TAIWAN’S FASCIST BUTCHERS BULLY PH OVER 14 DRUGGIST CRIMINALS

TAIWAN’S FASCIST BUTCHERS BULLY PH OVER 14 DRUGGIST CRIMINALS

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Taiwan, the renegade province of China ruled by the fascist butchers Kuomintang, has been bullying the Philippines lately. The bone of contention is PH’s handing over of 14 drug syndicate criminals to China, and Taiwan’s childish ranting is expressed by making it hard for PH expatriate workers to work in the province.

Taiwan is Kuomintang territory, and it remains to be so even if other so-called democrat parties have already emerged there. Kuomintang used to govern China under then Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek. Under the Kuomintang’s stewardship, China was divisively controlled at the grassroots by warlords who were actually malefactor elements with mafia Triad gangs as their underworld operators.

For the record, Chiang Kai Shek ordered the mass termination of perceived enemies, a genocide that resulted to over 30 Millions of butchery victims. So appalling was the condition of China during the extermination campaign that dwarfs Hitler’s Jewish pogrom several times over. Despite the demonic cruelties of the Kuomintang, the West kept mum about the genocide and instead chose to highlight the mass killers as allies worth their merit in the war against the Axis powers.

But history has the better judgement of the conflict in China, and that judgement led to the expulsion of the nauseating butchers by the victorious Maoist forces in 1949. Confined to the province of Formosa, the Kuomintang butchers were compelled to do their best to consolidate power and befriend the Western oligarchs to the hilt to procure favors for building a post-Civil War economy.

Kuomintang surely had luck on its side as a militarily weak China, which just suffered from the decades-old war with Japan before the civil war inflated to take down China’s economy further, cannot pursue a naval-supported hot pursuit of the demonic butchers. Henceforth, the same mad killers were able to recoup from loses, focused their resources in a territory so small as to be governed by a mere city mayor or so, till finally the painstaking efforts to build a modern Taiwan paid off.

That was the history of how a so-called Taiwan, pretentiously deluding itself to be a nation-state, opened up its borders to expatriate labor. Over 50,000 Filipino expats landed in Taiwan to do a diversity of tasks, from manual to information worker-type jobs.

Accustomed to the old life where malefactor Triad criminals co-looted the economy with the bureaucrats, Kuomintang’s genocidal instincts is on the upscale again. Mob power and fascist power are of the same make-up, as both mob and fascist need each other to support a criminal state. This time around, the fascist butchers have their eyes focused on the Filipino expats, even as they frontally bully PH in the same vogue as their old-time brutal slaughters of Chinese old folks, women and children.

Let it be declared that the Philippines is no dumping ground for Taiwanese mafia criminals, as that dumping ground is no other than Taiwan itself. The Philippine police and Interpol ought to round up as many Taiwanese Mafiosi operating in the Philippines as much as possible, and explicitly exhibit their faces via the tri-media and internet.

I remember very well a former faculty of UP Manila’s social science department who married with a Taiwanese Mafiosi. As per her story, Taiwanese criminals (disguised as businessmen) are in desperate need for Filipino women to marry to provide them legal cover for underworld operations. The young instructor used the Taiwanese criminal to secure funds for her studies (up to her doctorate), while the Taiwanese criminal used her for his legal cover.

Multiply such an experience by hundreds of times over, and you will be able to see for yourself the gigantic scale of operations of criminal Taiwanese Kuomintang babies in the Philippines alone. Cross over to the other countries of ASEAN and you will find out for yourself the same precedent.

How I wish the ASEAN could rise to become a powerful political union soon, and wage a massive ASEAN-wide crackdown of Taiwanese mafia syndicates. The faces of the criminals should be published in encyclopedia form and disseminated world-wide, with a WikiLeaks-type website echoing the same content of criminal faces.

Let the world know what Taiwan really is: a provincial enclave of fascist butchers cum mafia Triad criminals. China better reconsider its plan to integrate the criminal province into its territory, as it will be bad feng shui for an awakening mighty economy to include demoniacs within its broader territorial frame. Leave Taiwan to rot on its own in due time, as what befell many other demonic territories in the past.

SCOURGE OF CORRUPTION

SCOURGE OF CORRUPTION

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Good day to you fellow global citizens!

We just celebrated the 25th EDSA People Power Revolution in PH last Feb 25. A full twenty-five (25) years after EDSA, the country remains mired in the gargantuan problem of bad governance. Graft & corruption continues to be a scourge to this country, ditto for other countries.

Patrimonial interest groups of every shade continue to pillage the national coffers and the business sector. Business and politics are as intertwined as ever, thus barring efforts to bring down patron-client relations in the public and private spheres. No wonder that corruption remains high and could be, in fact, scaling up the heights in exponential fashion.

For as long as bad governance (‘bureaucrat capitalism’ is the Maoists’ term for it) remains in a vicious circle pattern, poverty will loom large in the near future. People’s incomes will be relatively stagnant, resulting to a stagnant if not declining middle income class. The high growth figure of 7% annual growth will therefore be meaningless, as the growth benefits largely those who are already very rich.

It doesn’t matter if the Philippines has already been urbanized, with as large as 68% of the population and/or the labor force residing in cities and big towns. Urban it is alright, yet replete with narratives of burgeoning urban poor populations.

So that brings us back to square 1, which is the self-perpetuating bad governance cycle. Whether the vicious cycle can be broken during the incumbency of the Aquino regime is doubtful. This government is being run by mediocre bureaucrats who are predominantly Jesuit-schooled boys and girls, who as a whole administer the public sector like “running a student council” as Sen. Joker Arroyo aptly described them.

Sadly for the country and other emerging markets, it is this governance side of the equation that cancels out the very positive outlook resulting from high growth. To note, it is this same scourge that had angered youthful Arabs in Tunisia and Egypt who watched their national leaders plunder the coffers like they were lusciously consuming personal candies, and the scourge is now driving many other Arabs to the streets to overthrow their corrupt leaders.

Good governance, strong institutions, and right policies are getting to be appreciated all the more by the youthful working peoples of the day, such as those in the Arab states. They are values that strongly appeal to the middle class of developing countries, while they resonate well for the young generation of Arabs. Amusing observations!

If the middle class of emerging markets can inspire the young generations of Arabs and countries with authoritarian regimes at the helm, well and good. But let the ‘regime change’ agents be reminded that overthrowing corrupt authoritarian and/or autocratic regimes do not an incorruptible government make.

Examine the history of the Philippines and other countries that are similarly situated, where bad governance perpetually churns itself out long after dictatorships were overthrown. Our neighbor Indonesia is similarly situated, and so are couples of countries in Latin America. The more so for African countries where the problem of racial integration complicates the scourge of corruption.

It seems like we badly hit a quagmire in PH and other developing countries, in regard to graft & corruption. Whether we shall all jettison efficaciously out of the quagmire in the short run is a delusion. And maybe never will there be hope in reforming governance institutions that would enable eradication of poverty and attendant problems.

As to the reason behind the scourge, I am reminded of the explanation of the pioneer sociologist Emile Durkheim. The noblesse gentleman cogitated that there will always be deviants in society, unless that society is populated by saints. Deviance, such as corruption, will always prevail at levels beyond the residual, to follow Durkheim’s logic.

Economists would have it that ‘rent seeking’ will assert itself in diverse circumstances, inclusive of the public sector. Rent seeking, or reaping profits beyond opportunity costs, explicates corrupt practices and no less. The UP School of Economics professor Emmanuel De Dios had already writ informative articles about the matter, so please try to search for his articles in university libraries and online.

I do perceive corruption as a scourge, even as I remain optimistic that in the very long run it will be minimized. Humans will gradually evolve across time, and I guess the conscience of future humans will work the greater to make values work in daily life. But it seems my concluding note is only wishful thinking, so I’d leave it up to you to form your opinions on the subject matter.
