The children will pay for their parents' sins


Ferdinand Edralin Marcos declared Martial Law in the Philippines on September 21, 1972, not only the concussions still remain on the generation that lived it, but their children also suffered -- UNTIL NOW.

its kinda weird, because behaviors are passed through the bloodlines.

so they suffer a fate of being "cursed" if you will with their parents or grandparents sins, unless they attone for them.
its not a religious thing either thats what makes it wilder.

Yes... very good gaijinkokujin. But technically it's not a curse nor blood - it's the DNA. Something about messed up chromosomes that is spread through each generation - like if a father was a serial killer, the son might be too.

Actually, that's not what I'm talking about.

What I meant by

QUOTE

is that future generations will get the blame for the acts of generations before them.

Actually, that's just the beginning.

As I pointed out somewhere within the Chinese chat, future Japanese generations will get the blame for the atrocities of the past generations.

Also, other irony:

The Jews that were Holocaust members are Europeans (read: German).

In 1776, Britain invaded America to try to shut them up about their independence beliefs.

Now America is taking Britain's role and attacking countries b/c they have different beliefs (Iraq).

Only if the mutation is in the gene pool. Otherwise it wouldn't matter.

The father/son case of serial killers is likely, but is caused by psychological factors rather than genetics.

Both Japan and the Philippines are OUTSIDE the mainland of Asia.

I'll go straight to the point:

Yet, PEOPLE KEEP ON SAYING THAT FILIPINOS ARE PACIFIC ISLANDERS! madgo.gif madgo.gif

Even though Philippines is a part of Asia, THEY STILL KEEP ON SAYING THAT IT'S A PACIFIC ISLAND NATION! madgo.gif madgo.gif

i might be a tad confused 'bout yer point on this post. do u mean to say dat there is somethin' offensive 'bout bein' labeled a pacific islander despite the fact dat the philippines & japan r literally islands in da pacific?

or do u mean to say somethin' along da lines dat it's bull fer ppl to separate japanese n filipinos from da rest of asia just b/c dey live on an island?

or could it be dat u object to da use of some blanket term to cover all nationalities outside of mainland asia - as opposed to simply callin' the japanese "japanese" & the filipinos "filipinos"?

No. What I intend to mean was that even though both Japan and the Philippines are outside the mainland, I haven't heard a person call a Japanese a Pacific Islander while people KEEP ON DELIBERATELY CALLING FILIPINOS PACIFIC ISLANDERS! madgo.gif madgo.gif

That's just blatant hypocrisy, isn't it?

You can't use that in the same context. America got the idea of independence because the britain was taxing them too much. It was about freedom.

Who is the "they" in your question. If you are referring the Iraqi people they were happy that Suddam is gone same beliefs they wanted Suddam to go.

No, but it works as in not what they believe, but that they do believe. He's saying that the Britians attacked us because our beliefs were different then theirs. We wanted freedom, they didn't like it. Now the US is attacking other countries because they don't side with us.

Are you saying they as the "people" or they as the "government". because in the the countries(only two) that America has attack their government was oppessive to the people.
