The meaning of ‘the common good’

Being Right By Jemy Gatdula This is a topic I’ve written about previously but feel it bears revisiting. The term “common good” is quite fashionable nowadays. From the environment to education reform, common good has been uttered to add credibility to whatever measure is being proposed. Unfortunately, there is a need to clarify what is really meant by the term “common good.” To start, let us discuss another oft-used phrase: Salus populi est supreme lex, which many people understand as “the will of the people is the supreme law.” Which is not really the case. The closer translation goes like…

Either pregnant with child or pregnant with hubris

Peculiar problems arise when government thinks itself all knowing and prescient. Call it Murphy’s Law or the law of unintended consequences. Either way, Greek mythology is full of people laid low by hubris. As Prometheus was wont to say: “those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.” I write this because the House of Representatives recently seem to have acquired a mania for pushing legislation that are quite detached from reality. As well as insisting in measures repeatedly tried in the past and, repeatedly as well, proven wrong. So, Albert Einstein: “insanity is doing the same thing…

Canada reports nearly 2,000 assisted suicide deaths in first year of legalization

October 10, 2017 (Euthanasia Prevention Coalition) — The data from Health Canada’s second Interim Report on assisted dying states that there were 1982 reported assisted deaths (1,977 reported euthanasia deaths and five reported assisted-suicide deaths) in the first year (June 17, 2016-June 30, 2017) since legalization. There were 167 reported euthanasia deaths in Québec prior to the federal government legalizing assisted death, therefore as of June 30 there have been (1,982 + 167) 2,149 reported assisted deaths in Canada. Canadian governments have established a self-reporting system, meaning the doctor who carries out the death is the same doctor who reports the death…

Being Right

Various groups rally at the Mendiola bridge in commemoration of the International Human Rights Day on December 10, 2016. — KJ ROSALES/PHILIPPINE STAR The problem with the Commission on Human Rights is that it was created out of a Kumbaya moment: people all very giddy after the 1986 mob uprising, with the flattering international attention it wrought. Yet, to paraphrase the saying: one politics in poetry but governs in prose. And in this case, the realities of governance finally came to a head as far as the CHR is concerned. To be frank, the CHR got away with its shtick…

STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY OF THE PRO-LIFE CAUCUS WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND OTHER SECTORS AGAINST THE CONTINUING EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLINGS AND THE DEATH OF THE INNOCENT VICTIMS

STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY OF THE PRO-LIFE CAUCUS WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND OTHER SECTORS AGAINST THE CONTINUING EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLINGS AND THE DEATH OF THE INNOCENT VICTIMS Since the start of the Duterte administration and its war on drugs, the layered messages of this government have encouraged the killing of anyone who may be suspected to be involved in drugs.  Filipinos are dying every day, and the President seems to be unmoved by the numbers, and seems to be happy that people are dying by the minute in every part of the country, all because of his vigilante style of dealing…

How the LGBT Movement Used Fake Science to Push Gay Marriage

In his book “32 Yolks,” Eric Ripert, head chef and owner of Michelin three-starred Le Bernardin in New York City, tells the story of his parents’ divorce when he was 5 years old: I went from being a happy kid to a kind of pint-sized depressive. From the time I was 5 until I went away to cooking school and for many years after, I was rarely truly happy—just different degrees of sad. Ripert says that from the moment his parents split up, when he was with his mother, he missed his father; when he was with his father, he…

The good president

Atty. Jemy I. Gatdula Member Board of Trustees, Pro-life Philippines “The contest is not between us and them, but between good and evil, and if those who would fight evil adopt the ways of evil, evil wins.” — Thomas Jefferson My current pet joke comes from Peter Sellers, recalling a musician friend of his being pestered for a song request by some fellow. The title being insisted was “That’s what you are.” Unfortunately, Seller’s friend couldn’t recall any tune by that name and said so. The man was badly indignant: how can anyone not know that popular song? So Sellers’…

Transgender policy: he or she as they want

  At a government forum, a woman speaker began her presentation by laying a ground rule: she was to be referred to as “he,” “sir,” and a “man.” None in the audience objected to this ridiculous act of bullying. Bullying, as it was obviously forcing others to agree lest incur the punishment of being called a bigot or intolerant. Ridiculous, because the entire exercise simply goes against reality. To rely on biology, science, or fact is not bigotry. But to compel people to disregard reason is extremism no different from religious zealotry. Nature designates, from conception, people to be either…

The Victims of the Davao Death Squad: Consolidated Report 1998-2015

death

Impact Editorial Cartoon By Fr. Amado Picardal, CSsR I RECENTLY received a consolidated report of the killings perpetrated by the Davao Death Squad (DDS) since 1998 up to the end of 2015.  The source will not be mentioned for obvious reasons. Suffice it to say that since the killings started, they have been monitoring these cases. I know them very well and I have been collaborating with them as we denounced these killings and worked with the Commission of Human Rights and the Human Rights Watch. They are hesitant to make the report public out of apprehension that it will…
