Rizal’s Program of Reforms

Political Idea #2: Granting and protection of human rights such as freedom of press, freedom of speech and expression, religious freedom, equal protection before the law and freedom of association.

This topic relates as much in the present because of the anti-cybercrime law that the government made. It is now on hold because there were many who opposed in implementing this law. The main reason in opposing the said law is the freedom of speech and expression and the freedom of press which is also in conflict with another existing law.

My opinion regarding this matter is that the government should become specific on what this law contains and have limitations to what it should prevent. I have not read the whole statement but I have heard from the news that there are preventions they wanted to do that is not necessary to prevent. They should not get involved in the social networking sites. They should be focusing on malicious sites and others that could harm the netizens and those who are committing crime through it. I am not against the intention but I think that there are more reasons inside this law other than keeping the people safe from cyber-bullying or preventing crime through the internet.

What’s the point of having this law if even those who made it do not know what they are implementing?

If they are to put into action Rizal’s reforms regarding human rights, they should be appropriate, precise and honest in implementing such programs for the good of the people of the

    Philippine films are shown in Japan, especially Abaya's. III. Conclusion Rizal sa Dapitan was good, the choice of characters was also good, but there should be improvements in the script, cinematography and music. I think the highlights of Rizal’s life was not just only when he was in Dapitan, but during the climax of events before his execution. If someone will ask me to recommend a good Rizal film, I will say it…

    I think that Rizal’s reforms are still valid today. A great man he is, surely his philosophies involved something that of future because great figures always think ahead of time. Moreover, one can hail Rizal as a teacher and so the influence of his teachings is unimaginable. As Henry Adams said, "A teacher affects eternity; no one can tell where his influence stops." Indeed, no one can tell, since we are still influenced by his teachings- the idea that the youth is the hope of our nation is still…
