More national identity and national pride. Being called as the people of the king of a country that colonized us is one of the most shameful thing that happened to our country.

Philippines was derived from the King of Spain. Is it proper? Definitely not because it's the country that invaded us.

The first step in being proactive and defining our destiny is for us to define who we are. We must stop defining ourselves by what our colonizers thought of us. Therefore changing the name The Philippines, to a more indigenous term, Maharlika is necessary to affirm our identity as an Austronesian people. Maharlika Government!

Because the name MAHARLIKA ... is more payriotic and deserving name, it seems it sounds a very ASIANIC OR ASIANLY ... AND NO SIGNS OF COLONIALISM THAN THE PHILIPPINES !!!!!!! It also symbolizes our nationality.

It is important to me because I don't want to remember the struggles we had when we were under the Spanish government.
