I came here and saw the deep suffering of expat under pinoy rule. “These people need a bit if cheering-up, I said to myself, and so I try, to the best of my ability!” 🙂 On the other hand there is also good fun to read these stories of exquicite stupidity and childishness. It’s obvious that the Lord wanted, on this Earth, a playground where people never grew up, “and see, He created it!” 🙂
Anyway, it has been discussed if pinoy stupidity stems from the colonizer, but empiric studies seems not to confirm this. Even though the spanish cannot be said to be the most intelligent in the World, except being the most cruel, arrogant and greedy people, it is obvious that you would have some of the same stupidity in Spain nowadays, if it came from them, but you don’t!
It is good to see that the spanish are being punished for their wickedness! Soon their nation shall fall apart, but this is a small price for the evil they have visited upon the Earth the last 500 years, torturing, killing, looting! Their crime shall never be forgotten!
The pinoy pride on the other hand resembles much the spanish arrogance, so here there is obviously a connection through the blood! We must consequentially suspect that the stupidity have been lying there, ingrained for thousands of years, and that the Conquistador, though greedy and cruel, cannot take the honour for filipino stupidity, sad though it may be.
The rudeness, impoliteness and inconsideration for each other on the other hand, surely is the result of a slave-mentality, after hundreds of years of being treated worse than beasts by the spanish oppressor, they have become such!
But, instead of hating the original oppressor, Spain, which would be logical, they go on hating every foreigner and each other, which is not quite so logical. Maybe this is a clear proof of stupidity, or at least irrationality.
Cloaking it all with a beautiful, shiny veil of catolizism, God and masses, it all looks quite nice..
It is very difficult for an outsider to understand the pettyness, crab-mentality etc. but it is not unique for Philippines. All parts of the world which are rural, tribal and low or no education it will be the same. Where The Philippines differ (from other stupid countries) is that they are very proud of their stupidity, and try their best to institutionalize stupidity at every level of State, here they have been very sucsessful.
As they have nothing intelligible to talk about (This would take a too big toll on their heads) lowlife gossip is all they have, and so the spiral can only go downward.
As the truth is too hard to bear they come here, from time to time, pathetically ranting: ,”We”re not stupid, we”re Smart!!”……swearing…..misusing God’s name…then….”hahahaha”…like insane madmen…..pathetic!..Oooh, one almost would feel compassion, hadn’t it been for the ugly smell of the whole “package”.
Always the same ” recipie”, also a good proof of stupidity, not even being able to find a new angle.
