It should not be like that. We should make our own way of living, our own culture, and our own way of dealing with life. Given the multi-intellectual thinking of Filipinos, we are capable of doing so. We just need to help others to realize not to discriminate or be ashamed of their own culture but be proud of it and enrich it in any way they could. We need to see that our culture is a very fascinating one because it is overlapping with different cultures of different countries across the
Devlin would have thought the act of polyandry to be immoral and disintegrates the society however, being a moderate moralism he would not have wanted to intervene with the privacy of other unless the act has become very widely practiced and start causing harm to the society. However, if the was a law to be passed to make polyandry legal, Devlin would have disagree with this because once it has been made legal it will drive and encourage many to conduct this immoral act. Devlin did not say that every immoral act is to be prohibited. Devlin used the jury box morality of average right minded citizens where moral standards of behaviour are the standards of behaviour of a reasonable man. Will a reasonable man think the act of polyandry as something good and to be done?
However, humans’ egoism and selfishness disturb others’ freedom, because they think freedom is something that will solve their life problems and reduce responsibility from them. These circumstances make humankind incapable of using their freedom and create chaos. Thus, persons realize that it is necessary to create something that can control them and prevent chaos. And the example of comparison between authority and freedom is Jesus and The Grand Inquisitor in “The Brothers Karamazov”. On the one hand is Jesus
The universal human rights are so important in the country because Philippines is not an enlightened world where people love and trust each other. The Declaration of Universal Human Rights is an agreement that defines what human rights of all people are and as human beings, we are supposed to make them a reality - not a dream. The only problem today is that they are not widely promoted and taught as they should be at schools and by government. The universal human rights must be promoted and known in order for us to defend ourselves from violence, and also in order for those cruel rulers of the state to realize we have such things as universal human rights, that they and those oppressed are both humans and both have human dignity- therefore, both must be respected
These changes like increasing more security in areas or preventing people from going somewhere dangerous limit our freedom. But people are unsatisfied with us simply because people don’t want safety over freedom, they want both. So when H. L. Mencken, an American essayist and social critic wrote that “An average man does not want to be free. He simply wants to be safe,” his point of view doesn’t accurately describe our society as people want safety and freedom. As said earlier, our society relies on the idea that safety and freedom are both things that are necessities to the perfect life.
Divorce is not the solution to a broken marriage but the couples must be the one to solve their problems. Legalizing the Divorce Bill in the Philippines will not help Filipinos, especially the less fortunate. Just like the annulment didn’t. Couples will have Arguments and Misunderstandings and they should Cross that bridge when they come to it. To make a long story short, the debate whether to legalize or not, the Divorce Bill in the Philippines is unending.
However, some of the main reasons why couples end up in divorce are incompatibility and abusive relationship. The implementation of divorce in the Philippines will be beneficial for the freedom of those in failed marriages, for the protection of the abused spouses and for the well-being of the children. Divorce can be a way to freedom even for those who are from the marginalized sectors. Relationships are so intricate yet society strains to encourage us that relationship woes can easily be resolved. However, in reality, it’s not true.
Such effects were evident during the Marcos regime, where he implemented martial law in hopes of extending his term and abusing his power with regard to his own personal liking. Although Corazon Aquino paved way in the return of democracy in the Philippines, the ill effects of ineffective democracy continued to take over the Philippines. With the elites still in power, “democracy” in the Philippines cannot be considered as an ideal democracy. In relation with the author's claims, Democracy in the Philippines is indeed in a state of disrepair. Meticulous assessments and profound studies have depicted the 'democracy' in the Philippines as ineffective in terms of implementation and enactment.
The mere addition of an autonomous region isn’t enough. Moreover, because of this, certain situations from far regions wont get acknowledge from the central government. Thus, federalism should be adopted to recognize problems and give more hands-on solutions to different provinces Paraphrase: The critical reference to an Imperial Manila is drawn from the negative experiences of our fellow Filipinos (especially people far from Manila). It points toward a system of government that runs from the center, and where choices influencing regions, towns, and groups, are made by individuals who don 't have a clue about their situation. Generally speaking, the Philippines ' unitary and centralized system of government has not served well the requirements of most of the Filipino individuals who live outside of Metro Manila.
That’s why many of our people, especially on the church and department of human rights, opposed him and his ideals for exterminating drugs in the Philippines. At some point they are right, there are many ways to eliminate drugs in our country. But on our newly elect President’s point of view imprisoning people who are involved in drugs and after some time release them because they have paid bail is so wrong because for him the only way in eliminating drugs in the Philippines is to exterminate its very roots and that is the drug lords and
