Victimhood Mentality: Your enemy is within
Life continues to be difficult for many. Government dissatisfaction endures, regardless of who sits in Malacañang. Meantime, ‘leftists communist groups’ recruit students because life seems to be full of tragedies. However, the real tragedy is when we continue to blame the past and present woes, the red and yellow, the rich and poor.
If you hate the government, the solution begins in mentality, not with more disgust. Instead of blaming others, assume responsibility and get rid of useless Filipino ideologies that enslave us.
1. “Puro sat-sat, kulang sa gawa“
It’s easy to blame others but not be part of the solution. Just look at the hundreds of memes and posts that criticize nearly everything, good or bad. Instead of incessant criticism, consider how our capitalist Asian neighbors rose from ashes. They focused on skills, education, and hard work.
→ The real political threat of the Philippines.
2. “Talangka mentality”
The “talangka” mentality remains in our culture. Filipinos can be so vindictive we judge leaders based on their mistakes, even if they’ve accomplished something good. Constantly pulling leaders down is killing your own country, don’t shoot yourself in the foot.
Don’t shoot yourself in the foot
→ Seductive idols of a Christian leader
More students are turning to an ultra-left ideology rooted in atheism. With little knowledge, they think they know better. We must learn from past mistakes but we must fix our eyes on the future collectively. Our leaders may fail us, but God placed them for a reason. (Daniel 2:21)
Satan wouldn’t want a government God instituted to be victorious. If our leaders fail, our society falters. If you believe God is in control, pray for your leaders.

→ What you need to know about equality and diversity.
