…about my blogs
By Apolinario Villalobos
Lest I be misunderstood, I would like to clarify that-
I am not against the Chinese people and their culture when I wrote the blogs about the West Philippine Sea. I am against their leaders who engineered the reclamation projects in that particular body of water much to the disadvantage of the Philippines and neighboring Asian nations….and, though belatedly realized by hypocrite international community, even the far-flung nations that use the passage in plying their maritime trade.
I am not against politics. I am against the pea-minded and abusive politicians and government officials who see glitter of gold in every project that they undertake for the Filipino people.
I am not against religion. I am against the arrogance and the unbecoming corruption of its church heads, ministers, priests, leaders, who invoke God and Christ as they release mouthfuls of Godly verses while competing with each other to win members, the more, the better for the fund to be raised.
I am not against the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL). I am against the people who structured the proposal with obvious betrayal of trust given to them by the Filipinos, especially, those from Mindanao who have more right in aspiring for lasting peace.
I am not against the Aquino family. I am against the late couple Ninoy and former President Cory’s son, President Pnoy’s cuddling of officials with questionable performance in his administration. I am against the president for not fulfilling his promise to listen to the Filipino people, his “bosses”. I am against his reactionary attitude – waiting for something disastrous to happen before doing something, such as not filling up vacancies in the Cabinets. To date, the COMELEC has no Chairman, yet….the PNP is without a Chief….etc.
I am not against the Philippine government. I am against the corrupt people who run it. I am against the graft-minded officials who manipulate the system for their advantage.
I am not against success of people who rose from “rags to riches”. I am against the successful ones who have no satisfaction in gaining wealth to the point of exploiting others. These are the professionals who make use of their learned craft in twisting truths.
I am not against the high technology. I am against the people who abuse its purpose.
I am not against the people who want to taste comfort in life. I am against their scheme at the disadvantage of their fellowmen in their desire to earn money at all cost.
I am not against life, otherwise, I will be contradicting Him….an ultimate mistake that I can do!
