1943H Main Library (maingay)

Sabi mo, pinagpala ang mga aba’t dukha
dahil sa iyong kaharian, sila’y makakasama
Pero ito’y magkakaroon ng katuparan
kapag naipanalo na ang digmaan
ng pinagsasamantalahang mamamayan
laban sa malalaking kapitalista’t gahaman
at naging ganap ang tunay na kalayaan
Kaya, o diyos na mapagpalaya,
dinggin at patnubayan mo, nawa
ang aming mga kapatid na magsasaka
sa kanilang makatarungang pakikibaka
para sa pantay na bahaginan ng sagana
na sinalubong ng bala at dahas
dahil dadating daw ang kampon ni Satanas
na may pinangakong huwad na lunas
sa kahirapang araw-araw na dinaranas
Nawa’y ang kanilang matibay na paninidigan
ay huwag ituring na kabalintunaan o kahangalan
ng mga taong gobyerno lang ang pinapaniwalaan
Nawa’y ang lakas ng kanilang pagkilos
ay magiging daluyong na umaagos
kasabay ng paglalagablab ng galit
ng sambayanang maniningil
sa ngalan ng hustisyang panlipunan
kidapawan

  • Stanley Fischer and the twilight of technocracy September 14, 2017
    IN 2004 Stanley Fischer described the wonder he felt as an economics student in the 1960s. “You had a set of equations”, he said, “that meant you could control the economy.” Technocracy—the dream of scientific government by a caste of wise men—arose in the 20th century, as rapid change rendered the world unfathomably complex; in economics, it came of age in […]
