Philippine Government Morally Must Crush New People’s Army

First published in The Objective Standard Blog, September 13, 2012.

CommunistsThe communist insurgency known as the New People’s Army has admitted to bombing a carnival in the Philippines and injuring scores of civilians, including many children. The NPA has apologized for the civilian casualties, as if such a thing were unforeseeable when attacking a carnival.

In their effort to establish a dictatorship in the Philippines, the NPA has inflicted brutality after brutality upon the Filipino people—from perpetrating massacres, to “recruiting” children as soldiers in their cause, to destroying the property of those who refuse to bow to their collective will.

Filipinos who care about their lives and liberties must demand that the Philippine government summarily destroy the New People’s Army, and, to do so, Filipinos will have to recognize and embrace the moral rightness in taking such action. As I wrote in “Around the World: ‘The Communist War against the Philippines and Why It Rages On’”:

The Philippine armed forces clearly have the means to destroy the communist threat; what Filipinos and their government need is the moral resolve to allow the military do so.

If Filipinos want peace, security, and prosperity, they must come to recognize that the communist ideal of “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” is morally wrong, politically wrong, and thus economically disastrous. Filipinos must demand that their government end the peace talks with the Communist Party, destroy the New People’s Army, and demand that all communist groups terminate their activities immediately or face retribution.

The NPA’s latest atrocity further underscores the urgent need for the Philippine government to destroy the communist menace.

  1. I want to express some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of such a setting. As a result of browsing through the search engines and meeting notions that were not helpful, I assumed my entire life was over. Existing without the presence of strategies to the problems you’ve sorted out by means of your guideline is a serious case, and those that would have in a negative way damaged my career if I had not discovered the website. Your main knowledge and kindness in touching all areas was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a solution like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for this reliable and result oriented help. I won’t hesitate to endorse the blog to anybody who should have recommendations about this problem.
