Political Wrongness

Mali man ang mga bagay na ginagawa mo noon, maaaring tama na ito ngayon. Sa sobrang kaadikan na ng tao sa "political correctness", bumagsak na tayo sa correctness ng wrongness. 

Hindi ko na gustong isa-isahin pa ang maraming bagay patungkol dito. Pero bilang buod, ito na ang nangyayari ngayon. Ang taong gumagawa ng maraming mali, bulgaran, nagsasalita ng hindi maganda at walang pagtatangkang itago ang mga ito, ang tawag sa kanya ng marami ay totoong tao. At kung magsalita lang siya ng kahit isang patungkol sa kabutihan, papalakpakan na ng marami at lalong sasabihing totoong tao nga talaga siya. Marami pa ang iidolo at susundin ang kanyang ehemplo. Dadami ang pilosopo.



Pero kung ikaw naman ang isang tao na sa kabuuan ng buhay mo ay sumusubok na magtimpi, magpasensya, gumawa at magsalita ng mabuti at pagkatapos ay nakitaan ng kahit isa lang na di kaaya-ayang pagkilos, ikaw na ngayon ang pinakamasama. At lahat ng sasabihin mo ay di na kapani-paniwala dahil ikaw ay ipokrito. At sa kabila ng mabubuting gawa, siya na ngayon ang kasuklam suklam at pinakawalang kwenta at kabastosbastos na tao sa paningin ng marami. Wala na siyang gagawing tama at wala nang magtitiwala.

Gusto nyo ba ko magbigay ng example ng mga nasa itaas? Wag na. Alam nyo na kung sino o ano ang mga yan at paniguradong may naiisip na kayong halimbawa kung sino sila sa buhay nyo. At sana, di mo pagsisihin sa huli na kasama ka pala sa may ganitong pananaw.

Don't Judge, Read First

"Judging" is one of the most common words you will hear or read about. If you dislike or disagree with something or someone, you can't just say it directly or you will most probably be accused of judging. It's like for some, you just need to get along with what others do. You need to tolerate, they say.

Not going to the extremes like murder, rape, etc, there are certain human acts that we really can't just agree with. We have to make a stand since how we behave as human beings is based on our fundamental beliefs and characters. What would be your individuality like if you just go with the flow with about what everybody thinks, like and do?

So what does this got to do with judging? Judging is assuming. If you see one thing, then you can say that thing. Saying more than that is assuming. If you see someone punches a person in the face, you can say that violence is bad. That is not judging. You are judging though when you say that the person who punched is the one in the wrong side. There might be a sound reason for his aggression and that’s what you do not know. And you can’t judge him on that.


It’s a normal behavior for humans to justify the things we do wrong. We have to defend ourselves with reasoning. And the reasons behind what people do, we can’t judge them. But on the things we see that they do, we can always tell if they are bad or good. We can call them as we see them. And it is not judging.

The H Word

Hypocrisy is a word thrown around by many for those people who try to remind us about what good things are and which ones aren't. It’s like when a person did one thing wrong in the past, he can never be authoritative anymore to identify what a mistake is. I disagree that hypocrisy is the apt word for them but they sure get a lot of this name-calling every day.

In the past, we have these so called traits.  Like self-control which is to constrain yourself from doing away from the urges for the greater good, decency for doing things at the proper place and time and discipline for acting up right in all circumstances.



A person may have all of the above characters but that does not mean he won’t fall in doing the wrong things. There is still what we call weaknesses. And if it ever happens to him, it does not mean he’s a hypocrite. Mistakes are part of living. Being aware of doing something wrong is better than trying to justify what obviously is wrong while trying to put down the good words of others against it by using the word hypocrite and hoping that it will make his deed right.
