Why Local Networks in the Philippines Should NOT BE DUBBING EVERYTHING INTO TAGALOG!
I remembered back in high school how I read the Failipino leftists would say that one must get rid of English and we discussed it over in an English class. The teacher mentioned that as much as one must love their national language but you cannot neglect the importance of the universal language. She mentioned that the Philippines can earn an advantage with its English speaking, because foreigners like Chinese, Korean and Japanese purposely come to the Philippines to learn the language. She mentioned that if the quality of the English among Filipinos decline, the nation may soon become a bigger rathole than it already is.
So what happens when everything is dubbed into Tagalog? The Philippines may consider why China in the first place had a hard time adjusting to the world for so long. In the past, China had been too focused on Mandarin that a lot of Chinese have a hard time speaking proper English. The Philippines had that advantage over China back then with its English. If children are only watching Tagalog dubbed shows just like how the Chinese children are too focused on Mandarin, then one may consider the quality of the English among Filipinos to be deteriorating. In the long run, the Philippines may lose its advantage due to a lack of English language teachers. This in turn will rot the Philippines' advantage of having better English than the rest of Asia (due to it having been colonized by America in a ten year Commonwealth period). In turn, this may give those annoying leftists more power to drive masses into ignorance.
I would also say that the Failipino ultranationalist way of doing things is inconsistent and contradictory. They brag that OFWs means that the Filipinos are taking over the world yet they sometimes want or usually want English to be gotten rid of. Then we have their "No to foreign shows..." as if their appliances were Filipino branded and Filipino made (then their favorite TV networks must get foreign shows to keep running in the long run). If the quality of Filipino English deteriorate, you might end up sending more OFWs who are point blank of foreign language, unable to communicate with English. So really, how can they brag now of Filipinos taking over the world if they can't even communicate properly?!
