UNENLIGHTENED POWER; BEYOND BORDERS

Some opinions in the newspapers do recognize that electricity should be privatized in some way, that government power producers and distributors are for the most part inefficient. I have yet to hear anyone though who has given a proper perspective on the Meralco problem, not to speak of the Napocor problem.

Meralco’s power rates are called “unjust” by many, but they do not recognize that the nature of Meralco in itself is unjust.

PROPAGANDA ON OIL

It’s bad enough that oil is cartelized in the world. It’s worse that the three oil companies are getting flak for it, as though each price increase was some devious ploy to further rob our already suffering citizens of their hard-earned money.

I must admit that I am having a harder and harder time with each price increase of fuel. Everyone is affected. But until OPEC drastically shifts its structure, and until we are able to harness alternative sources of energy that are as efficient, all I can say is ‘touch luck.’

TAKING A HOLIDAY LITERALLY

It’s Labor Day again, they say, and we have to give our laborers an appeasement or gratitude of a sort.

Why should a day in the calendar be responsible for providing such wonderful things? What makes this holiday an especially significant time to call for some kind of justice which is supposedly not as prevalent in other times of the year? But of course this is all bollocks, and only politicians, paid-off media and gullible citizens would fall for this.
