Political blocs allied under the ‘Yellow’ flag are the reason the Philippines is unstable

Filipinos are being pulled in different directions nowadays as various political blocs battle one another for dominance in a landscape characterised by turmoil and unrest. Looking just a short time back, the mid-2000s was the same. It was also a time of frequent street rallies and accusations of “human rights violations” among others being thrown […]

Filipinos, get 100% behind your Army and prepare to CRUSH the terrorist New People’s Army!

Now that the Philippine government will be in an “all-out” war against the New People’s Army (NPA), the terrorist arm of the Communist Party of the Philippines, it is worth exploring some lessones learnt from the recent war that liberated Marawi City from similar terrorist elements.

A response to the question “What have you done for the country?”

“What have you done for the country?” That was the last question a former friend and colleague asked me before he blocked me on social networking site Facebook.

I was actually planning to write this article at some other time. In all honesty, I think many of you have had enough of the Mamasapano Massacre and everything it entails already. Indeed, I’m kinda sick of it myself. I ask, why can’t we just let their families grieve quietly now? Why can’t we give […]

So What Exactly Are Pinoys Proud Of?

After writing my previous article about Pinoy gamers, I have to ask the question what does “Pinoy Pride” even amount to? What exactly are we proud of? And even if there are, is that pride actually ours? Indeed, Fallen Angel in one of her older articles explains why she isn’t proud of being a Filipino […]

Filipinos’ misguided sense of patriotism is tearing the nation apart

The disqualification cases against Senator Grace Poe’s candidacy for the Presidency in the upcoming election due to her questionable citizenship status has caused quite a stir in Philippine society. It has divided the sentiments of the Filipino people. While she has many supporters, there are people who call her a traitor supposedly because she abandoned […]
