The “Indolence” or laziness of those peoples under colonial domination, or those perceived to be racially or intellectually inferior, is not a new lie. It is an old one, perhaps centuries old.

What has contributed to filipjno ‘indolence’ is instead corrupt government, an overbearing church, lack of education, political abuse, and gradual destruction of original economy and customs, crime, segregation, indoctrination of feeling inferior, and lack of a cohesive nationality. In order to combat this, these institutions, both political and social, should be removed, and new more indolencr ones constructed in their place, which allow for something like real self-determination, and education, so as to grow and stabilize the country.
This, of course, is only a beginning.
Incredibly smart for something written in May 21, April rated it it was amazing Shelves: I just wanted to keep putting up snaps every other paragraph.

She indo,ence appalled when I told her about libraries that loan books out to residents for free in America. Since then, she’s dreamed about one day opening up her own library and cafe in the Philippines to somehow encourage our kababayan to read more and empower themselves.
What can I do to contribute to this dream as a Filipino-American outside of the Philippines?
The Indolence of the Filipino
All in all, a thought-provoking, inspiring, and quick! Sep 07, William Baker rated it it was amazing. This is could be read as an epilogue to The Social Cancer.
In his view the Spanish colonization of the Philippine Islands was a total disaster for the indigenous populace, and all its alleged benefits were either fake or meager. To my impression the bitter conclusions and resentment of Rizal toward those more than years have either barely reached the present consciousness hose Filipinos, or when it did, they let the bygones be bygones.

Jose Rizal was a philosopher hero of the Philippines who was executed by the Spanish army for his trouble. I found his arguments that explain the perceived indolence of Filipino.
He explained that any group learns to live. He explained that o it is very hot and very fertile. As a result, the Filipino did not work sunrise to sun set, but produced the food needed to keep the culture alive.

Other outside groups like the Spanish, Chinese, and others decided that if they worked longer and harder they could produce more, which they did. So, native Filipino riches were stolen to the profit of those who subjugated the native. The natives lost any real interest in being slaves, and reduced their efforts.
Fortunately notice tongue deeply in cheek here the Catholic church taught the natives their slavery is OK, because god will give them something better after they are dead. I read this book because I was making a short visit to Manila. I stayed at a hotel right next door to the oldest cathedral in the Philippines. I noticed that the church seemed to be a gathering place for the poor to sleep on mats and beg at the church doors.
It seems the Catholic church is still promising the same thing, but at least from my small very unscientific observation, are doing little to deliver. Jul 19, DC rated it really liked it Shelves: This book thf something we discussed in our Rizal class.
Reading through it, I couldn’t help but feel a kind of admiration for Rizal, who was able to lay bare the, simply put, indolence of the Filipino. The reasons for it may be looked at as mere excuses, but the train of thought is still something exciting and indoldnce.

I suppose the only thing that is perceived bothersome is that Rizal seems to still convey a subtle message on wanting the Islas Filipinas to be a province of Spain, as one may see in the last sentence of the book: This policy has the advantage in that while it may not lull the instincts of liberty wholly to sleep, yet the day when the mother country loses her colonies she will at least have the gold amassed and not the regret of having reared ungrateful children.
The PDI’s article about it should summarize it quite well. All in all, a good read for the indios, even at present. Jan 27, Steven rated it it was amazing.
