In connection with the 25th year celebration of EDSA People Power 1, Senator Bongbong Marcos issued a very bold statement yesterday: the Philippines would have been like Singapore economically should EDSA 1 did not happen. He further said that his father has great plans for the Philippines back then.
– Back then, everything is chaotic.– Economy is at all time low.– Corruption is a way of life.– The martial law was a failure. Human rights violations are not found in any law books.– Plus, every body knows that his dad was very sick and dying.
So, I can't understand what's Sen. Marcos' basis for saying this. EDSA 1 might have failed us in a lot of ways, but couldn't we agree that we're better off without a dictator?
