Has liberty and freedom gone too far? (For Pinoys!)

Posted: 19/05/2009 in Opinionz

Okay pipol of the Philippines listen up!

Kaninang umaga maganda ang gising ko dahil kay ate Ella at sa dami ng view ng blog ko.

But things changed ngayong gabi nang nalaman ko na may nang-insulto na naman sating mga pinoy.

Si Aleck Baldwin isang batikang actor ng hit comedy series na The Office has practicaly made a joke that shocked today’s pinays in his interview with David Laterman (Late show with David Laterman). According to informants may pagka girl hater daw si Aleck at iniwan ng asawa still for me hindi ko mapapalampas yun kasi mga Pilipina na ang pinag-uusapan ang most of my relatives are pinay that I grew up and look up to them.

Let’s recap shall we: According to http://www.wikipedia.org

Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to denote not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. Freedom of speech and freedom of expression are closely related to, yet distinct from, the concept of freedom of thought. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on “hate speech“.

The right to freedom of speech is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as “the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression”.[1][2] Furthermore freedom of speech is recognized in European, inter-American and African regional human rights law.

Pero kung titingnan po natin most of us abused this freedom, na we became tactful to our choice of words. Most of todays people will state whatever they want just because they are free to do so. Most people are now likely to “Express” what they feel whenever and wherever they want it without ever thinking that thy might hurt somebody or kung anu yung impact sa tao. Ang mga teenagers ngayon they make statement that are not appropriate to their age, they think their old enough to do whatever they please but they cant. We Filipinos are disciplined people siguro na rin sa old ways ng parents natin where they are conservative and magalang. Pero bakit ngayon madaming naninira satin? (siguro inggit) Si Aleck Baldwin, Chip Chow at iba pang foreign people they think they are better than us, thet they mock us and say whatever they want to say. Whatever happend to limitations of what you say? Is freedom really gone too far?
