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 young minds as if its the solution. If you hate the government, the solution begins in mentality.

Instead of blaming the past, the red and yellow, the rich or the poor, 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 hundreds of memes that criticize nearly everything. Instead of faultfinding, consider how our capitalist Asian neighbors rose from ashes. They focused on skills, education, and hard work.

HARD WORK: Korea, Vietnam, and Singapore had far worse condition during the 1960s. They had dictators too. Even China has corruption, but they managed to pull their economy through hard work. It’s easy to blame Marcos in the 70s, the Aquinos after, Estrada, Arroyo, or Duterte at present. The blaming never stops.

2. “Talangka mentality”

Talangka” mentality remains in our culture. Filipinos can be so vindictive we judge leaders based on their weakness, even if they’ve accomplished something good. Constantly pulling leaders down is throwing garbage in your own backyard. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot.

→ Seductive idols of a Christian leader

3. “Nagmamagaling”

More students are turning to an ultra-left ideology rooted in atheism. 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.

Are you a millennial? One of Satan’s strategy is “victimhood,” he wants you to “hate” and believe that the victim is you. He uses “collectivism” and deceptive “Marxist ideology” to influence the mind. If you are a student, your first job is to obey your parents and study well. Doing so is being a responsible family member, and ultimately a good Filipino citizen. “Makinig sa magulang.”

Agnostic Ayn Rand is wrong about the existence of God, but she is right about victimhood.
