Duterte has won Filipinos so much respect that the Yellows can no longer hope for reelection

The recent media attention on the APEC and ASEAN summits has been a welcome reprieve from all the relentless energy- and time-wasting Senate investigations and hearings that front-page-hungry grandstanding lawmakers and politicians have been battering us with all year round. At least we get a break to see our president with the biggest who’s who […]

The Fastest Way to Change the Anti-People Yellowtard Constitution is through a Revolutionary Government

The 1987 Yellowtard Constitution needs tweaking. No, it needs a major overhaul. Wrong again – it needs a total and complete replacement. So what’s wrong with the Yellowtard Constitution? Let’s just take this provision for example: ARTICLE VII (Executive Department) SECTION 2. No person may be elected President unless he is a natural-born citizen of […]

Freedom from Democracy: Is it Time for Duterte to Abolish Congress?

Democracy stands for freedom. So essentially, “freedom from democracy” entails liberation from the clutches of freedom. Now why has freedom become fetters that keep the Philippines a struggling third-rate dirt-poor country amidst economic tigers in the region? Well democracy is actually a double-edged sword. While it gives us the benefit of that cool ecstatic feeling […]

The Mess the 1960s Created

The 1960s was a fascinating decade. It’s where all the most lasting modern fixtures in both popular and underground culture were set.

Many of us people born without the looks are being made to cheer for people who were lucky to be born with good looks, similar to how the peasants and peons […]

The Failure of Humanism

This is quite the controversial statement, but it needs to be said again: humanism had failed to save the world. Humanism-embracing people will bawl and rant against it, but it is what many have noticed. Humanism that is based on exalting humans as the highest of things and is often used in angry rants against […]

Do “BoBo Activists” know how to Care for the World?

Once again, “activists” who esteemed webmaster Benign0 calls “hipsters” rode another outrage fad. This was the recent report of entertainment company Nickelodeon opening a water-themed park in Coron. Benign0 rightly said that the protest was ill-framed. Not to mention protesters got something wrong – Nickelodeon said the theme park was to be made on land […]

The Real Reason for Pinoy “Inferiority Complex”

The topic of the Filipino “inferiority complex” has been mentioned by many as a core cause of Philippine society’s backwardness. Many writing about it would call it a legacy of the colonizers, who supposedly implanted this belief in us to make sure we don’t advance as a society. I have a different idea. My mom […]
