The TRUTH about St Scholastica kids being recruited into “activist” campaigns

Once again, young students of exclusive Catholic school St Scholastica’s College were seen and photographed gathering in a rally seemingly to protest the “dictatorship” of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. It raises again the question of whether or not it is right to be conscripting minors into “activist” campaigns. The particularly important question organisers of these […]

Is it possible for Filipinos to improve the quality of their thinking?

Filipinos really do seem to be missing a chip in their brains. The extent to which they are conditioned to think only what they are told to think is astounding. It is such that when they actually do attempt to challenge authority, they do so from a weak position of argumentation. Indeed, the EDSA “people […]

Filipinos need to kill their cultural demons in order to kill their real enemies

Filipinos need to “unite” to solve their big macro national problems. Yet Filipinos, unfortunately, are a people pulled in different directions. We have Yellowtards versus Dutertards, the masses versus the oligarchs, Christians versus Muslims, and Imperial Manila versus the rest of the country among other battles being waged that are ripping Philippine society apart.

Are UP students suffering from a failure of thinking?

Interesting how just as the government of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is unveiling a massive programme of infrastructure spend of unprecedented proportions, the prevailing online chatter amongst would-be and wannabe “activists” had so far been centred around the proposed honorary degree to be conferred by the University of the Philippines on the president.

Philippine school books are infested with Yellowtard propaganda!

It is often said, and we are often reminded, that children are amongst the most vulnerable members of our society. They look up to their elders and are keen to learn and please — sponges that have many spaces in their minds and psyches to fill. As adults, we are responsible for the shaping of […]

I had an epiphany today. I found out that ROTC (a.k.a. Citizen’s Military Training or CMT or Citizen’s Army Training or CAT) hasn’t been mandatory in Philippine schools since 2001. And so I thought, holy shit, that explains a lot about the quality of Filipino “millennials” today! I realise now that mixed into the cocktail […]

Isang Mensahe Para Kay Mocha Uson, Ang Bagong Myembro Ng MTRCB

Binibining Uson, Congratulations sa iyo, Ms. Uson! Isa ka na ngayong myembro ng MTRCB at mamamahala ng mga palabas dito sa ating bansa. Pag-pasensyahan mo na sana ang pagta-Tagalog ko dahil lumaki ako sa puder ng lolo kong Amerikano kaya hindi talaga ako sanay mag-type sa Tagalog. Bueno, pipilitin kong gawing maiksi at deretso ang […]

Is Taglish the only language Leni Robredo can speak?

Can anyone actually imagine “vice president” Leni Robredo sitting in front of another head of state discussing serious matters of global consequence? It becomes even harder to imagine after watching her speak in yet another one of her pabebe tirades before her adoring minions in the media. Check out this video of her carrying on […]
