Kaninong Kaharian Ito? (Or Laro ng mga Trono Pinoy Version, Pilot Episode)

Sino ang Lakan Diyan? (O Laro ng mga Trono Pinoy Version Pilot Episode)

As an enthusiast of the histories of royal personalities and European noble houses, minsan naisip ko na ano kaya ang hitsura ng Pilipinas at ano ang mangyayari sa mamamayang Pilipino kung ang gobyerno ay mapapalitan ng monarchy?

from frolicmagazineonline.com
Siguro mabilis na matatanggap ng majority ng mga Pilipino ang monarchy.

Unang-una our political culture is all about the politician and not the policy or idealism at all. Our political inclination and affiliation gravitates around the personality of a certain candidate or government official. Like what other senators and politicans say, walang totoong political party sa Pilipinas, except for the Communist Party.

We venerate our mayors, senators, governors, or the president. Even preachers of some certain denominations will preach against anybody practising his freedom of expression and his being opinionated because the authority of these temporal rulers are divine, God-given.

So there is also a church that would be willing to anoint anybody who would claim sovereignty over the Philippines.

Pero teka, siguradong hindi mawawala talaga ang iglesia sa larong ito.  

At dahil maraming magiging kandidato para sa trono, siguradong magkakagulo yan. Sigurado ang civil war.

Just like the War of the Roses, ang unification ng Italy, the succession crisis during Queen Elizabeth’s time, powerful families will be shedding blood of innocent people just to establish their rule.

And then there will be only one.

Of course, this is just my imagination. And in my imagination I am certain that I’ll be pledging my allegiance to some powerful family in our province just to be conferred a noble title and a land to rule over, and the chance to be present in a monarch’s court.

This is purely an imagination, kaya please walang mapipikon na church people since nadawit kayo sa imagination ko.

Pero sa present-day Philippines, nabubuhay pa ang mga tunay na dugong bughaw- ang mga datu ng Muslim territories, ang mga datu ng mga lumad, at ang mga anak ng mga pamilyang Principalia.

But you know, it was rumoured that there was this one lady from a prominent Filipino, certainly from a principalia family in the Visayas, who tried to marry her eldest daughter to an English royalty. And when she failed to do so, she had ambitions of becoming one in her own country. In fact she behaved like one- buying tiaras and jewels, etc. When everyone was getting luxury cars for the wedding for their children, it was said that this lady provided her daughter a majestic kalesa fit for a princess as a wedding gift. She even surrounded herself with her own entourage of ladies-in-waiting, something that would even rival the ladies-in-waiting of Queen Elizabeth or those of Queen Margrethe of Denmark.

Sinabi ko na noon sa isang entry na pinangarap kong maging dugong bughaw, at minsan ay sinubukan ko na rin hanapin sa genealogy ng pamilya namin kung nanggaling ba ang clan namin sa isang principalia ng Laguna o ng Batangas. Ngunit sadyang mga magsasaka lang talaga ang mga ninuno naming, mga ambisyosong magsasaka. Hahaha!


Wala pa rin magkakaiba kung tayo ay mapailalim sa korona o isang pamahalaang itinaguyod ayon sa kalooban ng mamamayan. Hangga’t walang hustisya, hangga’t hindi nagbabayad ang mga kurakot, hangga’t nasa kapangyarihan ang mga pumatay at nagnakaw, ang Pilipinas ay mananatiling Kaharian ng Bulag, ng Pipi, at ng Bingi.

  1. kung magiging monarchy ang ating political system siguradong isang malaking PEPE ang hitsura ng ating bansa.

    Hindi ko lang talaga maimagine yung mga may katulong tawagin ang kanilang amo nang "MY LADY" slash "MY LORD". taragis, makakapatay siguro ako ng tao kung magkaganon. Yung taas noong kulang na lang maging mukha nila ang kanilang baba.

  3. Aliw ako sa pag aral mo ng iyong genealogy Mr Tripster! Wag mo maliitin ang pag sasaka dahil may kasabihan tayo (o kanta pala) na magtanim ay di biro. Layo sa topic ng post mo no? :)

  4. It certainly drives the point that we can never change the country's economy or its sustainability through the form of government. It still lies in the quality of people and it's level of patriotism and concerted effort to change. I like how you put humor in this post! :)

  5. Interesting take on Philippine politics. Nako, it's really all about personality (and money) here in our country. Btw, is Imelda the royalty wannabe?
