation, and instead of trying to benefit others, they try to attack others and paint them as evil, such what Jover Laurio […]

Is 13th Month Pay Symbolic of Filipino Wastefulness?

We Filipinos take for granted the 13th month pay. We probably would go on a witch hunt if we found our company does not give it (let me note that 13th month pay is separate from Christmas bonuses). This pay scheme was mandated by a law introduced by Ferdinand Marcos in 1965, and it continues […]

Anti-Governmentism is a Dumb Fad

I’ve observed that nearly every country in the world has people who hate their government. Whether US, China, Japan, Russia, or even Israel, there sure are critics. Of course, hating on governments has been around since government has been around. But anti-governmentism has become bloated into one of today’s pretentious fads. Right now we have […]

How the SJW Way becomes Extortion

Let’s discuss one basic reason why Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) are hated. Let’s say an SJW wants some poor people to receive aid. Problem is, they don’t have money of their own… or don’t want to give it. They don’t want to do a collection drive or set up their own foundation either. They’ll look […]

The CBCP’s Seeking Influence Over the State Isn’t Good

One wonders what the CBCP is up to when they say, well… interesting things that seemingly indicate a desire to keep people poor and deprived. For example, remember when a bishop said poverty is not a problem? Some priests even go as far as to say illegal drug use shouldn’t be seen as wrong! Perhaps […]

Wrong Filipino Attitudes about Work

It’s easy to observe that some Filipinos don’t like work. Gogs wrote about why Filipinos don’t value work. Filipinos are afraid of failure before success and just want to become famous without any effort. But aside from that, I see a few other things about Filipino views toward work that may affect how they make […]

Being a Pot-Tard won’t Save the Philippines

It seems a lot of pot-tards were stirred up by fellow blogger Ilda’s article about Cecilia Lero and Rappler’s seeming promotion of illegal drugs. The pot-tards came in with all these arguments about pot benefits, studies of this and that, how other countries treat it, and more. All of which miss the point; pot is […]

The Problem with “Awa” or Sympathy for Drug Users

This woman’s picture made the rounds with her rather questionable message, “I’am a drug user, will you kill me? #break the stigma.” Let me guess what she means: illegal drug use is should not be seen as a bad thing, and that it is being used as an excuse or false reason to kill someone. […]
