Define false saint. After revelations about Pres. Cory Aquino has been unleashed, I started to think that my history professor IS RIGHT that she should not be the Mother of Democracy. I could really sense that our history textbooks are whitewashed, just like how Japan’s Ministry of Education whitewashes the events during the World War II. I also really sense that the educational system has been monopolized. Kung nakalkal ang mga baho nila Marcos, there are still some people who do not like him WITH RESPECT, but for me, I really admire Marcos, but the downside is, he was too abusive and did not even glanced at his own limitations. Same with Kumareng Imeldific. However, despite their “dubiousness” in terms of credibility, they are so far more “LOUD” when it comes to their actions–they don’t whitewash their shenanigans (in other words, they’re honest sinners).
But my respect towards the Cojuangco-Aquino is something really disputed. First of all, I think the Aquino side is more credible since Ninoy was supposed to be Marcos’ heir to the presidency (after all, it was NOT Marcos who plotted Ninoy’s assassination, but it was Marcos’ henchmen who plotted it). Also, I think that the Cojuangco side was more dubious since their lineage dates back to well… check out PinoyMonkeyPride for more.
