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.

His being the son of Filipino “martyrs” Ninoy Aquino and Cory Aquino was his only pitch to Filipino […]

Will President Noynoy Aquino go down in history as a good president?
