Regarding Noynoy Aquino's speech in UP Diliman
We've all witnessed the day Noynoy Aquino being given an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws in the prestigious University of the Philippines in Diliman. To others, he having a degree is worthy all after such "contributions" to the Society, that in fact may consider it as questionable.
And in his speech after conferring the honorary degree, again that President of the Republic called every student to join for the change in the society. That he even compared the society to UP, the Ikot Jeep and even urging a call to fix the rusty machine of the society.
If so, especially in fixing that machine in a rusty state, why not replace it with a new one instead? Most people, especially the toiling masses would think that how come you ought to fix it even thou it is rusty to the core? Will it run better? I doubt.
Once I even heard this as he said:
"creating an environment for agencies, including the Armed Forces of the Philippines, to act with dispatch on malfeasance in governmencreating an environment for agencies, including the Armed Forces of the Philippines, to act with dispatch on malfeasance in government"
Such words are rather concieved to be a sentiment than to be given actualization as rampant corruption remained still, whether big or small scale regardless of the Reforms and measures taken. Every Government practice nowadays became tainted with corruption since most of Government Employees nowadays are becoming Bureaucrat-Capitalists thinking much of his/her appointment as an official as a mere source of income.
And speaking of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, that Corruption thing, since nearly ruined their reputation alongside their Fascistic, oppressive action in the name of Order and Security, obviously doing their job as a maintainer of the rotten system. That, they also worked as professional lumpens ranging from kidnap-for-ransom to drug smuggling. For sure few honourable men amongst them knew much the dark side of the ranks especially after the acts made by the Generalship.
Back to the topic,
Aquino's words are obviously, like those of his predecessors trying to vent such sentiment that may possibly, or impossibly be realized as the system remained rotten to the core. That outside the ampitheatre, activists vent out their hatred against the administration especially after slashing the budget on education. How come Noynoy Aquino be given a citation and a right to speak all after slashing the budget on education, of having less subsidy in State Universities such as U.P.?
After all, regardless of his words, it is still not enough. U.P is even becoming a den of the elite than of the working people after all thanks to the Tuition Increase.
