Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. George Santayana
Well, that’s the message that social media blogger Krizette Laureta Chu wants to impart to the reading public amidst the squabbling of our political scene.
If you notice, members of the Liberal Party are trying all their might to fan the flames of discontent against the government by riding on the issues of rising prices of fuel and commodities.
And do you know this tactics of the Liberal Party is nothing new?
That’s what Chu uncovered while browsing through old newspaper clip!
Please turn your attention on the part where Chu drew a circle in the newspaper clippings?
The text read: “The LP will launch a ‘welfare program with the people getting the priority.’ Turning on President Marcos, Aquino asked, ‘Can the people eat these infrastructures?'”
See? The LP politicians of today are simply taking a page from Ninoy Aquino’s LP playbook.
Chu laments that if the public will listen to the critics doom and gloom prophecies, then this country will never rise above mediocrity.
Anyway, here’s the full text of Krizette Chu’s post below.
Just reposting this picture. While I was browsing through an old copy of a newspaper, I saw this.
We are where we are right now because we allowed people without vision to lead us.
As for saying this is out of context, and that during that time the PH was going hungry, within the same year there was news that the government has doubled agriculture output. This was pre Martial Law, years before Marcos declared ML in the country.
And because we don’t learn from the lessons of history, we see this happening again with people complaining about taxes that will fund infrastructure. We see them politicizing what should be something unifying. Something to give us hope, especially because we’ve been wanting and hoping for this for years. But no, they choose to be petty. They choose to be negative. They choose to listen to gloom and doom when these people who prophesy gloom and doom NEVER gave them a good Philippines anyway. The height of stupidity.
If we continue to listen to them, we’re never going to rise as a country.
If we continue to follow the ways that we were told were good for us, during the time we didn’t know how to question, we are never going to progress.
It’s time to stop listening to those who say we shouldn’t and we can’t. It’s time we follow what’s good for us, according to us.
