Revolutions we have to continue.

Here is a list of revolutions we really have to continue.

1) Andres Bonifacio's unfinished one
2) Father Gregorio Aglipay's and Isabelo de Los Reyes' religious revolution
3) The Pinoy Scientific Revolution
4) The Sakdal Uprising
5) The Student Revolts of the 1970
6) The Martial Law Babies revolt that put Cory in power.

Perhaps the reader can add more. I think most Pinoys would agree to the first. The second may offend the Catholics but we have to continue the revolution initiated by Aglipay and de los Reyes not as against the Catholic religion per se but the establishment of religion. The Philippine State has not yet got over seeking the Church's support when things get dicey. The Church becomes corrupt in the process. We have to disestablish the Church whether this be the Catholic, Born Again, Iglesia ni Cristo, El Shaddai or any religion that imposes on the State and the individual's conscience.

Of course we need a scientific revolution of our own when Religion is placed in its own sphere of influence where it should do good.

The Sakdal and students revolt just tells us that we need a redistribution of wealth and opportunities in this country.

The Martial Law Babies' revolt reminds us of the need for drastic overhaul of Philippine society. Cory obviously failed to deliver.

No revolution is really a flop. It is a step in the right direction.
