SABBATICAL NOTES. 5 JUL 2014. SATURDAY. N1.
ISOMORPHISM. The same logic of the schizophrenic Tagalog/Pilipino/Filipino=national language=nationalism=patriotism.
WHEN A HOMELAND, diverse as diverse can be, is defined this way, something is not right.
Even as we witness this charade of insisting the teaching of the schizophrenic national language in college when the teaching of this schizophrenic language takes so much of the time of students in K-12, and thus rendering the time allotted for this nonsense useless under the guise of nationalism defined naively in this picture, we must insist on language rights as inalienable rights of all peoples.
Academics who say otherwise have become the handmaiden of this deception, and this deception has been passed on as truth for the consumption of generations and generations of various peoples of the Philippines. [Source of the photo: Ramirez Joven,www.facebook.com/jovatiram, retrieved 5 Jul 2014]
