Why does our government even participate in the ZTE scandal, time and again we have proven to be dependent on foreign investments as if we cannot stand on our own two feet.
Our youth do not show nationalism as well, our culture, a majority of it, is westernized.
One can say that there is a prevalence of OPM in our radio broadcasts, but unfortunately, they’re still patterned on western music.
Language barriers have crumbled therefore western influence will easily reach Filipinos.
Sa Panahon ni Rizal laganap ang pang-aabuso ng mga prayle; ang pamemera ng mga ito at pangangamkam nito ng mga lupain.
Gayundin sa kasalukuyang panahon, may mga tao ring namemera at nangangamkam, ngunit hindi na na ito mga prayle, ito na ay ang mga opisyal ng gobyerno.
Not only is Rizal a source of inspiration, but also his writings contain practical ideas that can possibly provide a solution to the flaws of our society.
In the immortal words of Jose Rizal, “Desiring thy welfare, which is our own, and seeking the best treatment, I will do with thee what the ancients did with their sick, exposing them on the steps of the temple so that every one who came to invoke the Divinity might offer them a remedy, “ we ought to follow his footsteps and reveal the root cause of the disease that has afflicted our present society.
Sa halip na gastusin nila ang pondo ng gobyerno sa ikauunlad ng bayan, kinakamkam nila an gang pera upang payamanin ang kanilang mga sarili.
Masasabi kong ang lagay ng pilipinas ngayon ay hindi nalalayo sa kalagayan nito sa panahon ni Rizal.
