Screwing the Screwed!

Here is my son’s take on what to do with our country’s situation.

While studying for history, I am growing more and more to the inclination of the acceptance that this country has been fucked up for such a long time now. It appears in my readings that the country progresses indefinitely.

Why? Well because sometimes it doesn’t. In fact, it appears that the only progress the country had for the longest time was Erap, which actually and really says more about the nation’s social divide, process of thinking, and star preference rather than its growth as a nation-state. What amuses me though is that the basic premise of all these screw up-ness (corruption, etc.) has been long in existence and yet, no change is happening.

Are we that stupid?

But let’s not be all too pessimistic. Maybe there is change happening, some sort of Machiavellian turn on the current system somewhere out there; something the tax was rightfully spent on as opposed to the new status quo of self-serving governance. After all, we managed to screw up this country thus far, maybe we can screw up on screwing this country too. Change has to come from somewhere, and by the looks of it screwing the screwed should not be passed up.

If the country does manage to do that, then let’s “problematize” the obvious moral degradation it will need and cause. But with the way things are, how much moral really is there? But that’s for a different day.

For now, I dare say, let’s focus on screwing up the screwed way of things. Act right. I should probably start with stopping my procrastination right now.

    There seems to be truth to the saying that you can really screw the country and make yourself rich by making the people poor and dumb so they can’t have power to get back at you 😦

    Politicans encourage the overpopulation of the poor and under-educated so they can be easier to manipulate. A starving population is easy to coerce, a healthy and prosperous population is much tougher to convince 😦

    For a young man, your son thinks like … err… more maturedly than the dad? hehehe. Peace!

    Seriously, I’m re-reading Machiavelli again. I don’t know why, but that is my favorite book and I love reading it over and over.

    I like the coined word ‘problematize”.

    I’m sure you and your family are doing fine, Rolly. I’m back to blogging mode.. for good. 🙂

    It’s sad the way things are shaping up in the Philippines. Parang things are becoming worse, I heard.

    Hey, it seems that somebody has influenced your son’s way of thinking ha…sino kaya? 🙂

    hay, naku, there had been a lot of attempts to screw the screwed and not understanding what really is happening in this country, all attempts seem to fail. maybe a greater portion of the populace is not stupid but is becoming apathetic and hopeless at the same time.

    i like the way he thinks. just like his father. 🙂
