Bloated budget which will never pass in a conscientious law making body. It was not the law abiding people who were scammed by such executive act but the budget of the country. To be funded, a barrio or barangay must submit proof that insurgency has ceased to exist in their jurisdiction. Usually with sacrificial lambs to be eliminated in total violation of human rights?

It’s time to elevate the level of campaign and really focus on the more serious side of the business. To touch on the issue of this article first, I think it’s not positive to talk about the possible dissolution of an office once you get to power.

On the millennials, yes, people who have no clear understanding of what happened during the Marcos years tend to lean on the safe side. Since they are not ‘direct witnesses’ of what transpired they tend to give the benefit of the doubt on questions of placing blame.

If people aren’t being told by their parents or lolos or lolas, then either parents (or grand) are dumb or forgetful, or they were not affected at all.
Take Pol Pot for instance. I’m sure every Cambodian knows that you get another Pol Pot, forget Tiktok. Mao is a hero, because there was never a person that said he wasn’t.
It is very much family history. There are families (many in UP for instance) who suffered under oro where BBM hardly got votes even though he found it strange, but his father’s massacres there are unforgotten.
