Transcript of POOP Prezi
Rizal was born in Calamba, Philippines on the nineteenth of June 1861.
Rizal came from a wealthy merchant family who lived under Spanish owned property.
However, the Philippines at this time was a third world colony owned by the Spanish.
Spanish authorities would unleash their will anytime on Filipinos and would treat them irrationally and unethically.
Filipinos would always would have been met with discrimination and unequal treatment.
In every province, Filipinos are ruled by corrupted Spanish officials, friars and authorities.
Rizal's ideologies were born out of these crude and harsh conditions in his cultural environment.
Rizal experienced many life-impacting events in his youth growing up in the Philippines. Much of these events occurred during his years in school.
During his younger years, Rizal would be bullied and hazed due to his structure.
One day, his mother Dona Teodora, came under arrest by Spanish authorities for no logical reason. This was a huge emotional impact on Rizal. His family would have to struggle to have their mother come back.
While Rizal was studying college at Ateneo De Municpal in Manila, Rizal encountered a Spanish Authority and did not acknowledge him. The authority gave Rizal a brutal beating as punishment. Rizal reported this incident but his voice was ignored.
In Rizal's next college, Santo Tomas University, many of the professors who are Spanish friars would be notorious for their irrational and racist actions towards their students, especially Filipinos. This would cut Rizal's time in this university short.
Many of the events that happened in Rizal's life influenced him to have a voice in these crises.
The neglect and disrespect given by the Spanish motivated Rizal to take actions against these immoral behaviors.
Being confronted with racism and discrimination made Rizal realize what he needed to do.
Growing up in this harsh environment would lead to Rizal developing his ideologies and philosophies that would counter racism and discrimination in his homeland later in his life.
The Ideologies Behind Rizal
Rizal believed in his ideology of the freedoms and equal rights of the people of the Philippines. The cultural environment in which Rizal grew up was insufferable which lead Rizal to mold these ideologies. Filipinos in the Philippines did not have any rights or freedoms whatsoever. Segregation was a common occurring theme in the Philippines as well. Filipinos did not have a word in government. Most Filipinos were stuck to the bottom end of the social class. The quality of life for most Filipinos were poor compared to the rich. The Spanish ruled the Philippines with an iron fist.

Due to his past events in life, Rizal wanted to right the wrong that was engulfing the Philippines. He wanted to change the Philippines from a country full of powerless people to a land of freedom and equality. However, Rizal promoted freedom and equality in a peaceful manner. He never promoted the use of weapons to achieve his ambitions. He never wished for extinction of the Spanish in the Philippines. He believed that freedom and equality was the light for the Filipinos. These ideologies were the right path for Filipinos. Rizal was a rational thinker. His ideology would be the the main focus and beliefs for the rest of his life.
The people who are obstructing the freedoms and rights of the Filipino people are the Spanish Friars. Rizal believed that they are the main sources of all the problems that were occurring in the Philippines.
The Spanish Friars would act in immoral ways. They would always commit corrupted actions in society. They lead in unethical manners. Filipinos would always be mistreated and met with cruel conduct.
Rizal reprimanded the Spanish's actions but as well criticized their political system. He accused many of the high powering officials of being too corrupt and abusive towards the Filipinos. Filipinos were never treated like real citizens even though they were native. Due to their low class state, high ranking authorities would always take advantage over them.
Rizal believed that countries such as the Philippines should be developed, civilized, educated and self-governed rather than being abused.
Rizal rebuked the immoral treatment received by the Spanish. Many of the cruel conditions that Rizal went through made him mold his firm ideals. His philosophies of freedom and equality was the main driving force of his ideology.
