Philippines: Pork Barrel Protest Part 2: Problem Is Not Understood

In the previous blog, i found out in my investigation that inequality is behind the problems in society. 

I also looked at politician's starting point in funneling funds to their constituents as they're desiring to be re-elected, as this is what appeared in the news. Here's a copy, for perspective:

>Inequality/Poverty is a problem in society
>Government tries a temporary way to solve this problem and does not provide a permanent solution to the problem, so the problem persist.
> Politicians Fear not being re-elected so desires to help to be re-elected 
(fear of survival which fuels the desire for money and power to win)
> Politicians Desire to win the elections to get more money and power to survive in a competitive world
>the poor asks for help 
(fear of survival which fuels desire to survive through crime etc. to win)
>Politicians see there are funds in office for the poor
> Politicians sign documents to allocate funds to the Foundations who are not delivering what's promised
>The funds given to the foundations were not used to help the poor but was pocketed by the owners of the Foundation 
(fear of survival which fuels the desire to live life in luxury to win)
>The 'third whistleblower' was allegedly detained by the alleged mastermind
>The government agency responsible rescued the 'third whistleblower' from the condominium of the alleged mastermind
>The 'third whistleblower' gave some names of some politicians , her former employer, the alleged mastermind talks to
>Another whistleblower who worked with the alleged mastermind detailed how they get funds to fund the fake Foundations
>The government issues a warrant of arrest to the alleged mastermind
>The alleged scammer hides/flees
>Money is offered as a reward for the surrender of the person 
>The alleged mastermind said she fears for her life, so, surrenders to President Aquino
and is now in custody
>Government tries to solve problem of corruption
>Government provides a temporary solution but not a permanent solution to end the problem of poverty/inequality
>Inequality continues

In this blog, i am looking at the lifestyle of the poor and the rich and the pork barrel scam as part of the consequence of accepting and allowing inequality in society. 

Pork Barrel Protest Video:

Some of the protester's words in the video (at :22):

'Ayaw namin ng pork barrel. Ibigay sa Urban Poor. Magpatayo ng mga pabahay.'

Translated in English,

'We do not want pork barrel. Give to the Urban Poor. Build houses.'

We as the elite of this world who can afford a flushing toilet, forget that we are not the only ones here living in this world. There are others who does not have a flushing toilet.

In this pork barrel protest video posted above: 

We see the inequality that is existent in this world. The elite laughing and dancing with friends and the poor using the protest to ask for some money from the government (at :22):

We should not abuse the authority that was given to us by the people who vote for us. 

The real authority is the one that stands for what is best for everyone.

The government needs to make sure that every person -  in the whatever country one governs - survive and that no one starve to death because if we do not do this there will be consequence, as we can see daily in the news. We can see this clearly by looking at what is happening now in this world. 

The consequence of allowing a system of abuse on earth will be here and will affect our lives until we stop and pave the way for the poor and the unemployed to have access to the basic necessities they need to survive. The corporations who profit from the natural resources given to all by the earth can be nationalized and can share their profits to the poor in the form of a Basic/Living Income Guaranteed. This way there will be a lot of money in circulation and there will be demand for the products of the corporation and so the corporation can supply the products needed. This way everybody wins.

Is the pork barrel scandal a consequence of living in a world of inequality? 

Using commonsense, i say, yes.

We can see that the elite eats and parties, and have a choice in what food to eat and can have breakfast, lunch and dinner plus desserts with snacks or 'merienda' in between because they have money to pay for the food. 

They can also afford to gift their children luxurious  gifts like a porche (see the video link).


It is to realize that the best gift - is to give to all equally as the earth does.

I interviewed a taxi driver when i visited the Philippines in 2002 and he told me he is earning  3,000 pesos a month (equivalent to more or less $60 a month). He's got 3 kids and i asked him if it is enough money to feed his family. He told me that sometimes they do not eat 3x a day and that they try to live within their means.

We created the poor in our society.

We accepted and allowed an unequal world system where the elites like us have flushing toilets while the poor pass their stool in the middle of the forest. with no toilet papers using coconut husks to wipe their bums.

The earth has given its resources to all of us equally. 

We have to make sure the poor has money to buy the basic necessities they need to survive. 

We all live in this one life and whatever we do here in this physical existence, there is consequence.

"I commit myself to show, that Life as ‘lifestyle’ as origin as source as resource, is Given: Equally – to every Body of Life; and that dominion is to those that are able to distribute this which is Given Freely, Equally to All – that no-one may need or desire anything that will cause this separation that now exist as ‘lifestyle’ on Earth." Bernard Poolman

"I commit myself to Call on those claiming to be experts in Economics, to remove their Fears and prejudices, and to walk in Forgiveness for what they have allowed on Earth, and to rectify the situation so that All Life may be Equal at the table, prepared for Each One to have enough to Eat and Drink, and to have a Home and a lifestyle worth Living to such measure that that is the Inheritance they give to All Children that may ever be born on Earth for All Time – as that is the Foundation of Eternal Peace and Love on Earth." Bernard Poolman

"I commit myself to show that when the starting point is life equally respected in each other, the fundamental premise to give so that you may receive is immediately grasped to such an extent that irrational fear evaporates." Bernard Poolman

“I commit myself to restore the common sense trust in the physical reality that is the giver of life, to restore order in an irrational , illusory world of consciousness.” Bernard Poolman

“I commit myself to demonstrate the oneness interdependency between all parts of the physical realm that together form the body that is life through which we have been destroying the Earth, and our life will end and therefore we cannot continue to live as if we are separate of the real reality without permanent consequence.” Bernard Poolman
