  • ChinoF on Why Revolt Won’t Work in Today’s PhilippinesThat'll work perhaps if China was really interested in taking over the Philippines at all. You do know I'm a skeptic of that, since it presents no real advantage to them. But in case they do want it, probably most Filipinos won't mind. Especially if Chinese come in bearing gifts, like dole-outs. If you say, beware Chinese bearing gifts, the Filipinos will say, but I love gifts! I wish everything was a gift so I don't need to work!
  • marius on Why Revolt Won’t Work in Today’s PhilippinesI wonder if China may attempt to provoke a revolt. It probably won't work because Filipinos are so passive, but a chaotic revolution would give China the excuse it needs to step in with a "peacekeeping" force. That technique worked so well for the CIA they used it about half-a-dozen times during the 20th century.

  • 676Hyden007Toro99999.777 on Why Revolt Won’t Work in Today’s PhilippinesThere are many reasons why Filipinos immigrate to the U.S or become OFW slaves in other countries. Most of us OFWs are economic refugees. Some like , former COMELEC CHIEF, Andres Bautista, are wanted for crime, like thievery. Bautista, cannot enjoy what he had stolen in his own country. Others will be there , looking for a way to steal what he had stolen. I bet, if the Philippines are neighbors with the U.S., like Mexico. We would be there climbing the border fence, like the , Hondurans and Guatemalans. I would had climbed also !

Celebration of June 12 Independence Day in the US when the real Independence Day was July 4th !!! NOT JUNE 12 !!!

  • Robert Haighton on Why Revolt Won’t Work in Today’s PhilippinesThe protesters just go back to work and still get their salary/wage. So what are you talking about? There is still certainty and stability.

  • ORATIO IMPERATA on Why Revolt Won’t Work in Today’s PhilippinesEDSA "REVOLUTION" WAS A FAKE REVOLUTION. It was not even coup d'tat. IT WAS A SQUABBLE BETWEEN TWO CORRUPT GROUP OF PEOPLE and the Filipinos were just spectators. HOW CAN THAT BE A REVOLUTION !!!! I AM MAD AT YOU HAYDEN FOR MAKING IT A REVOLUTION. *chuckle* *chuckle*

  • 656Hyden007Toro8888.999 on Why Revolt Won’t Work in Today’s PhilippinesThe 1986 "Philippine Revolution" (coup d'etat). did nor work. We became as poor as we can be; our leaders became as corrupt as they can be; and the Aquinos became as narcissistic, as they can be... The mainstream media became the propaganda machine of the Aquinos, to promote their heroism and sainthood. The COMELEC Hocus Pcos and Smart Switik, elected our leaders, like Pnoy Aquino, Lugaw Robredo, Porky Drilon, etc... Former COMELEC Chief Andres Bautista, facilitated these election cheatings; and became a multi billionaire with multiple bank accounts. This crook is now a refugee in the U.S., enjoying his loots....
  • Klara on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?It's probably more a war against lies, or a war for truth... since channels have now been opened in terms of information flow—which makes sorting out information supposedly easier. What's key in this is people's ability to handle the technological situation.
  • marius on Is there REALLY a “War on Truth” as @TIME Magazine asserts?@Darwil: you don't HAVE a case to rest. I gave you some hard numbers and you offered no response.
  • 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....
