This commie hippie Thomas van Beersum must be deported

If I were present during their protest, I would have to throw him with glass jar and expose his communist sympathies.

If I were present during their protest, I would have to throw him with glass jar and expose his communist sympathies.

This morning when I opened my Facebook account after more than 24 hours of resting, I was bombarded with postings and comments from my friends about this viral photo of this Dutch communist hippie Thomas van Beersum berating an ordinary policeman named PO1 Joselito Sevilla.

This man from Netherlands was undiplomatic enough by saying “You are the ones that are hurting us! You started this conflict! Why are you doing this?” to PO1 Sevilla.

And yet this same person justified his actions through his Facebook account and encouraging the policeman to join their cause in next year’s State of the Nation Address or SONA.

You are wrong, Mr. Thomas van Beersum. The ideology you are fighting for has been shunned by the rest of the world including China, who adopted capitalist free-market system. You are naive enough to say that coercive collectivism like communism is the answer of our economic, political, and social shortcomings. I think you need to open your eyes that the world you are living with is imperfect and total equality of outcome that your bankrupt cause has been fighting for many years. You didn’t even search when you were in Netherlands that your benefactor, Jose Maria Sison, fled to your country to escape criminal liabilities that he has been doing for many years like killing one of my distant relatives, former NPA commander Rolly Kintanar.

Mr. Thomas van Beersum, you have to realize that Filipino people will not going to tolerate anyone who wants to overthrow a corrupt democratic government and replace it with more corrupt and genocidal communist government, no wonder Jose Maria Sison and his cohorts in the mountains and in the Congress, failed to convince the silent conservative majority Filipinos to support your bankrupt cause, let alone of taking over the government. The ideology that you are fighting for to be imposed in our country has claimed several lives not just in the Philippines, but also in Cambodia, China, Cuba, Eastern Europe, Laos, North Korea, Russia, and Vietnam, no wonder many of these countries already abhorred that ideology or if not, they had to change their economic strategies to the extent similar to free market capitalism than to central planning communism. Fighting for an utopian communism is like fighting for a dystopian Nazism.

Our law way back the Commonwealth days states that like you who is not a Filipino citizen, cannot interfere in our internal political affairs like joining protest march with the end-goal of overthrowing our flawed democratic government and replacing it with more corrupt and repressive communist government run by few Politburos. Violating of that provision will result to your deportation. You should have well-versed enough not just to our laws, but also to our political, economic, and cultural attitudes of our compatriots who fortunately, never share your cause.

If I were you, you have to leave the country to save your face or else, a proper authority like the Bureau of Immigration will deport you and never return to the Philippines.

Waving three scums and murderers in a May Day rally

When I arrived home from my summer class, I saw a photo above on my Facebook newsfeed shared one of my mutual friends where demonstrators of Kilusang Mayo Uno were waving the posters with photos of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Zedong. I am not impressed in their fanaticism with these people especially with Lenin, Stalin, and Mao because these personalities were one of the responsible of all ills of the 20th century in the name of total equality, Communism, and responsible for 100+ million deaths in less than 100 years, probably surpassed the total casualties of WWI and WWII.

The premise for absolute equality of Communism does not make sense because everyone of us has different interest to pursue in life with different result. We cannot simply stole the money of a productive person to empower a lazy person in a violent manner, this is wrong. Freedom does not equate quality of outcome and to equate it is a plain slavery. Freedom comes and flourishes from and within yourself, not from coercion by other individual. Therefore, communism failed in Russia, Eastern Europe, and China because their leaders were not capable to live with the proletarians, but they rather want to live more than bourgeoisie. Proletarians want to prosper in their lives without a coercion from their leaders in the Politburo.

Capitalism, although not perfect, assures well-being for millions around the world and gives freedom for us to choose which goods and services ought to use for our daily lives. Capitalism rewards those who excels in respective fields of live like Bill Gates who started from nothing to become one of the richest persons on Earth through innovation and marketing his patented computer software products of Microsoft. Persons like him would not excel under communism. If not for the creative destruction of capitalism, we won’t have to live on what we have right now and these commies cannot buy or use computers or tarpaulins to print the photos of their idols. Even Karl Marx realized when he was still living that communism is impossible without passing the stage of capitalism in which most Filipino commies cannot grasp.

My advice to them: work, save money, then start your own business even in a small one like selling barbeques in streets or selling school supplies to help the children to continue studies to succeed someday.

11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and its long-term effects


World Trade Center fuming after it was dropped by two hijacked commercial airplanes by the members of the Al-Qaeda.

Today is the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center twin towers in Manhattan, New York and at a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. These three successive suicide attacks with the first two at the World Trade Center and the last one at the Shanksville, Pennsylvania caused millions of dollars of damages and thousands of casualties.

The 9/11 attacks was also the start of the 21st century as the events before the attacks was the continuation of the unrivaled peace and prosperity of the United States for almost ten years after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The economic, political effects and the American’s reaction of the 9/11 was the triggering reason for the War of Terrorism initiated by the United States and its allies like the United Kingdom and Australia to curb the spread of Islamic extremism through Al-Qaeda as a result of faulty American foreign policies regarding in Middle East, way back the Arab-Jewish partition of Palestine.

A month after the 9/11 attacks, the United States and its allies including the Philippines attacked Afghanistan in order to hunt Bin Ladin, the principal perpetrator of the 9/11 attacks and to dismantle the Al-Qaeda movement, Islamic extremist movement founded by Osama Bin Ladin.

At first, the Coalition Forces led by the United States succeeded in overthrowing the Taliban-led government in Afghanistan, the principal allies of the Al-Qaeda movement fighting the Coalition Forces. However, it did not bring an everlasting peace in Afghanistan until this moment as the newly-installed democratic government with the help of the Coalition Forces have to fight the militias sympathizing the causes of Taliban and the Al-Qaeda.

The goal of the Coalition Forces to capture Osama Bin Ladin had been failed as Osama managed to escape to Pakistan and had to hide in a safety compound near the capital of Pakistan, Islamabad. He was killed later by the US soldiers on 2 May 2011.

The second major war by the United States and its allies like United Kingdom, Australia, Poland, and Spain attacked Iraq led by Saddam Hussein with the objective of destroying the alleged weapons of mass destruction possession by Iraq which was later found out that there was not.

Second objective was to overthrow Saddam Hussein from power as he was allegedly collaborated with the Al-Qaeda to attack the US during the 9/11. The US and its allies fulfilled their mission as Saddam was overthrown from power, months after the start of the Iraq War due to decreasing support from Iraqis and continuous attacks by the US and UK forces. Saddam hid after his deposition in a compound in Iraq and captured in December 2003. He was tried before the court conducted by the Iraqi Interim Government and was executed by hanging for his crimes committed against the humanity.

The same as in Afghanistan, the deposition of Saddam Hussein from power did not bring everlasting peace in Iraq as ethno, political, and religious factions from the sectors of Iraqi society fought for control of the whole Iraq vacated after Saddam’s deposition.

The reactions after the 9/11 attacks by Al-Qaeda created more deaths than what happened during the 9/11 itself as the US and its allied countries had to spend money, waste soldier and civilian lives just to eradicate the Islamic extremism, indirectly created by the faults of the US, half centuries back.

The 9/11 attacks ended the US monopoly in cultural, economic, and political supremacy as the competing countries like China, and Russia used the 9/11 events to consolidate their respective strengths while the US was suffering from cultural, economic, and political downturns as a result of the 9/11 attacks.

The 9/11 attacks proved that the United States was not an indivisible country as they thought. It was proved also that the United States should not be forceful on spreading their cultural, economic, and political aspects in other countries especially Iraq and Afghanistan.

The United States should learn on how to work with harmonious diplomacy in these globalizing world where almost all cultures not just Americans spreads widely that conflicts are inevitable and be solved only with cooperation and diplomacy. In order for the United States to maintain its superpower status in a long-run, they should realize that they have to learn the sensibilities of other cultures while spreading their cultural, economic, and political aspects to them. 

We should remember that a more prosperous, peaceful, and open-minded United States leads into a more more prosperous, peaceful, and open-minded world.



Georgia’s economic transformation and the Philippines should learn from them

Georgia is a small country in Caucasus region, sandwiched by giant neighboring countries of Russia and Turkey.

Yesterday, I read an article through the Business Insider website written by Simon Black of Sovereign Man featuring the economic miracle of Georgia, a small country with historical significance, sandwiched by giant neighboring countries of Russia and Turkey.

That article states the economic reforms done by the recent government of Georgia led by Mikheil Saakashvili like easing the cost-of-doing business to the level of developed countries, implementing flexible labor laws that made hiring and firing employees easier, cutting the tax rates to the level of most competitive countries like Singapore, and many others.

Free-market economic reforms makes Georgia among one of the most competitive countries not just in Caucasus but for the entire post-Soviet countries. Free-market economic reforms encourages foreign investors to invest in Georgia without much risks of red tapping and other constricts which stimulates economic growth there as more Georgians have an option for employment at home and improves the infrastructure which is vital for Georgia to go forward in the years to come.

Georgia’s economic reform should be the inspiration among the leaders of the Philippines to enact a necessary economic reforms in order to alleviate the poverty problem like more employment opportunities at home, to become more economically competitive with the rest of the world, to improve our vital economic infrastructure, and to reduce the endemic problem of corruption at all levels in our society.

The Philippines has no reason not to reform economically as our country has enough natural and human resources to use in order to compete with the rest of the world in economic terms. The problem on why our country is not competitive economically is because of our protectionist laws (stipulated to our constitution) that constricts further economic growth like limiting potential foreign investors to invest to only 40% in establishing or acquiring a firm in contrast in other countries where foreign investors are allowed to invest 100% from their own capital without a necessity of a local partner to tap 60% or something unlike here, inflexible labor laws that limits further job creation like prohibiting foreign citizens to practice their respective professions and difficulty to fire inefficient employees, rampant red tape and corruption in the government workplace which further rises the cost-of-doing businesses here in our country especially among foreign investors, outdated infrastructure and educational system that needs further investment. These constricts should be going to address by our leaders if we want to have an economy that is a prosperous, a competitive, and a sustainable in relative with the rest of the world.
