    Ano Ang Pinakamalubhang Problema Ng Pilipinas?

    Ano Ang Pinakamalubhang Problema Ng Pilipinas?


    Pagbabayad sa Panlabas na Utang

    Kawalan ng Kapayapaan sa Mindanao

    Kakulangan sa Sapat na Edukasyon ng mga Kabataan

    Kahirapan

    Kawalan ng Sapat na Pantustos sa Kalusugan ng mga Mamamayan

    Kakulangan sa Imprastaktura sa mga Probinsya

    Kakulangan sa Trabaho

    Pagsasantabi ng Gobyerno sa Industriyang Pang-Agrikultura

    Pagkakaluklok sa mga Opisyal na Hindi Nagsisilbi ng Maayos

    Patuloy na Pag-Impluwensya ng mga Makapangyarihang Dayuhan sa Gobyerno natin para sa kanilang Itinatagong Interes

    Patuloy na Pagtaas ng Populasyon

    Pagkaka-Agrabyado ng mga Probinsya sa Hatian ng Kinikita ng Gobyerno

    Pagkagumon ng mga Kabataan sa Bawal na Droga



    maari nyo pong isaayos sa pagkakasunod-sunod, dagdagan at bawasan ang mga naturang suliranin ayon sa inyong sariling opinyon

    salamat po

    E bale yung sinabi mong kahirapan ang puno't dulo ng lahat ng problema natin. So yun ang lumalabas na pinakamalubha. Kasi pag nakakaraos na tayo sa kahirapan, meron na tayong sapat na pambayad sa utang natin, meron nang kaukulang pambayad para magkaroon ng sapat na edukasyon, pantustos sa kalusugan, sapat na pambayad sa imprastraktura, sapat ang trabaho, mapapangalagaan na ang agrikultura natin, at iba pa. Kung ang mga mamamayan natin ay edukado, bale wala sigurong maluluklok ng hindi karapatdapat na opisyal o yung nadadala sa popularidad at kilala bilang artista.
    Bale kasi yung pagtutugon laban sa kahirapan, ay kailangang mailuklok yung karapatdapat na mamumuno.

    Asked to use one word, I'd say "culture".

    Asked to use two words, I'd say "Wais culture".

    Asked to use one sentence, I'd say "It's all about our low regard for other people and our high expectations in return."

    We live in a society pervaded by a culture that enshrines the ability of a person to use his creativity to get ahead of others. A "wais" culture. "Wais" is a word that doesn't even have an equivalent in English. By definition, it's being crafty, but only specifically to get ahead of others.

    We are part of a nation that raises their young to develop this trait. If a child is "wais" he is a person who will be destined for great things in life. We are taught to smash the mold, go beyond what's expected of us, and ultimately succeed above all else.

    In reality, by doing so, all we ever really do is leave behind a lot of shattered molds that nobody will bother to clean up.

    At its very core, we are being taught by this culture to cut lines, plain and simple. Cut lines where we can so we can succeed faster. If success is worth fighting for, it's damn worth fighting dirty for.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one seeing what's wrong with that.

    The basic principle of a properly functioning society is having people who can fall in line. Looking at most industrialized countries, their economies are built not by the coat and tie guys on top, but by a stable base of proletarians who are more than happy to keep in line. They have cultures that reinforce that norm. Ask any Hindi about their prevalent caste system. Ask any Japanese hivemind office worker. Just ask.

    Life is a pyramid.

    Not everybody can be on top, and that's where the idea of "wais" fails.

    If you're in a line and it's wais to cut the line to get ahead, if everybody cuts ahead, then in the end the line will move even slower, or worse, not move at all. The same goes for society and everything that can use "line cutting".

    Imagine an entire country filled with line cutters.

    Line cutters who will glare at you if you don't let them cut the line.

    Yeah, that's us right there.

    The curse is in our culture and cultures are a lot harder to kill than bite-size presidents. There is no changing a culture on a small scale. You can't setup a rally that will change that. (When was the last time a rally changed anything anyway? 1984?) No coup will ever remove a culture, unless your goal is to unseat every single person in this country (which is gutter-stupid).

    If you can't see this big picture, no matter what you say,

    you're part of the problem.

    does that mean we are in for a terrible, slow and painful change if we ever want to solve this problem? or simply hopeless?

    EU stresses need for efficient government approach vs corruption

    (The Philippine Star)
    Updated March 04, 2010 12:00 AM

    MANILA, Philippines - The European Union (EU) underscored the need for the government’s responses and policies to be efficient, tailor-made and within a systematic and holistic approach to combat corruption and promote integrity.

    EU Ambassador Alistair MacDonald said in his remarks “A New Paradigm on Integrity and Human Rights: The EU Perspective” during the Second Bisyon 2010 Integrity and Human Rights Conference that corruption is not only a problem of the Philippines but of other countries as well.

    He explained that anti-corruption policy should include the elements of a clear political determination and a proper awareness of the problem from decision-makers, with transparent and accountable management and control systems; the determined prosecution and punishment of those convicted of corruption, and with the active vigilance and support of civil society at all levels.

    Question is, how to break this cycle?

    hindi lang naman kurapsyon at kahirapan ang ugat ng problema ng ating bansa, no.1 dyan ang kawalan ng suporta sa sarili nating produksyon pangalawa mga utang natin sa ibang bansa at higit sa kahirapan at problema sa edukasyon ay marami tayong kaartehan sa sistema ang patuloy nating ginagawa kaya di tayo makaangat-angat!
