During my younger years, I've also been brainwashed to believe that:
(1) Nothing truly positive could have come out of Marcos.
(2) If others were given a chance to rule, they can even outdo Marcos.
(3) Given more than 20 years, the combined efforts of succeeding regimes should surely far outweigh Marcos' accomplishments.
But facts that could be empirically verified only indicate that none of those beliefs were true.
I've been deeply regretting having rooted for Cory and the Aquinos. The only thing Cory and the Aquinos did was lower the bar of not only competence, and actual accomplishments, but also of responsibility, honesty, and accountability.
The only department that has arguably accomplished anything in the Aquino gov't is their brainwashing/propaganda media department. No regime has so vigorously been so keen & have invested so much at ruining its political enemies and opposition, through hate campaigns and dirty politics, as the Aquino gov't(s).
