Longest and Most Serious Post - Check Out the Past One fo Something Lighter (Funnier)

So many Pilipino leaders after the ousting of Ferdinand Marcos and everything that he stood for, has tried to harness the popularity and legitimacy of the people's power. Yet they all have failed miserably. This is so since their ideal of revolution is based on their personalities and own sense of ideals, rather than for the sake of the Pilipino people with regards to historical relevance and the human endeavor. But more importantly, they were unwilling to take the role of the chimera or the instigator of such passion. Rather they like to position themselves as the ideal image of the hero or a heroine of the people, yet failing to be the leader that would bring the change that the country needs. since once they have managed to place themselves in power, the people's power once again becomes an alien concept from their lofty heights of ambition and greed. this happens because the Pilipino people fails to realize that the people's power is the power of the masses to change their world and their country, not the wave for political personalities and interests to ride to fulfill their own agendas and personal glories. So the question is why the people's power revolution did after Marcos has been so potent: The reason is that a real change was recognized well before the event, and a change is long over-due. The containment and martial law that Marcos has implemented into the whole country is part of the decolonization program coordinated with the global endeavor to end such tragic legacy. The strategy was to simulate the conquest and colonization that the Pilipino nation has suffered from colonial-Spain, to excise its evils and bleed the poison from the blood-stream of the Pilipino nation, to foster and cultivate the passion and aspirations for freedom and liberation, to simulate the ideal condition of resistance and revolution from such tyranny and experience. Meaning, during the Spanish rule the Pilipino people has no one or nowhere to have their outcry heard. While the response to such sentiment from the Spanish has been swift, cruel, and it did not give the Pilipino people the chance to develop a country from their passion and ideals. The Marcos rule has contained and fostered such passion and ideals, which when the time comes it has bloomed like a beautiful and defiant flower.The people's power comes in many different forms. Our overseas Filipino workers are in fact a form of a people's power. They aspire to change their lot in life as well as their loved ones, so they brave the unknown to bring that change and hope for prosperity. Our young professionals are also in fact a form of a people's power, they are ready to change and advance the Philippine economy with their talent and hard work. The hard work and the sacrifice of the Pilipino workers is also a form of the people's power, they make the Philippine economy function and maintains the sustainability of the country. People’s power does not have to be an event in an instant, often the real people's power is done deliberately over time and in due process. In fact, the people's power revolution after Marcos is still ongoing, since the changes in the world and to the government is yet to be realized. The destructive power of the people’s power against the system and social structure seen after Marcos is not the kind of force that the Philippines needs today. rather the Pilipino people needs to realize the continuing process of change and progress, and the powers of awakening and indignation to promote change and progress is what the Pilipino people should be fostering within themselves. The masses should absorb the system so that they would become the system, taking back the levers of powers from the corrupt politicians and greedy interests. Every single Pilipino should do their part in healing the social structure so that they may develop a nation that they could call their own, not ending up being the servants and commodities of the elitists and foreign interests. Why did Marcos implement the containment program and the martial law (besides from the obvious fact that the Philippines was the last domino that stands against the spread of communism during the Cold War)? Marcos needed to implement the containment program to foster the Pilipino people as a one nation and as a single race. This was so since the Spanish colonial legacy has left the people divided that while a certain privileged group enjoys the wealth and the power of the land, the rest of the masses lived under their shadow of exploitation and tyranny. The containment program has been designed to shift society from such a tragic configuration to something that could foster and heal the nation. The martial law has been the means for the central government to gather all the powers of the land that has been divided to various clans, dynasties, and groups to be centralized to the government. This division has threatened the nation into descending to a civil war, to which Marcos deemed that it is an absolute imperative to prevent. With communist infiltration and the growing discontent amongst the poor under the tyranny of these various entities, these elements had the ideal condition to tear the country apart. The revolution of the poor is an absolute essential for the freedom and liberation of the Pilipino nation, but they need to struggle as a whole nation not as a divided factions and insurgencies. Since for various elitist groups, the will of the masses are seen as their own commodity to exploit the same as the laborer, workers, and servants in their haciendas and industries. meaning they see the will of the masses the same as the labor of their own servants and laborers, and as their servants and laborers such will serves only for the purpose on their behalf and interests. As the strategy unfold during the revolution, the political and social landscape begins to polarize in favor of the masses, while the grip of the elitists and infiltrators begins to unravel. But prior to these events, the instigation of democratic ideals and the aspirations for freedom and liberation has been built to pave the way for the future. to which the presidency of Marcos served as the chimera for the masses to turn against for their ideals and aspirations to reign supreme. since if the masses would do the same to their 'masters' and 'land lords', the reaction of these elitist interest wouldn't be so 'generous'.Today, the problem of the nation is the same problem that Marcos has sought to destroy. The powerful clans, dynasties and groups that held the country hostage and then forced the masses to live under their shadows of corruption, deception, exploitation and tyranny remain in the position of powers. We see them in the form of political personalities gathering up their local populations to tear and destabilize the government to gain more power for their own interests and position. We see them in the form of political interest groups seceding, boycotting and even sabotaging any effort and endeavor of the government to prove to the people that their government serves their interests. These parasites and cancers would never be dislodged unless the whole of the nation realizes the truth and takes it upon ourselves to change the whole country. A people's power is needed to make such change and to take away the levers of powers from these parasites and cancer. Certain groups, insurgents, rebels and radicals remain antagonistic to the Philippine government because they failed to realize the revolution that took place and are still waiting for the bloodshed that marks the fulfillment of their expectations. What they do not realize is that everything has changed, and that their successes are now their victory. A power exists in the land that also holds these hostage takers hostages, left by the Marcos legacy to ensure that these powerful interests are in-check and to prevent the descent of society into the killing fields of war. Sadly it depends on the vigilance of the few and diminishing common citizens that has often been targeted for extermination when detected. They are often left all alone without any backing or protection, vulnerable to be plucked and killed by anyone who detects them.Lately we see Corazon Aquino trying to relive the glories of the people's power that she rode into glories. Yet all of her attempt has faltered and seen as her effort to hijack the original ideals of the people's power to be her own. Erap himself had fallen because of his own indiscretion and his lost of support from the people. What Cory fails to realize is that her role was just a happy coincidence, that the real leader of the people's power had been the sentiment and the outcry of the masses. The Pilipino nation had been led and guided by their own will and moral ideals. The desire of the masses for freedom and to establish a democratic country to cradle them and to call their own has leaded the people's power to break through the system that has oppressed them. Her husband had served as the catalyst to unite the whole country to a single leader, so that when Marcos let go of the powers of the land would fall into the hands of the masses, and not to the lurking wolves in the shadows waiting for their time to tear the country apart. She has brought light and enlightenment to the endeavor, because the aspiration and the hope of the masses have shined through her presidency. Yet she failed to realize that the people's power is the power of the masses and not for politicians to harness, as seen with the actions of her many political friends. Convinced that the freedom and the vibrancy seen today of the masses is her legacy to invoke at will; she has become its obstacle and has mislead its meaning, never realizing that she had brought back the lurking wolves into the corridors of power, with their continuing associations with the elitist and the wealthy and distance from the common Pilipino people. Through her, the lurking wolves in the shadows have gained access to exploit the people's power for their own interests. Though her term has long passed, she remains relentless in trying to impose her influence on the president. Should she be unable to control the president, then she would once again call-in her 'people's power' to compromise the government. Cory seeks to effectively become a power above the presidency in the country, empowered with the belief that the people's power is her own design to exploit.If Marcos would be compared with an American president, it would be Ronald Reagan. Containment works and destabilization never solves anything, which is why I suspect that Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo would hold-on into power until the time comes. She has been placed in her position as ordained by higher powers and by the ideals of a democratic society, and she will serve her role vindicated by history. She is a very capable president, and her administration works for the benefit of the country. She may not have the personality or the charisma that many people would expect from a leader, but she has the ability and the capability to make the tangible change and progress for the economy. Many would erroneously try to track the transitions of powers as black and white. Failing to realize that roles are shifted and switched all the time to achieve equality, balance... and when it is polarized, the unity of the Pilipino people would be realized. The country must realize the catalyst of change presented by recent events has been in the works for the continuing process of the people's power. That rather than trying to bring-down the government, they should recognize that now is their chance to take-over and change the government.

To rid the government of these parasites, cancers, and lurking wolves.

To replace them with the country's best and the brightest.The secessionist tendency of the Pilipino people and the urge to tear apart the system has its colonial roots. But in a modern world, such tendency and urges need to be curved into much more sensible and reasonable due process. They need to learn that they must ascend to become representative of the nation, rather than its detriment without even presenting an alternative or a solution. They must understand that the government is now their own, by the people and for the people. The system of governance that was imposed by colonial Spain has long gone, and the Pilipino people are now and have been for a very long time the master of their own house. The well-being of the nation is also their well-being as its citizen, and if they hope to have any progress for the country, they must realize that as its citizen it is their duty to do so. Not seceding and tearing it apart and waiting for another president to be placed in the hot seat. If the presidents and the politicians of the country are getting away with their corruptions and failure, it is because the Pilipino people don’t know how to be a good citizen. Their negligence of their own government is allowing these wolves to devour their country. President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo would remain in power to curve such destructive tendencies and urges of the masses, while the masses make a stand to curve the greed of corrupt politicians and interests. The presidency and the masses must start learning from each other, and to coordinate more their intentions and endeavors.

I have to warn everyone in the Philippines that the president would leave a huge power vacuum if certain political personalities and interest manages to usurp Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. The consequence would be a huge power vacuum that would take away all the hard work and investment for the nation and within the Pilipino people, a power vacuum that would only be filled-in by the unscrupulous and opportunists that have long been after the greatest power of the land even before the controversy started. The current sentiments of the people are based on the presented argument or accusation. Since the truth is multi-dimensional and no single sentiment could describe its image, what the Pilipino people needs now is for the moral revolution to once and for all expel the darkness that has been overshadowing their world for hundreds of years. A golden age is at hand for the Pilipino nation which they must place it upon themselves to realize and fulfill. The unraveling current events in the Philippines are perhaps one of the most important phase or transformation of the government and the society, to which the Pilipino people could not afford to miss.Beneath these events in the Philippines, the real people's power is subliminally being fulfilled. It is no accident that the Pilipino society has been deliberately unraveled once again, creating this crisis temperature of change.

Behind the political maneuvering that is seen with the events in the Philippines today are interest groups and political personalities who want to invoke the powers of the military and the police for their own design and agendas. But what they have failed to realize is that these institutions has also revolted after Marcos to never again be used by any personality or any form of government that would use them against the Pilipino people. which if these interest groups and political personalities manages to turn the police and the military forces against the government today, they would have also managed to turn these forces against the people governed by that government. The secret is that these events are designed for these anti-Pilipino interest groups to spend the last scrap of their political and social strength, and for the masses to wrestle their destiny and nation from their grip. To once and for all eliminate the threat that they pose to the Pilipino people and their government. The freedom gained by the masses during the people's power has been brought due by the moral revolution of their armed forces. the Pilipino people has gained their freedom and their future when its own armed forces broke free from the shackles of evil and the authority of tyranny, and turned to fight for their cause. when it stopped enforcing and embodying the power and the authority of tyranny that has been the norm for hundreds of years from colonial Spain, the greatest revolution in the Philippine history sparked inspiration in the world when these forces sided with the masses and helped usurp the tyrannical ruler and everything that he stands for.to help orient the clueless: Estrada represents the old power and authority bestowed by colonial Spain to its governors and commanders in the Philippines, which later become the law and the rulers of the land that the whole nation was subjugated under its tyranny, exploitation, corruption, deception, cruelty and blasphemy. Marcos, being part of the Pilipino underground network to ensure that the divine destiny of the Pilipino people would someday usurp these conquerors, has tried to break their grip from power when he was a president. But he needed to undo the 300+ years of social conditioning and Darwinian selection that colonial Spain has left the nation crippled in the valley of death. The process that he started needed the enlightenment and a moral revolution of the whole nation to break-through from such legacy. a continuing process of revolution and progress through due process is the driving force for the ascension of the Pilipino nation. Thus, a crisis temperature is maintained in the Philippines to foster and incubate the growth and the development of the Pilipino society. The crisis temperature in the Philippines has three visible purposes: one is to break the power and the authority of the colonial legacy, second it serves as the melting-pot to unite the Pilipino people as a whole nation, and third the most important is to serve and empower the ascension of the masses through the moral revolution. The funny thing, behind these events is the force and power that the whole of Asia would have used to usurp the United States' menacing sphere of influence in the region. But as it turned-out the United States has volunteered to remove such a negative factor (amongst other extra-judicial means), and the freedom and ascension from such change is realized in the Philippines. The tiger in Asia is invested for the enlightenment and ascension of the Pilipino people, to which makes its potential limitless only to its heart's desires. As options are closed, new opportunities opens up. The Pilipino people would forevermore embody the defiance against any form of tyranny and such defunct ways of governance such as communism and fascism.
