« on: March 04, 2010, 10:03:33 PM »
well taken, WN.  but we fool ourselves by expecting overnight change.  sometimes, change takes its little, hesitant steps by a simple change of leadership. marcos was bad in that he manipulated constitutional change to allow himself to stay in power longer than the stipulated 8 years. (i should know; a relative was a concon delegate then.)  he was good in that he was conscious of his legacy.  sure, he had thousands of presidential decrees.  the subsequent administration, you say, did not change any.  we can't get too nitty-gritty by combing through thousands of decrees, some of which have been modified or have simply become moribund (i.e., PD 1396 of 1978).  we take the good and relevant, we do away with the opposite.  it might be worth noting that the marcos-era constitution itself was changed during the succeeding administration. 

martial law was good?  maybe you didn't have a relative who was arrested sans the writ of habeas corpus?  and that relative disappeared forever?  that's martial law.

i was at home, watching tv, until the tv was turned dead because of the shooting at the tv station's main tower in manila. 

all your historical/cynical claims have basis in fact, wn and lorenzo (though it's hitting the 'nail on the head' and not the 'nail on the coffin,' please), but aren't we also helping perpetuate this system?  we vote for this same people, we behave as if we honor them (don't u.s. fil-am groups invite politicians--- as speakers, as inducting officers of organizations; think boawas of seattle and some other funny acronyms somewhere else--- and roll the red carpet for them?).  sadly, these political leaders could be mirrors of what we are.  we may deserve them even if we feel we don't.

edsa I was a nation's effort to effect change.  after 21 years, we have bent backward too long.  the process may have had its failings.  there may have been puppeteers who held the strings.  (well, who says revolutions don't have manipulators?)  the results may be disappointing as we are disappointed now.  but edsa uno at least assured us that power is still in the people. 

let the new generation learn better and effect change better.  best of all, let the new generation be better politicians than their elders.  (by the way, is jinggoy better than erap?)  

p.s.  that shooting at the tv tower in quezon city... one of the more poignant pictures of edsa I was of a dead soldier dangling from the tower.  there were two of them. the other survived; he turned out to be the brother of our neighbor.  i met him and he struck me as somewhat bonkers.  he couldn't get over the death of his buddy. 

(do you think we could have a forum such as tb if it were still marcos?  i was banned from showing up at the office for some days because i wore yellow once.)  that's why i believe edsa uno was not for nothing.

thanks, mdb.  this islander dreams of migrating to the u.s., though.  then there would have been many of us, like-minded and like-faced immigrants, ahahay! i should have been continental by then.  no longer an islander should i be.  (but that's only a dream.  i will nevah, nevah, evah leave this place where i belong.) ;D
