Filipino College Students Design 'Anti-Cheating' Hats
"Wacky night. Or just beat up my air conditioner because I don't know. It just making sounds that it shouldn't make. I kept punching it and now it doesn't make those sounds. Many of you would call me caveman for doing that. But I did what I had to do. And me and Tutsi survive another night. Isn't that right, baby doll? Yes. She says so. Did you see this new thing where kids are now making things to place on their heads to dissuade them from cheating on an exam to stop them from looking at the person next to them's paper? Have you seen this? It's starting to Philippines. There's these anti cheating hats, and it's gone viral and it's inspired colleges to follow suit and, you know, do the same thing. So there's these students at one college in some city in the Philippines, were asked to wear bizarre apparel designed to prevent them peeking at their classmates papers. A lot of people responded by creating homemade contraptions out of cardboard, egg boxes, and other recycled bullshit, one person even made their own goggles using paper tubes. You've seen the picture, people pull on hats or helmets or Halloween masks. I mean, I don't understand this. The teacher behind this all is saying, insurers the integrity, it's a fun way to ensure the integrity and honesty in class. Listen, Americans don't copy what the kids in the Philippines are doing. Don't copy the Philippine kids, don't. Do you remember the days? When there was an exam and you were frightened to death because you didn't study enough, and you knew, oh my God, today is the day. I've got to get my answers right, and that person sometimes next to you if you're lucky. Slid their exam to the side of the desk where you could see it. Oh my God. I don't know where I'd be without Sue a Nino. Smiling while she slid her exam paper to her right, so I could clap clutch. So I could catch a glimpse of her multiple choice answers. Sue was a B plus a student all the way through. If it was an essay, I was lost. I always knew going into school if that was a test. Soon, you know, would slide her exam paper to the right, and I would be able to see

Charlie Asks the Question 'What Is a Citizen?'
"We've asked the question before what is a citizen? A citizen is different and distinctly separate than a surf, a subject, or a slave. A citizen means you are a co ruler of your nation. A citizen is somebody who is bought into the social contract, the fabric of the nation that they are in. We are called to be good citizens. In fact, being an active and alert citizen, I believe, is a moral prerogative, both biblically and also you could even make an argument just rooted in the natural law that being a citizen of your nation is a good thing, Jeremiah 29 7 says that demand the welfare of the nation that you are in because your welfare is tied to your nation's welfare. And we talk about citizenship, it's important to recognize and realize that there's limitations on citizenship. That not everyone gets to be a citizen just because they want to be a citizen. That citizenship, yes, you could be born into it, therefore you're tied to the prior social contract of your parents, or you must earn citizenship. Now when you decide to structure the fundamental elements of a society, it's fair to say that when you decide who should have political power, that citizens, the co rulers need to be the ones that decide who have political power. Now this might sound so unbelievably patently obvious that the people that are the ones in the society that are citizens, they and they alone are the ones that get to decide who's in power. For example, the French, the Saudis, the Iranians, the Chinese, or the Philippines, the Filipinos, they don't get to decide who's our president. They don't get to decide who your governor is. That only American citizens get to decide who's actually in charge of America.
Marcos Becomes President in the Philippines
"Ferdinand Marcus junior the namesake son of an ousted dictator has been sworn in as Philippine president Protesters hold placards that read never again to martial law and reject Marcus Duterte activists and survivors of the martial law era say the political comeback has been pulled off by whitewashing his family's image Marcus junior's rise to power comes 36 years after an army backed people power revolt booted his father from office but in his inaugural speech Marcus junior defended the legacy of his late father who he said accomplished many things that

"But first. Apple. Today marks another milestone in an astonishing turnaround for a famously political family. Back in May, Ferdinand Marcos junior, who's known as bong bong, handily won the Philippines presidential election. Marcus junior, the duly elected president of the republic of the Philippines. The profane tough guy incumbent Rodrigo Duterte has served out his one allowed 6 year term, having led a brutal crackdown on drug users. Today, his daughter Sarah became vice president and bong bong became president Marcos. Or rather, the next president Marcos. The last one was his father, defeated by a populist movement led by khorasan Aquino in 1986. What is it that has brought this nation to its knees? The answer is inescapably clear. Mister Margot. The Marcos regime had become notorious for its brutality for its corruption, and perhaps most of all, for its extravagance. Even those who knew little of Philippine politics knew that the president's wife imelda had a staggering number of posh shoes. When Marcos senior was deposed, ending up in exile, few would have guessed that there would be another Marcos leading the country. But a lot can change in 36 years. At noon today Ferdinand bongbong Marcos junior became president of the Philippines. Leo morani is The Economist Asia editor. The election was back in May on the 9th and mister Marcus attracted an enormous amount of support. He won 59% of the vote in a single drone election and his nearest rival only managed to muster 28% of the vote. That gives him the strongest electoral mandate of any president since his father Ferdinand Marcos, who, apart from winning elections, also imposed martial law and was a kleptocratic brutal dictator. So given his father's record, why do you think he was able to win this? And with such a clear majority. There are several reasons for that start with the sort of whitewashing of his father's reign. So for the past several years and especially in the run up to this election, the Marcus campaign has been running a social media campaign aimed at sort of rewriting history and painting his father's room as a golden era a time of prosperity and stability. Another reason is that the majority of the electorate is either too young to remember the dictatorship or had not been born yet. The third reason is that the Philippine schools curriculum does not much focus on the area of the dictatorship. So that's it, then it's just a matter of having us likely run social media campaign to smudge through history. That's a big part of it, but it's not all of it. An interesting thing is that DeMarcus legacy started to be reconsidered as early as a decade after the revolution. So by late 1995, which is less than ten years after he was deposed, people had already started changing their minds. I'll give you an example. In May 1986, which is a few months after the revolution, 41% of people surveyed by respected bolster thought that Ferdinand Marcos had been true to the duties of a patriotic president by October 95 that number had jumped to 57%. More striking yet in 86, 44% of people agreed that he was a severe brutal or oppressive president. And the same proportion disagreed. A decade later, just 38% agreed that he was a severe brutal or oppressive president and 60% disagreed. Confronted with these results, the polls tried to draw conclusions. They said, and I could. Not many of us would care to hold a grudge against someone long dead, not even someone like Ferdinand Marcos. But why do you think that was the case? That merely a decade later, people had begun to forget or at least not to mind. So the story goes back to 1991 when the Marcus family was allowed to return to the Philippines. In the dictator had died in an exile in 1989, the rest of the family was allowed to come back ostensibly to face charges of corruption. Instead, by 1992, imelda Marcos, that's Ferdinand's wife, had launched a presidential campaign. She lost in the end, but bong bong Marcus the son became congressman, and indeed for most of the next 30 years, he stayed in some position of the other, whether as a congressman or a governor or a senator. Other members of the family have been in various positions of power. So the process of rehabilitating the family name did not just start in the run up to this election and started ages needed to grow. It started 30 years ago. So now, at last, he's risen to the presidency. What do you think we can expect? The initial signs based on his appointments to the cabinet in nearly two months since he was elected. Fairly encouraging, actually. I mean, he seems so far, like he's shaping up to be a fairly middle of the road, standard president. His predecessor, Rodrigo Duterte, who's best known for his fall mouth and his drug wars, actually appointed a bunch of technocrats to run the economy. Appears to be doing the same. He's picked Benjamin jock no, who used to run the Central Bank to head his economic team, his defense chief as a former army general and chief of staff, his pick for transport used to be the base of the national airline. So those signs are fairly encouraging. And in fact, the business growth is delighted with the shape of the government so far. I should point out that his vice president is Sara Duterte, who is the daughter of the old queen president Rodrigo Duterte, and Rodrigo Duterte remains enormously popular. It's extremely popular as well. So there's a continuity here between these two administrations. And so no immediate reason to believe then that he has designs on grabbing the reins as firmly as his father did. Perhaps not grabbing the reins as firmly as his father did, but what is worrying is that there are already some signs of the space for criticism being constricted. That said, on June 23rd, the telecoms regulator clamped on the seal of big chunks of airtight by television and radio broadcasters. This is a fairly common practice in the Philippines. And those chunks are often used by political actors, so that's one example. Another is a prominent columnist whose no fan of bong bong was let go by her newspaper on the grounds that she sits on the board of rap load, which is a rabble rosing news website, but she sat on the board of rapper for ages and this was well known, including to her employers. A rapper for its part, on June 29th, again received an order from the country security and exchange commission to shut down for violating foreign ownership routes. So there are already worrying signs. And putting aside those concerns for the moment, what do you think it means for the Philippines today that mister Marcos should have become president? Much like France, the Philippines is on its 5th republic. This republic was founded after Marcus was deposed, and was founded in the basis of ideals of democracy and fairness and also to ensure that no markers like ever becomes president again. The very fact that Filipinos have chosen to elect the dictator's son suggests that the Philippines is entering a new era, there are others who argue that this new era started with the election of Rodrigo Duterte. So no matter which direction this presidency goes in, the one thing that is clear is that the era defined by the 1986 revolution has come to an end. Leo thanks very much for joining us. My pleasure, Jason. In 2014, Scotland held its first independence referendum, a triumph for the Scottish national party and its then leader Alex salmond. How are we going to vote? At the time, Nicola Sturgeon, who now leads the party, called it a once in a lifetime chance. We don't know that we'll ever get another opportunity to decide to become an independent country. It's the only guaranteed opportunity we will ever get. In the end, Scottish voters opted to stay in the union with the nays beating the yeas 55% to 45%. That might have put an end to.

"Is she is not from one of these dynastic political families that seem to control the Philippines year after year, her support is grassroots, she actually has policy recommendations. She is someone who's looking to break the cycle and reform the country that is kept many millions living in grinding poverty. She's currently behind, though, in the polls by about 30 points. So bang bang's leading, despite the fact that he comes from a political family with a really bad track record, how's he doing that? Marcus senior wasn't as unpopular as his record suggests, despite doing these horrific things, he still has a positive legacy among millions of Filipinos. There is a tendency here to support strongmen and that has something to do with the institutions being weak here with the insecurity that people live in when it comes to safety when it comes to just putting food on the table. And so Marcus is revered by many working class Filipinos and it's the educated Filipinos, the upper class Filipinos, the left leaning Filipinos who suffered at his hands that have a terrible memory. Now, the other thing that has helped Marcus is that they've successfully whitewashed their history. This is an extremely young country. There are millions and millions of Filipinos did not live through those martial law years. Over 60 million registered voters in the Philippines have no real memory of that time and so the Marcus family spent years rebranding their image. First in legacy media and then through Facebook and YouTube and then now their newest tool is TikTok. TikTok, TikTok. We'll be.

"Around is this oil find. When ExxonMobil first struck oil off the coast of Guyana a few years ago, as they say in the industry, they hit a gusher. To date, they found over 10 billion barrels of recoverable reserves in guyanese waters. To put that into context, by the end of the decade, there will be producing more than a million barrels of oil per day. For Exxon alone, one in ten barrels of oil that they produce every day in 2030, they reckon they'll be coming from guyanese seas. To do that, within 12 years of your discovery is unprecedented. That was Alistair routledge, who is the president of ExxonMobil and Guyana. What he told me was that the speed at which this oil producer found oil and got production going, it's been pretty staggering. Even to go from the first discovery to first production and then less than 5 was absolutely outstanding. There was some risk taken to get there, but the government of the day were really keen to see early revenues to show that they could develop the economy. For the ordinary guyanese person, they have been hearing about this oil fine for quite a while now and a lot of them are looking around and saying, hey look, what has the impact been on the economy? So in some ways, especially when you're in the capital when you're in Georgetown, you feel like oil has boosted this economy. Some local workers, particularly in the capital, they're making a lot more money than before just driving taxis, working as waiters in the hotels, working on building sites to build fancy new apartments and villas for the expat workers showing up in Guyana. When I look at my employees back three years ago, a lot of them were wearing hand me down clothes. That's Sean hill who manages Guyana shore base, which is the logistics hub, the port that serves the offshore oil industry. And he taught me through how oil has brought prosperity to some people in the local economy. Like hot pot was empty. Now it is full of life trials that complaining because it's on a car parking space. You motorbikes outside, people turning up in brand new clothes to work every single day. So you can visibly see that what we're doing here is impacting their lives. On a macro scale, the data shows that this is happening. So the economy grew 20% last year. It grew 44% in 2020. Guyana was the fastest growing economy in the world during the pandemic. What you have is a government that is promising to channel all of these Petro dollars into development. They're saying they're going to use this money to build infrastructure roads, schools, hospitals, and you have quite a bit of excitement over there. Of course, there's a number of things that could go wrong. The guy in his people don't have to look far to see how oil can be a curse for an economy. To the west, they've got Venezuela. Their oil is bankrolled a corrupt socialist dictatorship. They've got Trinidad, nearby, where all exploration was great for a while, but it's also sort of led to crime and social unrest. So really, the big concern is, hey, are we going to have one big oil industry and the rest of the economy is going to be drained of resources, drained of qualified staff? Are we going to have this resource curse? Or are we going to be able to diversify? We consider it to be of the highest importance to ensure that we diversify the economy. Ashley Singh, Guyana's finance minister, who I also interviewed there, he talked a lot about economic diversification. I think we have the good fortune in that we do have a basis for real economic diversification. There is a very significant set of opportunities in gold production. We have the potential terrible two or three companies looking at developing large scale gold mines. That will be significant. Now you're right, mean oil is still going to be larger than even gold. But they will not be insignificant. Whatever mister Singh says, the data isn't that hopeful. By the government's own estimates, the guyanese economy as a whole will expand almost 50% this year. But if you take out oil, it's going to grow by less than 8%. Offshore oil is an incredibly specialized industry. So you only need a few maintenance staff, most of the work is done by machines. You're not going to be sourcing from local guyanese businesses because frankly there's only a handful of companies around the world that produce pipes and widgets that are up to scratch. One really big risk that could see this whole oil boom turns sour is corruption. Guyana is a country with massive ethnic divisions between groups of African and Indian descent. Their politics is very cleanly divided between those two groups. The last election a couple of years ago turned pretty ugly in part because these oil riches were up for grabs. Cronyism is rife. A local businessman will all say it's not possible to win a big deal or a big job in the oil industry unless you've got pals and high places. Outside of Georgetown and inside of Georgetown, it feels like a whole different world. When I left the capital and I went over to the agricultural land in the pomeron, I went to a big coconut plantation you can see people there who were really skeptical about how the oil boom was ever going to benefit them. The name is Gary Goodman. I'm 55 years old and I've actually 49 years now. When you're in Georgetown, everyone says to me, oh, these big hotels coming. Here's this guy. He's got a contract for oil. I'm not excited about the vehicles. I'm not excited about the big roadways. I'm not excited because the person to spend him on either hotel is only a certain class that people could go there. They might not walk into the government can go dear. The private sector, some could go some can't. What is the big excitement about it? The truth is, it's a pretty funny time to become a Petro state. On one hand, the invasion of Ukraine, the war does mean that energy prices have had an incredible boom of late, but in the slightly more medium to long term, we're in a world where everyone is trying to cut down their usage of fossil fuels. As one analyst said to me, in the Guyana, the oil revenues are going to come fast. They're going to come hard and they're not going to come long. So it's not going to take very long for us to find out whether.

And he said to me, Kurt, this stuff about the rapes of Ukrainians by Russian troops. Do you believe in? And I said, I absolutely believe it. We not only have the history after World War II, but we don't have a non commission officer corps on the ground to manage these guys. The one of the most important things that frontline leaders do with soldiers, it's young men hyped up on adrenaline with guns, you've got to control them and direct their violence in a reasonable and useful manner. Isn't that correct? It's a 100% true. I mean, you tell them, okay, first, we're going to go out and we're going to start killing people. But there's a whole bunch, a bunch of rules about this. You can't just do it indiscriminately. And it's amazing. I taught a lot of classes over the years and a number of countries about the laws of land warfare. And you got a lot of links. A lot of people going, wait, what? Okay, my favorite one, the Philippines. We're teaching a bunch of Philippine scout rangers and I'm telling them how to talk to them. When you're going to look for insurgents in a village, how do you make sure you go in and do it? What do you do? They said, well, we citing the machine guns here and we form an L shape. They had a good infantry plan, and they said, and then we just shoot the machine guns through all the buildings, go and count the bodies and issue a press release. We killed 22 insurgents. And I'm like, yeah. That's the technique. Okay, that seems seems a little broad. Maybe we can narrow and focus. Well, I had to convince them that, hey, maybe you keep one alive to interrogate. And they're like, yeah, we could use we could do that. Car battery and hook it up to his. And this isn't what I had in mind at all. It was a challenge, but that mentality does not exist across most militaries in the world. And so both the Russians and Ukrainians have committed a number of war crimes that are documented on
Tim Tebow Shares His Miraculous Story
"I heard you speak to him recently. I mean, I've met you a number of times and I know your story. But recently I was at the march for life in D.C., and the night before there was an event. And you were the speaker because they couldn't afford me. So they had to go down a tear. And you were the speaker. And I've never heard you do your thing before. And you're famous for all kinds of things for being a sophomore winning the Heisman Trophy and for athletics, but it really was wonderful to hear you speak. But I thought to myself, before we get into the subject of your book, I know there are folks in my audience that do not know your story. So could you tell us the nutshell version of how you came into this world? Yeah, absolutely. So my dad in 1986 was getting ready to preach in a remote village in the Philippines and just started to a week for all the babies that were being aborted around the world. And he asked Scott, he already had four kids and asked Scott if you would give them another kid and started actually praying for me by name for a boy named Timothy and went back home and told my mom, hey, gotta put it on my heart to have tried to have another child and she was like, well, it got inputted on my heart and she started praying about it and then a few days later she felt convicted and so they started trying not long after my mom was pregnant and actually at first they didn't even think I was the baby that thought it was a tumor and so truly my first nickname was Timmy the tumor. So I had that going for me. Is that your siblings? They crushed me. But it's a tough one. Yeah, but then. You know, they found out what's the baby, the doctors told my parents, you need to have an abortion or will cost you your life and your baby's life and my mom said, you know, we're going to trust God. Let me just so people are clear. This is in the mid 80s. Your parents are missionaries in the Philippines. They have four kids and you said, God put it on your father's heart. You know, because a lot of people don't believe God speaks today. God put it on your father's heart in prayer. That they were to have another kid, and he felt that this is going to be a boy, and he's going to be named Timothy. So God impresses this on your father. And your mother gets pregnant. What happened during the pregnancy? Because you shared this when I heard you speak in D.C. the other day. But what happened that made the doctors in the Philippines say that she absolutely must abort this child? Well, there were so many different kinds of. Me not being able to get nutrients of the placenta not being attached and they didn't even know actually how bad it was until she was giving birth, but there were so many other amoeba dysentery and so many other things that were going on with my mom and me and the womb at the time. And a lot of complications, but actually a doctor had been doing it for 35 years when my mom gave birth, he said to my mom, this is the greatest miracle I've ever seen because I have no idea how your baby survived. I don't understand it, and your baby is a miracle. And you know, I think, you know, I still get so emotional when I think about it to this day because the only reason I'm here is because my mom gave me a

"By December 10th, the Japanese landed 400 troops at Dunkin speech and quickly defeated the insular force guard before advancing on the marine barracks and pity. By 6 a.m., governor McMillan had officially surrendered. In total, there were 17 killed 35 wounded and 406 military and civilian personnel captured. Interesting fact, the Japanese had inaccurate reconnaissance information and overestimated the U.S. forces, so they attacked with a much larger force than was necessary. Another interesting fact is that there were 6 American military personnel who escaped capture and tried to cause havoc. Three were found and executed by September 1942, two additional by October 1942, but one of them, U.S. Navy radioman first class George tweed, was able to escape capture and was rescued by a U.S. Navy ship in July 1944. Just ten days before the U.S. landed in Guam. To hear more about the treatment of the chamorros during the occupation and the impact of the Saipan chamorro's in support of the Japanese, we really recommend going back to episode 7. Before we shift to the attack on the Philippines, one last interesting fact, people of Japanese descent on Guam and the CNMI faced a lot of discrimination after World War II, often changing their names to hide their Japanese heritage. That change with the impact of tourism, tourists from Japan are one of the largest sources of income in Guam now. The Philippines were another territory that was acquired after the Spanish-American War. We're planning a much more detailed episode on the full history. But here's the synopsis, it's your classic story of plucky resistance fighters battling their colonial rulers, the Spanish, and getting help from a foreign country, the United States of America. Only to be double cross in the end and have the new foreign country still United States of America become the new colonial rulers. The U.S. established a few military bases as part of their presence in the far east. As you can imagine, the people of the Philippines didn't appreciate being anyone's colony. So there were several decades of increasing political unrest. The ongoing trouble was enough to convince the U.S. to sign the Philippine independence act in 1934, AKA the tidings mcduffie act. This established a ten year transition of power in the Philippines to full independence and included the creation of a constitution and election of a government..

"The closest inhabited island is Utrecht atoll in the Marshall Islands at a little under 600 miles to the southeast. The U.S. took possession of wake island in 1899, which coincided with the U.S. colonial expansion that included the annexation of Hawaii and the acquisition of Guam and the Philippines after the Spanish-American War in 1898. Wake island is about halfway between Honolulu and Manila. So it made sense as a location for refueling ships and creating an airstrip for planes. Fun fact, Pan American airways also known as Pan Am, chose wake island as a stopping point for the trans Pacific flights between the U.S. and China. So after getting the U.S. Navy's permission, they constructed the flying clippers base on wake island in May 1935. The U.S. Navy began construction of a military base there in January 1941, and on August 19th, 1941, the first permanent military garrison was stationed on wake island. They were made up of the first marine defense battalion and were under the command of major PS devereaux. In total, there were about 449 officers and enlisted personnel. There were also 68 other U.S. naval personnel and over 1200 civilian workers. Most of the civilians were construction workers employed by Morrison knudsen, a civil engineering company. There were also about 45 chamorro men employed by Pan Am at their company's facilities on wake island. A few hours after hearing about the Attack on Pearl Harbor, 36 Japanese Mitsubishi bombers flew from their bases on the Marshall Islands and attacked wake island on December 8th. The goal was to establish air dominance so the Imperial Japanese bombers destroyed 8 of the 12 planes at the airfield. Fun fact, these were F four F three wildcats. The Japanese also sank the nisqually a converted scow that was in the bay. If you're wondering where the other four U.S. wildcats were, they were in the air on patrol, trying to find the Japanese, but due to poor visibility didn't see the Japanese bombers. After the attack, the panem employees were evacuated as well as any passengers who happened to be there. The chamorro workers weren't allowed to board the plane to escape, so they were left behind. The Japanese followed up the initial bombing with an attempt to land and take over wake on December 11th. The four wildcats, U.S. Marines, and any civilian volunteers who were willing to fight, were able to mount a defense under major devereaux command, and they repelled this first attempt in all the Japanese lost two destroyers and had 407 casualties in this first attempt. There were frequent Japanese air raids and no additional troop deployments or supplies. So the second invasion force was more effective for the Japanese on December 23rd..

Some areas have them but not all areas. Have them so. It's a bit of a mixed bag which is unsurprising. it's more nuanced than the one statement you generally raid would lead you think shock horror. Yeah so got argues that. The general image of the philippines as a tolerant country accepting of people has actually made things more difficult for quit in the philippines particularly when they look more complex or less kinda public issues. So i think like employment discrimination versus things like same sex marriage. It's much harder to fight for laws against employment discrimination. Went everyone around.

You have the secret language. You're nothing to use it as secretly. Yeah and then other people are gonna find out about it because you know people loved Rodman and out group like it's just kind of the reverse of why you came up with this language in the first place. Yeah yeah you're right like people do want to be an ingram side. Obviously gonna start learning when they hear it used and then it lose its original purpose and like we say the same thing. We'll do an episode on this one. But we do the same thing in england with polara where the sacred gate language and then became used by hunting event names to very famous radio in china's and then basically Use this anymore. it's on the radio. Now it's useless to us. Yeah whereas in the philippines Dying out because no longer subsets. Original purpose is just basically become a part of a lot of mainstream philippine slang cool. Yeah that's interesting yeah. I wonder to what extent like i feel. Like if i was equip us any one of these countries and yeah. I started hearing that language on the radio. I would have that reaction. But i wanted to. What extent actions like correct right because like if you're using it secretly to protect yourself from quebec people i didn't create capable type.

You know hanging out on a beat to try and pick you up then rescue. There's cops probably studied power if they have the cia. It's much more strategic than yep i. Let's talk about attitudes to quiz in the philippines before i start making a poorly educated comments about kalari. I read our variety of surveys about attitudes towards in cleveland the philippines to try and get a feeling if this claim that the philippines is a really queer. Friendly country is true Because some people are saying the philippines is absolutely queer friendly anyone can be created. It's fine and then there are bunch of this isn't really true. This isn't what the situation actually is in daily life for acquitted person so i tried to find some statistics. The statistics were somewhat contradictory. But i'll tell you. I didn't have time to look into the details of for example. Who did all the surveys. What exactly the questions. They asked who are in everything But for example one hundred fifteen study found that eighty five percent of filipinos disagreed with the statement. That same sex marriage should be recognized but then twenty seventeen poll found that sixty three percent of people believe same sex attractive. Paypal's enjoy the same rights but straight people and that same twenty seventeen poll found that seventy two percent of people believe trans people should enjoy the same rights that six people so that twenty seventeen paul teams quite positive. The twenty fifth pole nelson the twenty fifteen. Paul not so much on the is a two years apart. But i think that's representative all value change over time. There are bumps trauma statistics from around the same time. That kind of went away as well. Yeah i guess there is a bit of a difference there like obviously the difference there in freising. Yeah this is about a specific legal change. he added one of this about like sort of generally. Do you think gay people should have rights. I think that definitely is a factor that one question is a really concrete thing in once quite abstract. So i want also that i read quite a lot of. He's written a lot about philippine quick culture. Nael garcia described the philippines as being a tolerant country queer people and explains that he meant the tolerate quip people accept them and he gave the example of the fact that a family might be tolerant of having a queer acquaintance and united habitat them over to dinner or whatever but if one of the children came out that would be a completely different matter and they would not accept that and i think that kinda is the same thing when it's a kind of abstract concept this person where you don't really have to interact with queen cycles. People might be fine with that but when it's in your own life and something concrete people uncomfortable with another statement. That often comes up when talking about how the philippines on unaccept- in country is that there aren't nar laws against homosexuality in the philippines.
