Election will soon come to the Philippines for local and national candidates. How will they vote this time? Are they mature enough to vote for what is truly best for the country and help solve the lingererinmg problem? Will they forever follow like sheep to the slaughterhouse and vote for the most popular, vested interest, wealthy group, or vote for someone with proven dedication, honesty and desire to help eradicate graft and corruption. If it's the latter then maturity has definetely come and the country is safe.

The answer is no! Unfortunately, almost 50 years of American rule is not long enough to fully erase the Latinization of the Philippines due to 300 years of Spanish occupation. When the Philippines gained independence from the US in 1946, the generation who grew up and that has been Latinized during Spanish rule were still alive to pass their Latin ways to the younger generation. The US should've occupied the Philippines a little bit longer until all the generations who grew up during Spanish rule have all died, and so that their Latin ways will also be buried with them. Then the US can fully anglo-saxonize the young generation of Filipinos not born during Spanish rule, and only then will we have generations of Filipinos who will vote wisely.

Banana Republic, your name might represent an unstable rule but your comment is totally solid and correct I also believe, many will agree with you that had we stayed with U.S.A. the chances are that the country would have thrown away visteges of these arcaic customs and practices.

After South America gained independence from Spain, Simon Bolivar (the South American George Washington) refused to adopt democracy in South America (like in the USA) because he says democracy will only work in a nation full of saints.

Why cant the pinoy do it themselves?

Its like saying Im lazy because my parents are lazy. I therefore need someone to change me.

You can blame your parents but its not a good attitude if you want to move forward. Your kids then blame you for being lazy too and no one progress.

The Philippine media should be frank to the Filipino masses and not spoil them. The Philippine media shouldn't act like hypocrite politicians spoiling the Filipino masses to get some votes. More Filipinos should read candid Topix forums to get a slap in the face and so that they can realize the bitter truth about themselves.

I favor the frankness of western media, news and entertainment. It's bitter but very good for society. Some say it can't be done in none western and Japanese societies because their people are too onion skinned and react violently. Minimal freedom of speech and many media killings in those countries.

you really think if you had been colonized by America or Great Britain u'd actually be better!? Doesn't seem to be the case with Zimbabwe, India, Fiji and Burma! It depends on the people, if they don't want to change then they won't change even if you get the British to colonize you for a millennia!
That's right! That's why what the Philippines needs to do is to invite more anglo-saxonized indians and north east asians to become permanent Filipino citizens. The secret to malaysia's success is that significant percentage of the malaysian population are indians and chinese who chose to be anglo-saxonized adopting british ways. Modern chinese, south korean, japanese, HK, and singaporean business and executive classes are people who chose to wear western coat and ties and act like the british. They are very proud to enroll their children in prestigious london schools which is now become an asian elite family tradition.

Some 4th, 5th or 6th generation japanese-brazilians migrating to japan to become japanese citizens like their distant ancestors are shunned by the japanese because they have been latinized, lazy, and poorly educated due to growing up in brazil. I think that's what latinization means.

lol adopting 'British ways'? The Chinese are never 'anglo-saxonized', look at Hong Kong! Singapore! They barely speak British English or American English even after the fact that their official language is English! While Filipinos, you've been colonized by the US and you speak better than these guys and you're saying they're more 'anglo-saxonized'?

Chinese are one of the most hardworking people in the world, just because they're successful doesn't mean they're 'angl0\o-saxonized', it has nothing to do with that. I'm from Singapore and I have Chinese friends over there and their school, if you know what Chinese school are like, they give you really grueling homeworks EVERYDAY, these kids do it because the punishment is even more grueling. This is also applied in Malaysia. Just look at the 'vernacular school system' Malaysia and you'll know where the Chinese get their hardworking traits from. And im quite sure as hell they don't get it from the anglos, lol, that's the stupidest thing I ever heard.

What you can do to prosper is not by importing Chinese or Indian people, god knows how many regulation, rules and frictions that these people had to go through in Malaysia and as well as Singapore to tolerate each other. I don't think Philippines ready for that kind of diversity either seeing you can't even get along with one of your own race. What you can do is type in'Chinese school system' and apply it in schools over there. The trait is not a given, it's gained from years of learning and discipline!

And Chinese and Indian in Singapore and Malaysia are not anglonized, if you go to Little India, Kampong Glam in Singapore, you'll see the culture is still there.

Malaysia, you can go to Petaling and Brickfield in KL. Penang is very thick with culture. Ipoh is almost all Chinese. Chinese over at Singapore and Malaysia like to watch HK sitcoms and they don't speak English or listen to English unless they have to. Everybody wear western clothes nowadays in ingapore, even the Malays. In Malaysia, young people wear jeans and western clothes everyday. You have to go to the kampongs in northern Malaysia to really see the culture of the Malays. I'm Malay and I only wear the traditional clothes during wedding.

If the americans and british didn't point their cannons to force japan and china to open up to the world and adopt american and british ways, then china and japan will still be living in the medieval age, chinese and japanese executives would refuse to wear western barbarian business attires, refuse to adopt the barbaric senate system, refuse to adopt leading modern barbaric technologies, and their elite families wouldn't proudly enroll their children to barbaric british and US schools.

you are anglo saxonized and not latinized, so clearly the problem is not with being anglo saxonized or latinized. since you being anglo saxonized doesnt make your country any better, it must be somewhere else right?
