I was about to give my body some well deserved snooze when I decided to check my email. I shouldn’t have. I should’ve lay down my bed and basked into a deep satisfying slumber. But I didn’t. now I am typing like a maniac, fuming mad. It’s all because of this controversy-hungry, infantile dimwit.

THIS time Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez has picked
on the University of the Philippines school system,
saying it mainly produces militant protesters and
fraternity men and women who run around the campus
naked.

“That school breeds the destabilizers that haunt the
country year after year. They are acting as if they
are the only ones who know how to run the country,”
Gonzalez told the Inquirer yesterday.

He said this was not the way the students should repay
the government for giving them a world-class
education.

“They should consider the fact that the state is the
one paying for their schooling. Why fight the state?
Why try to bring it down. I think some degree of
gratitude should be there also,” he said.

He noted that UP had always been known as a “cradle of
leadership” but he was worried that with the way some
students there were acting, some serious questions
would be raised about the “kind of leaders we will
have in the future.”

i’m not a hardcore activist. i can’t claim that i have a stand on every issue of national consequence. i don’t go to rallies and scream my lungs out to make my point come across. Hell, it may have been weeks since I last read a newspaper. But when an obtuse old man disparages my most venerated institution then he should get the most expletive expletives i could ever utter.

seems like old man here haven’t heard of the latent purpose of activism. well, i am not surprised, he didn’t graduate from UP afterall. Another thing, we are not a bunch of exhibitionists. The oblation run is a highly thought of tradition which traces its roots from the dissent of the Marcos regime. But of course, there is no way you would understand.

If this guy is in sound mental condition, he would think twice before bashing the most opinionated studentry in the country. now you’re in deep shit man, real deep shit. well, you asked for it.
