The War on Drugs

Why I oppose extra the war on drugs.

Because the war on drugs resulted in the increase of extra judicial killings.

Because I believe that people can change and that we should give people the chance to change, and dead people do not get that chance.

Because even when tried and punished, innocent people are still killed because any human institution is not perfect, how much more when there are no trials. Will more injustice somehow lead to more justice?

Duterte proposes nationwide liquor ban: spokesman

I know that Duterte just won and this proposal may not even be implemented, but this is the kind of thinking why I did not vote for him, and maybe why a lot of people voted for him. 

His reason for the ban is

""The reason he has this liquor ban (in Davao) is because we have to work the next day, all the (restaurant) staff have to work, as well as the customers," he said."

So he thinks that without the ban, people will just drink until the wee hours of the morning, so they have to be protected from themselves.  But then:

"High-end Davao hotels are exempt from the liquor ban, he said."

So actually, the ban on drinking only applies to poor people,  if your rich, you can actually drink until the wee hours of the morning.  It's not that Duterte thinks drinking is bad, it's only bad if you're poor.

Bigot

Ira Panganiban had this to say on the Pacquiao controversy

“Guess what the definition of “Bigot” is? Here, let me tell you, “bigot – a person who has no tolerance for the belief and opinion of others and forces their own opinion on others,” he said.

“Now, who is the bigot? Who cannot take the opinion of others and forces their belief on him? Take a wild guess,” he added.

That is not the definition of bigot or bigotry, according to Merriam-Webster (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bigot) a bigot is someone who "strongly and unfairly dislikes other people, ideas, etc. : a bigoted person; especially : a person who hates or refuses to accept the members of a particular group (such as a racial or religious group)"

The difference between the actual definition of bigot and the one that Ira Panganiban espouses is the word, unfairly, other definitions replace unfairly with irrational. Because bigotry means you irrationally or unfairly hate the ideas, opinion, etc. etc.

So no, criticism of Pacquiao and his statement does not comprise bigotry, because it is rational to be intolerant of bigoted people who thinks his fellow men are worse than animals and should be put to death.
