Noynoy, Luistro: why are they silent on Denvaxia?


LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Let no one be found among you… who practices divination or sorcery,interprets omens, engages in witchcraft,  or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.  Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord…” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12, the Holy Bible).


NOYNOY, LUISTRO: WHY ARE THEY SILENT ON DENGVAXIA? The silence of both former President Noynoy Aquino and former Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro on the misfortune that has befallen more than 800,000 elementary school children who were forcibly vaccinated with the Dengvaxia vaccine before Noynoy’s term ended on June 30, 2016 is truly deafening.

As I see it, this appears to be a deliberate attempt or a sinister maneuver to make a escape goat or a fall guy out of former Health Secretary and former Iloilo Rep. Janet Garin, to make her the sole official of the defunct Aquino government that would take the blame and perhaps even to face the charges that could include plunder for the Dengvaxia scam.

The fact is, the controversy over the Dengvaxia vaccine has been furiously raging on in the whole country for the last several days already but, Noynoy and Luistro have yet to utter just a single word on the matter. Indeed, the vaccine could not have been administered on our hapless school children if Noynoy and Luistro did not give their consent to it. Why do they appear to be trying to exculpate themselves now by their silence?


BLINDLY FOLLOWING SUPERIORS IS A NO-NO: The case of Garin and Dengvaxia should serve as a lesson to all officials and employees of the Philippine government, at all times. Not just because they have been ordered by their superior officers, or even by the President of the Republic himself, to do certain things, will they already blindly obey even if it would be clear that the orders are highly dubious and would even place them in peril.

The term of office of the superior officers or of the President would surely end one day, and once they step down from power, the protection they promised to their subordinates who would obey even their clearly illegal orders would similarly vanish. The problem perhaps would be a little more bearable if the superior officers would still try to help the subordinates who obeyed them.

But what would be truly deplorableis that, as the case of Garin and Dengvaxia now shows, the subordinate would be left alone to face retribution. If, for any reason, it would happen that Garin would be inveigled to accept sole responsibility for the vaccine mess even if it is clear she acted merely on orders of her higher-ups, it would only be her who would then rot in jail and who may even be ordered to refund the P3.5 billion that the government paid for the vaccine.


WE MUST NOT SELL OUR SOULS JUST FOR POSITIONS OF POWER: Filipinos should learn that, at all times, only the commands of God written in the Bible, and the mandate of duly promulgated laws, that should be made the basis of all their actions in their official responsibilities, or even in their personal concerns as they go about their daily lives.

No one should aspire to be installed in positions of power if that would mean surrendering their principles to the appointing power, or if it would mean blind obedience to commands and directives that would benefit only the powers that be, or would have the effect of compromising the integrity and safety of the appointees.

As the Lord Jesus said, what would profit a man to gain the whole world if his soul goes to the eternal hell of fire and worms anyway, right former Gen. Allan Purisima of the Philippine National Police, and former Gen. Quetulio Napenas of the Special Action Force? The time of reckoning will surely come one day, right generals?
