A Chronicle of the Da Pinoys and Da Coconut Repablik of Da Pilipins
Folks, several of you had already predicted the results of the election but do you feel somewhat pissed? (I wish BAYAW was a real partylist, I will vote for them but back to the topic) I am fucking pissed off by this bullshit. I know that Noynoy and his cohorts will have the majority of the seats but I am not expecting a 9-3 majority, I am expecting a 7-5 results in this election. I think that the Internet Revolution of 2012 was not enough to turn the tables against those incompetent bastards.
During that time, some politicians and showbiz artists who are a bunch of morons are pushing for the Cybercrime Law but fortunately it was suspended indefinitely. But it was too late for the some people to make a difference. Television is still the dominant source of communications and the media especially those who have links to large political families are endorsing candidates based on popularity rather than competence to govern.
Months before the election also, we are constantly pissed about the “Catholic Vote”. Voting based on conscience and faith are no different from people who are voting a candidate based on popularity. Our elections are reminding me of American Idol. Is this the basis of the Filipinos for a good leader? The people have elected Grace Poe because of FPJ even though I doubt her credentials, Nancy Binay even though she refused to attend political debates, Bam Aquino because every person that has an Aquino surname is not corrupt and so on.
What the fuck is this? This is just insane. This is madness. All of us know why the people elected these mindless dumbfucks into the Senate. We can list some of their stupid excuses:
1. Because the candidate gives money to the poor
2. Because he/she is an Aquino
3. Because he/she is popular
4. Because he/ she eats with her fingers
5. Because he/she brings the favourite artists of the masses
6. Because he/she promises free food, free toilet paper and a grand prize to win a tablet computer
7. Because he/she is religious
My friend Darion hits the spot right here with his status:
“Democracy is bullshit if the majority of the people are idiots and imbeciles who are easily manipulated. But then again,the Philippines is not a democratic country but a monarchy with several families in power.”
We are indeed a monarchy, but a worst form of monarchy. It is a mix of feudalism and absolutism. It is tyranny under the consent of the popular will. Why are those people keep complaining about corruption, red tape, lack of progress and development while they are the ones who elected these tyrants in the first place? we have elected a parasitic aristocracy that rules as an oligarchy to protect their own interests by blocking new concepts and ideas to improve our standard of living and our development.
We live in a combination of the Medieval and Industrial Ages. No do not blame the U.S or other world powers here, it is us who have the problem. Countless political debates, tireless arguments in intellectual circles, tireless announcements by netizens to vote for the right people had all went to waste. It was not heeded by the majority, rather they are easily tempted by money for their own basic survival.
Is this the future that Rizal and Bonifacio wanted, is this the future that the Ilustrados and the people who lead the secession of the Philippines from Spain predicted? No they all thought that we will become an influential country in the international community because of the obvious factors that I had mentioned in my previous articles. This not democracy, it is DEMOCRAZY.
I cannot blame people who are losing hope for the future because the people are not even concerned with the next generations who will experience these kinds of failures, contradictions and apparent idiocy of the Filipino society. This is an another thing that the foreign news organisations will mock on us. As predicted, we will cry racism and demand a public apology.
Our elections are always a history in the making. Massive vote buying, rigging, fiestas, dances and all kinds of things that you will find in parties. We can clearly see that elections are a proof if the people are indeed serious in handing down the responsibility of governance to their representatives. These elected politicians will represent our country in the international scene.
You have a right to choose your candidate, but options are limited to nothing but morons, buffoons and some competent politicians who cannot win because they are not popular. Elections are a time if we are indeed living in a sustainable republic. Unfortunately, most power rests in a few political clans who are protective of their large businesses. Indeed, politics is almost nothing but a business here just like the Roman Catholic Church. Both of them are pathetic and outdated in their ideas.
George Carlin said “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups”. Well his quote applies well to our current situation. This country is already dragging down to the pit of mud every elections. Do we need to limit the suffrage? Do we need to replace our current form of government? The former is quite impossible but the latter is feasible. I still doubt if Constitutional Reform will be approved by the President and the majority of the citizens because of this event.
Now tell me: Are you Proud To Be Pinoy? Nationalism is a pathetic excuse. The country has a cancer that most people will not dare to cure it and prevent it from spreading again. The cancer has its roots in the past and it continues to spread in every corner of our society? I cannot tolerate this bullshit already. It is the time for the remaining thinking Filipinos to unite in a single voice of reform. We need the medicines so badly to cure the cancer or else we will continue to rot.
“So on all sides there are groans, gnawing of lips, clenching of fists, many hollow words, great ignorance, a deal of talk, a lot of fear. The patient is near his finish!”
-Jose Rizal, La Solidaridad
Another final quote from Rizal. Those who defended the elections are criticising us for not being positive and being a traitor to our country. Here is the quote:
“Does your Excellency know the spirit of (my) country? If you did, you would not say that I am “a spirit twisted by a German education,” for the spirit that animates me I already had since childhood, before I learned a word of German. My spirit is “twisted” because I have been reared among injustices and abuses which I saw everywhere, because since a child I have seen many suffer stupidly and because I also have suffered.
My “twisted spirit” is the product of that constant vision of the moral ideal that succumbs before the powerful reality of abuses, arbitrariness, hypocrisies, farces, violence, perfidies and other base passions. And “twisted” like my spirit is that of hundreds of thousands of Filipinos who have not yet left their miserable homes, who speak no other language except their own, and who, if they could write or express their thoughts, would make my Noli me tangere very tiny indeed, and with their volumes there would be enough to build pyramids for the corpses of all the tyrants…”
Open letter to Barrantes on the Noli, published in La Solidaridad (15 February 1890)
Mark my words. One day this country will see his light again. One day we shall rise from the ashes but the question is how long will we wait for that day? Everything has its end, and one day tyranny and idiocy in this country shall fall like a house of cards! People, I also recommend you to read this article. There are still many crybabies in this country.
Thank you for reading and I shall post a great song for everyone by Daft Punk. I shall see you guys on my next article. You know what play video games to temporarily erase your anger. Adios!
