Philippine Political NORMS - ... BAYANIHAN is now the norm that the Filipino people follow. Farmers that helped each other in moving “bahay-kubo” used the term “bayanihan” and this is where the norm came from (KARAPATAN, 2011). In today’s time, the norm “bayanihan” is based on all form of social injustice that is seen as excessive in the eyes of the people or an event or phenomena that triggers emotional attachment of the Filipino people (KARAPATAN, 2011). This has a lot of effects in shaping politics in the country. These norms encourages and strengthens the Filipino people in helping one another in times of need and this can be a channel in letting the voice of the people heard in politics (KARAPATAN, 2011)....   [tags: philippine politics, religion]

The Philippine Culture - ... It takes me back to fiestas in the Philippines. Fiestas are one of the ways the Spaniards employ to get the attention of these gullible Filipinos for them to consider Christianity. Since Filipinos are naturally happy and thankful people , they wanted to have an excuse to celebrate and have feasts for whatever reason. The Natives did not care at all what were the reasons for their celebration. They just wanted an excuse to have a feast. With feast, there is always food.

Philippine War - The Philippine War I don’t believe the Philippine War was justified. There are more ways than war to solve the annexation of the Philippines.

The ratio of dead to wounded was higher than it was in the civil war which is considered one of the saddest wars in this country’s history. In the civil war, the ratio was one wounded to five killed, where as in the Philippine War, the ratio was one wounded to twelve killed....   [tags: essays research papers] 579 words

To accept the perception that the inefficiency of the bureaucracy is the main culprit in the failu re of government is to grant the dichotomization of the orientation of governance and the administration of its affairs....   [tags: social issues] 4557 words

War of Philippine Independence - War of Philippine Independence Filipinos are equally heirs to a second great missionary enterprise after Spanish: United States efforts to foster in our country institutions of government and attitudes toward life derived from American experience and faith in democratic ways.1 Originally a port of call for Yankee traders on their long voyage to China, our country became a source of sugar, pepper, hides, and hemp. There was very little in a way of immediate economic interest to make our country of special concern to Americans by the time the Spanish-American War brought Commodore George Dewey's fleet to Manila Harbor to do battle with the Spanish flotilla on the night of April 30 and the morning of May 1, 1898.2 The Spanish-American War of 1898 provided the opportunity for Filipinos to get rid themselves of Spanish rule....   [tags: Papers] 837 words

Universalizability and Philippine Supreme Court Cases - Universalizability and Philippine Supreme Court Cases ABSTRACT: The requirement that legal reasoning be universalizable is so unquestioned as a legal doctrine that it is practically axiomatic. Recently, two Philippine Supreme Court cases have been decided in a manner that apparently dispenses with this requirement. I discuss these two cases in the light of the requirement. I conclude that the requirement, rather than being diminished by the two cases, has actually maintained its axiomatic status on the basis that the reasoning in the two cases is deficient: the first either for inequality in treatment or for lack of clear guidance, and the second for the failure to appear impartial....   [tags: Criminal Justice]
