WE are Living in America

Marvin Luna

 From the way the Filipinos dress to the way we live to the way the Philippine  Government administer and decide for the people,  I think that we are living in the governance of USA. In such way that we don’t actually benefited to what Americans benefits.

                     The VFA, the so called BALIKATAN military exercises in which the Filipino soldiers are trained, armed by the American counterparts. The succesful annihilation of some Abu Sayyaf leaders are also the product of American CIA. The Philippine Air Force’s  war machines  are product of American Generosity. The Philippine Navy’s multimillion watercraft is gift of love for us of son’s of Uncle Sam.

                 As Filipinos we can’t deny or say that we are all using the American products just because its the most affordable and readily available. Some how we are infected by the American ideologies and principles that are now erasing   our own identity and in the future , our own sovereignty.

                    I remember that one of the question/reaction thrown to me in the class  is       “so what?”.I think the question is just asked to me to have something that I can talk about. This  is my answer . Why don’t we tell the US government that since the things they are known about are being used in our country and their traditions, music, political ideas are readily accepted and practiced here and their authoritative hands are controlling our government to declare us as a part of their  UNITED STATES. Our problem in PESO/DOLLAR exchange will be solve and we will practically succeed in attainning our dreams THE AMERICAN DREAM.

MGA PRE MAGIGING FIL-AM NA TAYONG LAHAT,……

    Pax Americana as sponsored by conspiracy theorists, justify American hegemony as will. We are thinking like Americans we’re not just living it. Americans seduced us with their way of living and we gladly accept it.
