Bam Aquino is Bias
Bam Aquino may have no idea how martial law is being taught nowadays that’s why he got alerted by the youth’s responses over social media. If he sticks to the real history of the martial law era, Bam Aquino might not like it. Martial law history is compulsory as part of the subject after the passage of Republic Act 10368 or the Human Rights Victims Reparation and Recognition Act of 2013. Aquino, together with the Committee on Youth, is set to lead the inquiry on Tuesday at 9 a.m. Aquino and brainwashed students? Where can the truth come from?
Risa Hontiveros’ False Passion
On the other hand, Akbayan Senator Risa Hontiveros also filed a joint resolution seeking to declare September as a month of national truth-telling on martial law. This is allegedly in line with RA 10368. It is joined by elite student council leaders from Ateneo de Manila University, the activist-driven University of the Philippines, another elite De La Salle University and Adamson University. Hontiveros is so worried that her own interests will not be included by the real historians that will revise the said history.
Public Amenities and Infrastructure During Marcos’ Time
Efficient Modes, Power and Irrigation by Marcos
The various modes of transport during the Martial Law are even more efficient than today’s maintenance especially after the Aquino administration’s failure in maintaining what the late President and the First lady did with the MRT/LRT projects. Bam Aquino better make sure that history mentions that or else it will just be another big lie. He should also give credit to Marcos for the emergence of power plants and irrigation systems that signals the beginning of reformed lands!
