I’m not gonna mince words anymore. It’s time for me to be brutally frank. The immaturity of Filipinos as it is is probably one of the biggest factors that keep it in the dark about what’s really going on in the world around us. Remember my article about the immaturity of Filipinos? Well, I think now we’re seeing the outcome of what all our lollygagging as a people has done. As we continue to bicker among ourselves on who to blame about what, events on a global scale unwind, affecting other events which affect other events. The dominoes of international proceedings are in motion but, sadly, countless Pinoys are either unaware of their progress or simply don’t want to care.
Look ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for me to be brutally frank. Despite the call for prayers and positive thinking, the future does not look well for the Filipino people. Indeed, while the media tries to cover up the many incidents that are taking place both within and without the country, there are still so many Pinoys who stick to knowing everything about Kris Aquino’s sex life or where Daniel Padilla’s next movie will be. Again, as I’ve said perhaps for the thousandth time, distractions are okay as long as we remember their central nature: distractions. Things that are not necessary for our survival and progress should take a backseat to what does. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Please allow to be elaborate on the stupidity of the common Pinoy:
The Approval Of The BBL
Okay, it stands to reason that one of our biggest concerns is the passing of the BBL. Why? Because its approval will mean that territories in Mindanao will be declared independent and given over to terrorist organizations like the MILF. Should this ever be signed by Congress, no one can ever intercede in what happens in those territories as even the United Nations will be forced to accept whatever terms are put forth to them by the MILF which are the territories’ de facto leaders. Genocide on non-Muslims communities as well as Muslims that disagree with the agendas of the MILF will likely take place as they have in many African and Middle-Eastern states and no one can do anything about it as they will have been granted free rein.
Well, yes, the BBL or its spirit means well. A decentralization of power may indeed be beneficial to the Filipino people. Unfortunately doing so at gunpoint and under the the threat of terrorist attack is not a “negotiation” but essentially a “surrender”.
However, all things considered, it will probably be approved. Using simple distractions such as the threat of an earthquake (which can be adequately prepared for through proper planning), the president’s dating habits with a beauty queen (which is totally irrelevant in the grand scheme of things and doesn’t make him any less a loser) and Pacquiao’s defeat and the possibility of a rematch, they’ll probably run the thing right under our noses. Remember my articles about Pacquiao and how so many people reacted negatively? Well, lemme remind you that Pacquiao is just one of many congressmen who openly support BBL. With so many of his fans supporting him like he’s the next Jesus, will it be any surprise that Mindanao will soon be ruled by Islamic tyrants.
The Chinese Invasion
Let’s face it, the Chinese are planning an invasion. For all their hatred against the atrocities of Imperial Japan against them during WWII, here they are doing the exact same thing as the Axis Powers of that age. Seizing territories and bullying surrounding countries with military power? Where have I heard that before? Does that ring a bell to any of you?
Oh well, maybe I am too old. Anyway, when you look back in history, Nazi Germany treated its surrounding states with the same contempt as China. They seized territories and what not, claiming that they belonged to the German people to begin with. They maltreated many Eastern European states like Poland and Romania, claiming that Slavs are an inferior race to them.
China, with its establishment of various installations in the South China Sea are doing the exact same thing. These are acts of war, ladies and gentlemen. This is not something we can easily scoff at and sweep under the rug. This is happening right here and now. As we speak, the Chinese Navy is building airfields in their claimed territories which could pave the way for the use of military aircraft. They say that these are for civilian aircraft but with the presence of radar and other defenses as well as their issuance of strong warnings against any approaching aircraft or vessel, can we even really trust them?
The Loss Of Free Speech
Sadly, this too is a growing concern. Yes, there is still freedom of speech in the Philippines but it is all too often the wrong kind. What qualifies for freedom of speech in the Philippines these days is celebrity news, celebrity news and celebrity news. When others clamor for something else or call people out on their hedonistic and naive tastes, they are lambasted immediately by retards and beholden masses who worship their chosen celebrity as an incarnate deity of some kind.
But then, think about the thousands of journalists who have done their best to look into dangerous situations such as corruption in the government or the terrorists down south. Needless to say, we rarely ever hear of them again or their cases being solved.
When President Aquino made mention of Journalists in Belgium and how some of them probably “brought their problems on to themselves”, I can only imagine if this is what the Aquino family thinks of other journalists who don’t agree with them. With the recent death of Mei Magsino as well as the disappearance and death of so many other Filipino journalists in the country, can we ever really trust what the local media is feeding us?
Please people, we need to wake up…
