To thine own self be true--that to no one canst thou be false!
I'm thinking that why the Marcoses seem rehabilitated is because following Edsa 2, Filipinos realized that Macoy's diatribe against the unscrupulous "old society" forces has some truth after all. I used to think Marcos was sort of pure evil but now, save perhaps for HR violations/freedom of expression issues, his policies were actually OK.
I mean, even Ninoy Aquino talked of the ills of "old society" where wealth was monopolized by a few. Marcos talked of oligarchs even controlling the media. Are we better off today?
