Clamoring for a dictator


What has gotten into the younger generation of this country?

While the youth in North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and even in China and Burma are fighting against dictators and repressive regimes, Filipinos on Twitter are clamoring for a dictator.

With a younger generation like this, I think we are doomed to fulfill what George Santayana said: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

And I hope my kids would not be in this country when another dictatorship takes root.

Admit it, my last name's quite difficult to pronounce. It's read as kee-ling-ging.
