In one of the most extreme ironies in this century, we can see that a wrong-headed deed promoted by the President of the Philippines awakened knowledge, through its disciples, people who actually read books and are not internet zombies.
Now the trolls will call them “elitists”, and Mocha Uson and Sass Sasot will condemn students and schools in an effort to put out the fires. But that can only inflame them more because knowledge knows truth from fiction and decency from indecency.
The Marcos burial awakened knowledge, and along with it, hope.
The young people of the Philippines, and the institutions to which they belong, have done Filipinos proud. They stood up. For truth, for decency, for honor.
