I said it before, and I’ll say it again.
is the future.
And if we do not get along well with this upcoming super-power, we won’t be
part of that future at all. I have no statistics or any political study to
prove my theory. Just look at their major cities and how they are performing,
and you will understand the possibility of the return of the dragon empire.
Just look at every labels of any object around you and you will understand how
it difficult it would be to live in a made-in-China-less world. China
I have always been mesmerized by the beauty and history of
and its people
(particularly, I have an intense interest in the Chinese male landscape, but
that’s another story), its food, and the contemporary scenes of Chinese metropolitan
life. I have always keen interest in their empire building, then and now.
Empire building is something I would certainly enjoy doing in the near future. China
Having said this, I still do not understand why sovereign people of the
hostile towards the advances of Philippines but are very
servile when approached by the white peoples of the West? China
I think if we set the table for negotiations and business dealings which would benefit both countries, we will get along well. And we could be part of that glorious and prosperous future which the Chinese aim to achieve.
Instead, we choose to dim our reasoning with hate and stupid urban beliefs, and claim that the Chinese eat foetuses for breakfast and have dogs and cats as their main dish for their festivals. At least that’s how the dog-eaters and balut-mongers of the archipelago view them.
We choose to stand by the side of the Americans who promised us prosperity since…. since the word ‘never’ came into being. How many years have we traded with the Americans and listened to their promises, believing them to be our white brother, and we’re still swimming in the same pool of shit? Of course, there’s the corruption blah blah blah, but unfortunately we inherited that from our beloved US. Have we really benefited from Philippine-American trade relations? How many times has the
meddled in our history and politics just to protect their interests or pursue causes
that would benefit American interests, while we suffer and die? US
Ok, let’s say we’ve driven out the Chinese. And the disputed seas and islands, what are we going to do with that? We will open our doors to let US,
, or Australia or somebody
else to exploit them. How many times have we done something like this? And we
would usually argue that we are opening up to investors that would generate
jobs. Yeah right. Japan
I am not a Communist, but I think it’s quite obvious that it is high time to look for a new partner. I used to say it’s time to be with
But things have changed for me since my visit in the
year. I now have a very particular interest in the Philippines that I am
compelled to speak out and offer any support to suppress Chinese invasion. province of Palawan
It’s really funny how one’s fiery passion for an idea is easily smothered when personal interests are threatened. And this had me thinking, the simple fishermen would definitely want
out of those
territories because their livelihood is threatened. I want China out because
they are establishing their presence near China Palawan, and my
interest is threatened.
How about the Philippine government? What prompted our government to act right now but not way before when
elements of its presence earlier? Why now and not before? China didn’t act
quickly. Their presence was already there way long before. China
I am no traitor. I love the
. But I do not
intend to wage war against another foreign power just to be betrayed by my own
I am no traitor if I say that I will do business with the Chinese, if ever the time comes that they will invade our country. Traitors are those patrician families who have compromised our liberties and our history with foreign rulers in the past while they are exalted by our own kind in the hallow chambers of law and power. In the future you will see me with the Chinese, together with those men and women who bear the ancient names of landlords and tycoons; people decorated with words such as patriots, nationalists, and heroes. They will be seated with me as we buy and sell lands and titles of our future imperialist masters.
History will denounce me for my treason while it will honour those Filipino patricians and mestizos, even if they gave away the archipelago on a wholesale price.
Yes, it is a product of my imagination; it doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen in the past.
