The Philippines is the Geographic and Geopolitical Center of the World

"This is the Philippines... This is China, this is Russia... This is the east, the west. And the equator. As anyone could see, the Philippines was right at the center of the globe. I'm surprised nobody saw this. As Chairman Mao said, you can change ideologies anytime, but you can never change geography. Geopolitics! This is what will make the Philippines great and beautiful again."
  -- explaining her "masterplan for the country" by drawing a map of the world, quoted in Today, April 1998

It is so obvious and staring us all in the face that we failed to see it! We need an Imelda to point us to the true, the good, and the beautiful. God, as Imelda says, is truth and beauty made real.

  1. I have been searching for a globe highlighting either the Philippines and North America or just the Philippines when I came across the globe pictured above.

    My search is for a logo for our newly chartered Global Kalinga e-Rotary Club, based in the Philippines. The globe above would be an ideal globe for our logo. Would it be possible to have permission to use this globe? You may check our web site at:

    and our discussion about the logo on our FB at:
