  • sarda on Why Revolt Won’t Work in Today’s PhilippinesPeople in France are in revolt because they are against and being threatened to live a life of "austerity" because many of them are used to the life of "luxury" and these people are ones who are up in arms, but there are ordinary people who are already adapted to life of "austerity" and are just fine with the lifestyle they chose, since the revolt is not to adopt "austerity", it means, the leaders of this revolt wants to continue the life of living in "luxury" and if they win, the lifestyle of "luxury" continues, history repeat itself. Same condition...
  • mrericx on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?Dear Time Magazine, Rappler, Maria Ressa & other journalists & giant corporate media out there. If you think that the journalism is now on a threat & you're fighting for the "War on Truth" but in the end, you still stinks & your stories are full of garbage, i.e. nothing but full of lies, deception & Fake News and most of the people outside the media world have little or no trusts in you unlike before. Well, I'll give you a "true story" of a veteran journalist who'd made his mistakes before while doing his job as a journalist &...
  • marius on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?Sorry, typo. That's 340,000, not 140,000. Doesn't really alter the basic argument.
  • marius on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?@Darwil: it's called "hyperbole". It's shorthand for "a very big number" and "a very small number", respectively. >> The advent of the internet, powerful computers and search engines has rendered your advocacy on scientific method (17th century) outdated. Rubbish. It's precisely because people think big data is a substitute for thinking and logic that we're in this mess. The philosophical underpinnings of the scientific method are still sound, and the article doesn't actually suggest otherwise (it's just a clickbait title). In fact the author confuses the concept of a scientific body of knowledge (stuff we learned, or think we learned,...
  • ricelander on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?Did Inquirer gain credibility--- or did it invite shame--- when it named Jover Laurio 2017 Filipino of the Year? Same with TIME.
  • ricelander on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?TIME, like all in print media, is on financial downturn. It needs funds. It so happens that the editor-in-chief is a friend of the multi-billionaire Loida Nicolas-Lewis.
  • marius on Breadloser Mentality remains the Undoing of Filipino Society>> But if the oligarchy wants the people to become dependent on them then why don’t we just let them carry this burden of dependency? Not really sure what you mean. From their point of view, the dependency of the masses is not a burden. Or at least not much of one. It's a trade-off. Here's the burden side: to get elected, the mayor promises that he's going to do this and that project, support the poor, blah blah blah. It's all just empty promises, but "the poor", who are stupid and don't understand how anything works, believe every word....
  • sarda on Breadloser Mentality remains the Undoing of Filipino SocietyBut if the oligarchy wants the people to become dependent on them then why don't we just let them carry this burden of dependency? People would only be dependent on you if he/she knows that you have something like wealth that they can depend upon. If they don't see this image of wealth in you, they will assume that you are just one of them and will just look for another to depend upon. I guess, simpleness and being ordinary is the solution I am suggesting but I think the very big problem is how hard it is to be...
  • marius on Can Filipinos build their own rockets?If anyone is interested, there's an interview with the head honcho here: https://www.asianscientist.com/2017/05/features/asias-scientific-trailblazers-rogel-mari-sese/ He seems like a smart guy, but he has no sensible answer to the question "why is Space research useful?". It might be useful to developed countries, but it's of no use whatsoever to the Philippines - not least because all the services he mentions can be easily purchased on the open market for reasonable sums of money. Suggesting it's important for growing rice is just stupid. He would have been better off telling the truth: it's no use at all, but it's important for Pinoy Pride....
  • marius on Can Filipinos build their own rockets?>> You don’t start building a car until you at least understand how a bicycle works. Exactly. But Filipinos are always looking for short-cuts and "it just might work" payoffs. They hate doing things the hard way.
  • marius on Can Filipinos build their own rockets?Ah yes. The Filipino definition of success: at least we didn't lose all our money. Also worth pointing out that Musk used his OWN money to build rockets. It's easy to spend other people's money on your half-assed ideas, especially if you know nobody's ever going to hold you accountable for the nice house and new BMW you've mysteriously acquired. Here's the thing, zaxx: The Americans built rockets because they could afford it. The Russians built rockets knowing that they couldn't. History offers some sobering lessons there. If Dr. Rogel Mari Sese is so damn clever, he should focus on...
  • ORATIO IMPERATA on Can Filipinos build their own rockets?IF TAUNTING WORKED ... Filipinos would have changed BUT THEY DO NOT ... To prove the taunter wrong Filipinos do not change Because if Filipinos change it means the taunter is right. SO DO NOT TAUNT. DO NOT EVEN ENCOURAGE. IT IS BOUND TO FAIL. INSTEAD ENJOY THEIR FAILURES.
  • ORATIO IMPERATA on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?NO! RESSA ONLY FOCUSES ON POLITICS. Because Politics is where the Filipinos are addicted to! Thank Goodness only OLD BROWN FILIPINOS indulge in Politics. Post-Partum, Pre-Teens, Teens, and, 30ish DO NOT CARE ABOUT POLITICS. They care about their FACEBOOK likes !!! Because these cliques know they cannot change the Philippines. They can change their Facebook profiles and pictures BUT NOT THE GENETICS THAT RUNS THE ENGINE OF THEIR DESIRE FOR SELF-DESTRUCTION.
  • zaxx on Can Filipinos build their own rockets?1 peso in, 1 peso out - at least that's not a net loss. Well, taunting a determined Filipino astrophysicist to the point of success just might actually work. Even Elon Musk had his crowd of naysayers back then. So keep up the great work guys.
  • zaxx on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?Coincidentally, I am now holding a genuine copy of that Time magazine issue with Zuck's green-eyed face on the cover. Someone must have bought it back then hoping some of his "magic" rubs off to the reader (hoho - pasko na naman!). Here's a piece of the main article that may be of value to Pinoys... "One of the interests Zuckerberg lists on his Facebook page is "Eliminating Desire"... "To me ... it would be very easy to get distracted and get caught up in short-term things or material things that don't matter. The phrase is actually 'Eliminating desire for...

  • ORATIO IMPERATA on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?CATRIONA GRAY WHO? She's an import from Australia to represent Ugly-Duckling Brown Filipinos ... HAR! HAR! HAR! Why do they import beauties from abroad to represent ugly Filipinos in Miss Universe? Because the other German import had already been crowned Miss Universe sometime ago. So, they have to go abroad .... looking for beautiful ... because they cannot find any in the Philippines !!!! BUT, I DO FIND MY DARLING PINAY GF BEAUTIFUL THAN WURTZBACH AND CATRIONA .....

  • ORATIO IMPERATA on Media industry congratulating itself as @TIME “persons of the year” choices proveHAR! HAR! HAR! That is extremely funny. Ressa will sue. Because Filipinos take their looks seriously. Filipinos spend half of their month's salary just to look white and un-Filipino because being Filipino is just ugly enough !!! HAR! HAR! HAR!
  • Klara on Filipinos should seize the opportunity to define themselves on their own terms NOW@unonw: Knowing ourselves is something fundamental to how we function in relation to everything else, and the basis for accurate judgment and action. We are evidently inclined to find meaning and sense, and we need to improve as we go along— so we can go further. Even as we get overwhelmed by cues that systematically ruin and muddle that process, we can actually choose the better influence.
  • Gogs on Filipinos should seize the opportunity to define themselves on their own terms NOWI really find it strange somebody who comes out of nowhere from the word go wants to put the shackles on me. Defines my contribution and wants to redefine my parameters. Who else have you done your consulting gig for? I should be kissing your feet since so far you have not sent me a bill.
  • Pinoy Citizen on Breadloser Mentality remains the Undoing of Filipino SocietyAnother thing, just look at for example the degeneration of the manila bay and the pasig river. Before they were all clean and good looking but now you know already what happened. Of course, you can blame the people living there who caused the garbage piling up at the river and in the mainstream tributaries and the "comeback" of trash at the shore of manila bay every aftermath of a typhoon, but the thing is, these people did not stop these habits of throwing garbage there for many years already because they have found their place already there and they...
  • mrericx on Media industry congratulating itself as @TIME “persons of the year” choices proveHad anyone visited this humor website called The Adobo Chronicles? They made this "fake news" story where the Rappler founder, Maria Ressa will file a lawsuit against Time Magazine because she'd mock her as a devil. 😈 https://adobochronicles.com/2018/12/12/maria-ressa-sues-time-magazine-for-person-of-the-year-cover-photo/
  • Kulas on Filipinos should seize the opportunity to define themselves on their own terms NOWAnd what do we get with such a reply? Gogs arrogance delivered NOTHING! The only message I'm getting from someone whose record of ZERO societal contribution is clearly nothing more than just an egocentric self-congratulations and nothing more! Gogs is GRP's version of Anastacio aka Nasty personified, "the classic “crow perched on a carabao", thinking and acting nauseatingly superior" just because, in this case, he happens to write for GRP, "inequitably comparing everything here to how they are in the first world." Gogs' objective is questionable, his end game is FANDOM! I also speak the truth! "Filipinos should seize the...
  • marius on Breadloser Mentality remains the Undoing of Filipino Society>> Leaders and their constituents at the smallest level, say clans and barangays, are the ones that need work. I wrote pretty much the same thing before realising you'd posted this. The tragedy is that it COULD be done, as I just described. It could be done quite independently of the government in Manila. But the fact is, the average Filipino doesn't want it. I've had this discussion with a few of the layabouts in the flyblown village where I live. They'd LIKE to have things like garbage collection services, but they don't want to lift a finger to make...
