People don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.
And that’s the problem today. There’s so much lies being peddled around.
They say that senile dementia has set in with the 95 year old politician who lied about the peachy years during the Marcos Martial Law. I beg to disagree. While mental deterioration in the elderly is a normal phenomenon, there is a clear difference between lying and dementia. His pronouncement is not only disgusting but outrageous as well.
The only people who are mad at you for speaking the truth are those who are living a lie.
He benefitted from the ouster of a dictator. He slept with the political foes and friends. He and his family has amassed wealth out of his existence in politics. It is a shame that there are fools who even believe his pronouncements that no one was ever killed during the Martial Law years.
Denying the truth does not change the facts. And history can never be rewritten to benefit a few.
As a people, the actions of politicians who twist the truth is tantamount to betraying a nation.
We will never change what we tolerate.
There is a need to recalibrate our moral compass if we are to survive as a nation.
And this old man is not the only liar in our midst.
