As Return of Kings readers are well aware, I’ve been singing the praises of the Philippines for a while now. While I’ve never particularly cared for Asian women, Filipinas are so cute and easy that it’s impossible for any man with a heart to not fall in love with the place. While I’m resigned to spending at least part of the year back in the U.S. due to health reasons, I’m planning on going back to the Philippines sometime this year.
Unfortunately, as Roosh and other writers have discussed, numerous countries full of sweet, loving girls are being assimilated into the American Borg. Poland, Brazil and other love tourist destinations are becoming infected with the viruses of feminism, fattiness and smartphone addiction, transforming their women into ersatz Americans more interested in their “careers” than in finding a man to take care of them.
Will the Philippines become the next nation poisoned by America’s toxic culture? On the surface, it would seem that Filipinas are ripe for plugging into the matrix of the U.S. Most Filipinos are fluent in English, removing one of the most powerful barriers to Americanization; smartphones are ubiquitous even among poor people; Filipinos’ love of McDonald’s and other fast food greasepits (along with their own ludicrously unhealthy cuisine) have sown the seeds for an obesity epidemic in the coming years.
However, I believe that the Philippines will be able to resist the worst parts of Americanization, at least for the next few decades. Here’s why.
1. The Philippines’ geography protects it from excessive tourism
This sounds like a weird thing to bring up, but the Philippines’ isolated location will insulate it from the most degenerate expats. Because the country is an archipelago, the only way in is through sea or air. The added expense of going to the Philippines will deter many of the losers who infest Thailand, Cambodia, and other expat destinations on the mainland.
While it’s possible that the Thai government’s sudden insistence on chasing out foreigners (despite the fact that foreign tourism is the only reason Thailand hasn’t become a communist shithole) will lead to a boost in Philippine tourism, the Philippines’ relative distance from other Southeast Asian countries will probably convince most ex-Thailand residents to relocate nearby to Cambodia or Vietnam.
2. American feminism has nothing to offer Filipinas
Feminists typically and cynically sell their ideology as a means of offering women equal rights, but the problem is that Filipino women already have equal rights. Filipinas can work, vote, go to school and exercise virtually any freedom that their American counterparts have. Indeed, you could make the argument that Filipinas are more free considering that the Philippines has had two women presidents while the U.S. has had zero.
Because Filipinas are already legally equal to men, the virus of American feminism is stripped of one of its most important vectors. Without the Trojan horse of women’s liberation, all feminists have to offer Filipinas is socially sanctioned sluttiness, materialism, and loneliness. Thanks to the continued strength of Filipino families, Filipinas still prioritize marriage and children over pointless personal pleasures, depriving American feminism of the soil it needs to grow.
3. The Philippine birth rate is still incredibly high
One of the best indicators of a nation’s spiritual health is its fertility rate. Nations with artificially low birth rates end up that way due to a combination of economics and moral degeneracy. Virtually every western nation, for example, has a fertility rate below the replacement rate of 2.1. The only nation that is even close to replacement levels is the U.S. at 2.02, and that’s largely due to the influence of illegal Latinos.
At 3.06 babies born per woman, the Philippines has one of the highest birth rates in Asia. While having too many children brings with it its own problems, the fact that Filipinos are still cranking out kids speaks to their pride and moral strength. Not only that, if your goal is to bang a lot of girls, the high birth rate helps you by giving you an ever-expanding menagerie of girls to choose from. So many Filipinas turn 18 every day that unless you ply your trade in a small city, you’ll never have to worry about being found out.
4. Philippine culture is unusually open and xenophilic
The Philippines is the most pro-U.S. country in the world; in fact, Filipinos feel more positively about America then Americans themselves do. While there are scammers and scumbags in the Philippines (like in every other country), Filipinos are more welcoming and accommodating to foreigners than any other people I’ve encountered so far. While this might seem like it would make the country susceptible to feminism and fattitude, think again.
The best analogy I can think of for Filipino culture is the katamari from Katamari Damacy: a giant adhesive ball that sucks up everything it encounters and makes it its own. Filipinos are masters of cultural appropriation; much of modern Filipino culture has been derived in some form from other countries, namely China, Spain and the U.S.
This aspect of the Filipino character can be seen in everything from their cuisine, to their religion (the Philippines is one of only two predominantly Christian nations in Asia), to their literature (see José Rizal’s NOVEL Noli me tangere) to the unique English slang they’ve developed.
Yet despite their appetite for foreign cultures, Filipinos have retained their own unique identity. Because of this, and because of many of the Philippines’ other qualities, I expect that the country will be one of the last holdouts in our culturally Marxist world. Prospective love tourists will be able to find happiness with a Filipina long after all the other poosy paradises have become wastelands of iCrack cuntiness.
