ALDub vs Philippine History in Today’s Generation

Is it me or is today’s youth fixated on trivial things far too much? I’m not going to pretend like I’m an expert at Philippine history nor am I going to pretend like I didn’t have my share of crazy Tabing Ilog or Meteor Garden moments, but something like the ALDub (did I capitalize that right?) vs Pastillas craze? That never happened in my generation (I sound like such a Lola).

A few days ago, a friend of mine posted this on social media because she received over 50 mentions and 20 RTs all because she didn’t capitalize the L in her #ALDubEBforLOVE hashtag:

Okay… First of all, hashtags are not case-sensitive. And second of all, if these kids would channel all of that energy into advocating something more useful and beneficial to their fellowmen, I’m sure we’d live in a much better country right now.

Maybe it has something to do with social media being so rampant nowadays and maybe it’s not even this generation’s fault, but I really think importance should be placed on things that aren’t so ALDub and Pastillas-related. I’ll let these photos do the rest of the talking.
