Video Games: Allows killing of all kinds, gore levels of all acceptability. (Be-heading and then blowing that head up and seeing all the brains fly everywhere)
As a Filipino, I can tell you right now it doesn't mean ANYTHING.
The government is too corrupt to have any real enforcement of this law. Anti sex-trafficking you say? Yeah Go on Google and type in "Angeles City Philippines". Watch the youtube videos of the place.
This isn't gonna change anything.
It's nice seeing some fellow countrymen/women around these parts. I've recently moved to the US. I really agree with you there. The Philippines sucks in terms of law enforcement. Bribing traffic enforcers is very common. The government sucks in general and the masses seem to be mostly uneducated, which doesn't mix well with democracy there.
Piracy is another supposed illegal thing there but it's still rampant. I mean, there are these places where they are concentrated, and I don't see why law enforcement officials don't clean them out. The seem like such easy targets! Maybe because the vendors pay the police to look the other way or something. IT'S STUPID AND I HATE IT!
If only we let the US take hold of us way back then, instead of pushing for independence. I mean, look at Japan now. :lol:
Though seriously, I hope they don't start observing our Skype and other video calls, even if they don't enforce the law, or if they have to, I'd prefer if true professionals do it, but I have a feeling that they might just record the streams and post them online or something. I hope not though video scandals are rampant in the PH as well.
we have an Optical Media Board (http://omb.gov.ph/ombnew/), earlier in it's conception there was indeed some crackdown on pirated optical media - music CDs and movie DVDs were crushed by some machinery and shown off on network TV. Market and malls are still lined with them
There was also active crackdown some years ago on pirated software that made small time internet shop owners close down (though I know for a fact that a major internet cafe chain used pirated windows xp), after some years, nothing came of it
now this? HA!
This is all just for show, politicians showing off that they have 'morals'
you just recently moved to the US and you are suddenly hollier than any of your countrymen? no wonder we dont progress. if you analyze your comment, its mostly if and they. what happened to what "I" can do to help the situation improve... ah, yes.. "I" moved to the US. THAT IS STUPID AND I HATE IT!!!
