Abolish the University of the Philippines!
Note: This blog entry is from a commenter codenamed “Abolish the University of the Philippines” who commented on my controversial blog entitled To All UP Students: Education is NOT a Right! I found this comment very interesting so I’d like to give it a full-page exposure for my blog critics and visitors. The commenter’s email address is PinoyLiberal08@gmail.com.
ATTENTION! To my very passionate, emotional critics, please do not expose your idiocy. Argue properly. Raise your objections in a rational way. Don’t be so stupid. Don’t show your hippyish mentality. Your actuation, behavior is painfully hilarious and appalling.
The comments on this blog post have proven that the most dangerous threat to this country is the dominance of leftist professors
in the state universities, and I would even argue that they are successfully radicalizing political science students in top private universities today. Leftist politics and hysterical pseudo-moralizing are the cancer.
If UP’s main contribution to the Philippines is socialism then we should outright abolish it. No matter how good engineering graduates in UP are, the good is overwhelmingly surpassed by the damage that socialist ideas create. Smart engineers are worth squat if their services are not geared towards the needs of people, and the only way to know the needs of people is through the price mechanism, not some value-judgment by mentally senile politicians/parasites.
If that is the case, that UP contributes much more bad to the Philippines than it contributes good, then it should be totally abolished as well as all other tax-funded education.
And in reply to iska983929 who commented- “the reason why UP excels despite of it being run by the government as you said, is because of the teachers who sacrifice not getting high salaries for the students!- Pinoyliberal08@gmail.com further wrote:
There would still be no improvement even if corruption ceased starting tomorrow.
There is no such thing as profit and loss in the government. Bureaucrats don’t stand to gain profit if they do a good thing, and they don’t stand to acquire any losses if they do bad things. They actually get a higher budget the next year if they do bad this year. The worse public education gets, the more the masses will cry and ask for more spending, the more money the bureaucrats will get. But this is just a minor point, the main point is that government undermines the price system so it can NEVER know whether or not it is doing good or bad, to put more precisely, it can never satisfy demand the way business does. Even if the government were filled with angels, government would still create shortages and dismal quality of services. The problem with government is not intellectual, it is not psychological, it is not the character of government officials, the problem with government is economic CALCULATION.
Now, most of you said privatization of schools in the Philippines won’t work because of our ethnic culture or because we’re a third world country. This claim is never grounded in reality but just a puerile excuse or stupidity. The video below shows that the poorest of the poor in Africa are sending their children to private schools. Watch and learn!
And… is this the code of morality they teach you at school? ALTRUISM?
