Warlordism



"The country’s feudal structure is the material condition
that gives rise
to private armies and warlordism
but it is presidential patronage that
husbands this sub-system."

-Center for People Empowerment in Governance (CenPEG)

NSTP Alert

Pakiusap.
Kung mayroon kayo sa bahay ng mga sumusunod na kagamitan (scissors, stapler, staple wire, plastic strings, art paper, thumb tacks, big plastic bags), maaari bang magdala ngayong Biyernes. Samakatwid, hindi kailangang bumili pa. Gagamitin natin ang mga ito sa pagbuo ng banderitas para sa nalalapit na SocSci Week. Ipagbigay-alam ito sa iba. Salamat.

Maximize the library



"Borrow the books you already bought
with your (or your parents') tax payments.
They’re sitting at the nearest public library.
Buying books you’ll likely only read once is a money-waster.
If you do want to own a copy, make sure to buy it used"

"Patapos na ang unang buwan ng taon.

Mabilis ding lilipas ang Pebrero.
Halos hindi mo mamalayan, dadatnan ka na lang bigla ng Marso.
O thesis, kailan ka ba magkakaroon ng kaganapan?
Ayokong mabagot sa paghihintay.
Lagi kang may puwang sa aking kaibuturan."

  • Symbolic violence
  • Restorative justice
  • Mcjobs
  • Body politics

random thoughts

  • Puro awiting 'May Bukas Pa' ang kinakanta sa videoke ngayon. Epekto ito ng popular na teleserye sa Dos at marahil para paghugutan din ng inspirasyon para harapin ang ligalig ng 2010.
  • Agaw-atensyon ang isang manininda sa palengke dahil murang-mura lang daw ang benta niya sa mga bagong n'yang aning gulay at prutas mula sa Facebook.
  • Halos hindi ako makapaniwalang may sangay na sa loob mismo ng mall ang isang kolehiyo. Kakaiba na talaga mag-isip ang mga kapitalista-edukador.
  • Traydor ang teknolohiya lalo na sa pagkakataong 'di mo inaasahan. Babala ito sa mga nagtetesis. Marami nang buhay ang nasira : )
  • Tama si Joseph Stiglitz. Dapat magkaroon ng 'Green GNP' upang maisama ang masamang epekto ng mga gawaing pang-ekonomya sa kalikasan at para sa gayo'y mas maging makatotohanan ang pagsukat sa paglago o pagka-atrasado ng ekonomya.
