Within a span of 4 or 5 generations from
now, the Philippines can conquer the world, not with missiles and bullets, but
with the loving presence of its care givers and health care workers. To achieve
this long-term goal, the government must take basic steps now.

By 2050, it is possible that a hectare of
land can produce a variety of food items in volumes that are enough to feed
entire cities. It is also possible that one capsule of drug is enough to
provide a week of nourishment for one person. It is also possible, by 2100,
that medical science is able to prolong the average life span of human beings to
150 years; that Earth and Mars are connected by commercial flights; or
earthlings may have begun to touch base with other creatures outside of the
solar system.

Rapid advances in information and
communications technology can pave the way for nations without political and
territorial boundaries. Imagine, according to the Illuminati, John Lennon et
al, when the world will live as one. All spheres of human life are bound to
undergo mind-boggling changes, except in two things: desires of the heart and
aging.

The desires of the human heart will
continue to be as rebellious the way it was during the figurative days of Adam
and Eve. Humans will continue to defy their creator, asserting that they have
the power, knowledge, resources and money by which to control the world and
everything that squats in it—from altering physical appearances to the killing
of living creatures and the defiling of the environment.

Money will continue to drive human desires,
the worship of which will have few rivals. At any rate, anything that compels
attention—from state killings to gender issues—will have the same age-old
theme: undermining divine authority by showing how we can do things on our own.

The rise of homosexuality is subtly
fulfilling, for it mocks God and attributes to him veritable defects in his
creation. Nuclear wars and the irreversible destruction of the environment brought
about by global warming and climate change may lead to the end of the world,
but the one sure thing that can hasten the close of the age—breaking the
interconnectivity of the human soul—is homosexuality.

Then there is aging. For the promise of
profit, science can be exploited to damp down its process and make human beings
live longer. However, except for a boost in longevity, aging and death will
continue to be dreaded facts of life.

The world’s most affluent countries face
uneasy forecasts of demographic weather due to their aging population and
falling birth rates. Poor to middle income countries with healthy birth rates,
like the Philippines, can map their future with an eye for invasion by their
geriatric caregivers.

A 2018 study by Persistence Market Research
projects that the global aged care services market will hit the 2 trillion
dollar mark by 2026. It also estimates that the geriatric population (aged 65
and older) will hit 2 billion by that same period. Japan (27 percent of total
population), Italy (23 percent), Portugal (22 percent), Germany (21 percent) and
Finland (21 percent) lead all countries with the highest elderly population;
the USA, 19 percent of the projected total population (or 65 million of 345
million) will be 65 years or older by 2025, according to
populationpyramid.net.  

Governments of well-off countries like the
USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand, provide vouchers for qualified
beneficiaries of aged-care services. These vouchers are used to pay for
services made available by private institutions, who get paid by government upon
submission of used vouchers.

Traditional values of respect for elders
and close family ties give Fililipino care givers a distinct “competitive
advantage” over other exporters of contract workers in this niche; the Filipino
caregivers and health workers are widely accepted
and preferred worldwide by foreign clients who are under treatment, according
to a 2017 joint study by Japan’s Rissho University and Hosei University.      

The Philippine government can exploit this
niche by developing and implementing a coordinated set of strategies.
Components may include incentives for schools, universities or other learning
and training institutions that support programs for caregiving and health care
professionals. The Philippine Retirement Authority (PRA) should take a
proactive and a more aggressive entrepreneurial role by building institutional
facilities for aged care services, which includes, aside from infrastructure
inputs, staffing and human resource development.

Since a large portion of the market is
found in well-off countries such as Japan, US as wells as those in Europe, the
PRA may solicit proponents through the public-private partnership program who
shall build these facilities in all cities where investments of this kind are
allowed. These facilities shall be able to provide a complete range of day care
services, including care for common geriatric ailments like dementia and
arthrities as well as capacity to send professionals for home service. A
variety of contractual arrangements can be explored, such as
Build-and-transfer, Build-lease-and-transfer, Build-operate-and-transfer, or
Build-own-and-operate, and pick whatever is feasible.

The next step of the strategy is for the
government to be able to send families—not individuals—to these embedded
aged-care hubs in batches. Like spies sent on a mission, these families will be
expected to blend with local communities, and be weaned from their mother
institutions within a span of 5 to 10 years. Another wave of caregivers and
health professionals can then be deployed to these centers as soon as mission
spots become vacant.

Four or five generations will be enough to
populate the world with seeds spawned from waves upon waves of caregivers and
health workers sent by the government to foreign shores. When total conquest is
done, the Filipino race of tomorrow will be able to tame countries that rule
today by military might, not by threat of destruction, but by the power of
caring and love.
