About Online Inspirational Messages & Some Sleazy Viciousness

Untitled

Social media posts like these actually share similarities with most (international) development campaigns: they flatten and oversimplify what was supposed to be an intricate concept. Instead of at least eliminating a portion of the problem, this approach aggravate the matter by unknowingly tossing more messes and becoming a vehicle of social exclusion.

Another example that executes this method can be found in fully funded trips wherein the selection of participants lies entirely in the number of Facebook likes. Then, they would launch this campaign that aims to eradicate poverty through fun run, or conserve water by skipping your daily baths. This proper way of misallocating the reserves is actually — disappointingly enough — the dominant practice of the uncritical youths and uncritical organizations of the century.

Sa mga karirista at pabebeng kabataan, pasintabi kay Jose Rizal.
