on the philippine collegian, stupidity


the philippine collegian

to be honest with everyone, i know im not the right person to talk about the things going around in school (university of the philippines-diliman). however, i feel that there is something really wrong going around especially with how the members of the phil collegian attack their problem.

it has been quite sometime when we see the staffers of the official student publication of the school rant and rally around campus at the same time a halt in the publication of the school paper. they say that freedom of the press is supressed and what not. i dont blame them for having this reaction to certain policies made by the administration, but the thing is, they never explored the idea of a compromise.

they say that what the administration really wanted was something really simple. a more efficient way of choosing the publisher. however, the staffers feel that this is a form of 'supression.' yeah right?! its more of a symbolic violence to me. either way, why wont they just compromise if serving the interest of the students is what they are really after? i know, its crazy.

hope i didnt offend anyone. these are merely opinions of a neurotic individual.

on stupidity

i was watching news on tv yesterday and i was shocked by one of the reports. the families of the victims of the ultra tradgedy were demanding abs cbn/ 71 dreams foundation to help them. that is either stupidity or shamelessness (wrong spelling right?!)

the fact these people are demanding a foundation to help them is stupid. foundations were created out of the altruistic tendencies of individuals and as such, should never be demanded of help. these people should even be thankful that someone is helping them. they are so ingrateful. i hope someone explains to them that you cant sue a foundation just because they didnt help you. ughhhh! they are just so irritating.

talk about poverty and desperate actions.

i'm so glad to see that i'm not the only one annoyed at the kule's reaction.

keep updating! we need more people who can voice out their opinions like you [i'm too spineless - he he].

How true. They've been brainwashed by all that ideological rhetoric that they've forgotten that they serve the students' interests, not the interests of left-leaning, anti-admin or whatever groups.
On stupidity, you can't blame them plutz. I mean, they're dirt poor, desperate... and do you honestly think they're educated enough to know what they can and cannot do or expect from others? they don't know any better, and it's not really by any fault of theirs.
