Filipinos Lost Jose Rizal
July 30th, 2007 posted by pcs under Uncategorized


       “My dream,” wrote Rizal to a Spanish governor-general, “was my country’s prosperity . . . I would like the Filipino people to become worthy, noble, and honorable.” 

        On another occasion Rizal also wrote: “I would like the Filipinos to be Brilliant, Enlightened, Intelligent, and Progressive.”

        Ever since Rizal was executed by the religious morons in the 19th century, the same religious morons carried on with power and authority to be in charge especially of the system of education in the Philippines. Indeed, we were taught in our schools, colleges, and universities to believe and to have faith in the holy bible that clearly states: “Love not this world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not with him.” John 2:15.  Jesus, the loving son of God also preached: “If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26

       Thus, as the Sick Man of Asia, even the Knights of Rizal continue to ignore what Rizal was saying to all Filipinos more than a century ago. Only people in foreign countries believed, followed, and substantiated what Rizal was saying. After Rizal’s execution, the president of the Berlin Society for Anthropology, Ethnology and Pre-history, - Dr. Rudolph Virchow, said: “In him we lose not only a true friend of Germany and German science but also the man who had the knowledge and the energy to introduce modern ideas and thinking into the Philippines.”    Poch Suzara

wala naman talagang nagagawa ang Knights of Rizal e. pa-cute lang yun ng mga matatanda.

in fairness naman sa mga religious universities na nagtuturo ng tungkol sa bible, hindi rin lang naman yun ang problema e. actually, maraming factors ang problema, hindi lang religion. dahil kung religion ang problema, pwede akong magbilang ng progresibong mga bansa na relihyoso ang mga gobyerno at paaralan.

Bakit sa pilipinas hindi gumagana ang “power of god?”Doon sa mga progresibong bansa na sinasabi mong epektibo ang religion sa gobyerne at paaralan, ginagawa ng gobyerno ang trabaho nila. Sa pilipinas, anong ginagawa ng gobyerno natin sa ilalim ng “power of god?”

Sa ibang bansa ang gumagana ay the power of human intelligence dehil importante sa kanila yung power of human decency.
Dito sa ating bansa mas importante ang the power of human stupidity for the sake of our love for divinity. Poch Suzara

During the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th century, millions upon millions of Filipinos prayed daily to Mary, Mother of God, to pray for us sinners. Today, in this 21st century we need more prayers. More and more sinners are born every day and night. Approximately 1.7 million sinners born yearly adding to our already over- population problems in the Philippines at present

As college-educated individuals, Filipinos have yet to wonder why in the race among Asian nations to seek a higher standard of living, we Filipinos are left far behind too sick even to participate in the race to seek a higher standard of thinking?

Philippine foremost historian Teodoro A. Agoncillo summarized it quite honestly: “Self-deception is the worst tragedy of the Filipinos as a people.” Poch Suzara

We rave about corruption here and there and everywhere in our sick society. Corruption in government and private industries. Corruption in the military and in the priesthood industry. We hardly notice, however, where the seeds of corruption come from. It comes from our schools, colleges, and universities where they teach corrupt values and corrupt beliefs. We are, indeed, the products of a corrupt system of education.

It’s the easiest thing to corrupt people. Take normal boys and girls in school and teach them to believe the following:

· To believe that we are all guilty of sin until we have no more pride, dignity, and self-respect.
· To believe that faith is always better than reason and that daily prayers are the daily solutions to daily problems.
· To believe that the saints of God are more worthy of emulation than to spread the ideals of human brotherhood.
· To believe that it is needless to improve social conditions because there is a better life to come after death with God in heaven.
· To believe that it is needless to save our minds and hearts for the kingdom of man as what is crucial is to save our souls for the next life in the kingdom of God.
· To believe that the voice of the people is the voice of God.
· To believe that the revealed truths need not be revealed as such truths are far beyond human understanding.
· To believe that to love God’s mother up there is far more precious than to love our own mothers and grandmothers down here.
· To believe that God will always provide for those who are good, even if they were good for nothing.
· To believe that pain, suffering, misery, poverty, and squalor are paths toward eternal happiness up there. Never mind the importance of the growth and maturity of our nation down here.
· To believe that success in life can only be measured in terms of money. Never mind where the money comes from as long as we have plenty of it.
· To believe finally, that no matter what sin or crime we commit, as long as we continue to believe and have faith, there will always be available from God at any time the forgiveness of sin and crime.
Do this to millions of children in school and we have the ideal Christians. We also have criminals. A person who longer respects himself can no longer respect anything. One who does not love himself, cannot love anything. If he hates himself, he hates the world.

It is in our system of education where we learn our sense of worthlessness and our unspeakable burden of sin; where the stage is set for corruption as a way of life. Indeed, the real cause of corruption in our sick society is not due to lack of discipline. On the contrary, it is discipline based upon sick values and sick beliefs. Owing to our system of education, we learned to have no faith in the best of the Filipino capacity to think . We do not love our country nor do we love fellow-Filipinos. We only love what makes for the Filipino incapacity especially as inspired by silly divinity.

We certainly live under a culture of corruption. The worst of it is the corruption of human intelligence. Corruption by education is certainly keeping the Filipino spiritually poor as a people and keeping the Philippines morally bankrupt as a nation.

By Poch Suzara

Before he died at the age of 98, mathematician-logician-philosopher- humanist Bertrand Russell said, “If we must die, let us die sober, and not drunk with lies.”

To me, in my simplicity, as a great admirer of Jose Rizal, I believe he died sober; but those in power who had him executed at the age of 35, and those who concocted his retraction story, were the ones drunk with brazen lies.

I defy anyone who believes Jose Rizal, the first great humanist the Philippines has ever produced, died a coward engrossed in childish fairy tales.

And why do I say Rizal was a great humanist? What else do you call a man who was committed to the application of reason and science and to solving human problems of the here and the now?

What else do you call a man who deplored efforts to denigrate human intelligence, who did not seek to explain the world in supernatural terms, and who did not look outside nature for salvation? A man who wanted to leave this world one day a better place than he found it.

What else do you call a man who valued scientific discoveries that have contributed to the betterment of human existence? Who was concerned with securing justice and fairness by eliminating discrimination and intolerance in society?

What else do you call a man who attempted to transcend divisive parochial loyalties based on race, religion, gender, nationality, creed, class, sexual orientation, ethnicity and who worked for the spread of common human decency?

What else do you call a man who believed that developing his creative talents to the fullest constituted the greatest happiness in life for the here and the now?

What else do you call a man who believed in the cultivation of moral excellence, respected the rights of others, believe in human integrity, and was open to critical and rational way of thinking?

What else do you call man who was concerned with the moral education of children? Who wanted to nourish them with the passion for reason, love, and compassion?

What else do you call a man who rejected the theologies of despair, the ideologies of violence, and the sacraments of mediocrity?

And finally, what do you call a man who believe in optimism rather than pessimism, hope rather than despair, learning in place of dogma, truth instead of sacred lies, joy rather than guilt and sin, tolerance in place of fear, love instead of hate, compassion over selfishness, beauty instead of ugliness, and reason rather than blind faith?

Jose Rizal, indeed, believed in the fullest realization of the best and noblest that anyone is capable of as a human being. He was the greatest of Filipino humanists. And he died intellectually sober, not drunk with religious lies.

To Jose Rizal, wherever you are, more than all the angels in heaven, I have the greatest love you as a fellow human being, and I have the highest respect for you as a fellow Filipino.
