Moving on from Martial Law by Imee Marcos

Imee Marcos explains to Senator Aquino Aquino who presses the issue of the martial law apology that moving on does not mean forgetting the past. It is already in history and no one can change that. The best thing is to learn from it and make sure that it won’t happen again.

The Assessment of Millennials

The millennials are the youths who belong to the generation after the technological advancement. They have all the resources to hear both sides unlike before. The Philippines, in particular, was in the control of the mainstream media. It influences the decision-making of the Filipinos during elections. The black media propaganda against the Marcoses is spread out through its networks worldwide.

Many Apologies are Done Repeatedly

When the anchor asks if an apology must be done by Gov. Marcos, she replies that she has said sorry many times. Apologies to the victims and to others who were hurt because of the incident were undertaken on numerous occasions. However, she cannot apologize on any atrocities because the version that they knew when they were younger, was the opposite of the black media propaganda. Many older people are saying that the Marcos era was more prosperous and peaceful than any administrations after that.

Not in the Authority to Accept Responsibility

Gov. Marcos added that she is not in the position to accept the responsibility brought about by her father’s era. She can only move forward to work on how to improve the lives of Filipinos. Nevertheless, her political enemies especially the Aquinos, are again reviving this old wives’ tale.

Social Media to Air the Marcoses’ Side

Marcos admits that their only mistake was staying quiet about the accusations to her deceased father. They just do not have the outlet to retaliate until social media arrives. This gives them the channel to air their side. Better yet, real people who are witnesses of the said dark ages in the Philippine history also came forward through online platforms burying the half-truths propagated by the Aquino stalwarts. This is to the surprise of the yellow faction that went to the verge of befriending Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg.
