How does it feel like to be a 21st century global pariah? Here:

“…it would take the Philippines between 132 years and 241 years — depending on the indicator being measured — to catch up with the living standards of industrialized countries at its current pace of economic growth. The disparity in per capita income was far greater than in the other indicators of living standards. Even if the calculations were off by 10 or even 20%, the gaps remain dismayingly wide.”

And totally off-topic, but totally relevant nevertheless: “Know Your Enemy” by Green Day, the most effing swell single to surface in MTV in a really long while. One doesn’t live a full life without hearing Green Day perform this song live.

Silence is the enemy / Against your urgency / So rally up the demons of your soul
