    YOU KNOW WHAT I DON'T GET ABOUT THESE PEOPLE WHO INSIST THAT THE PEOPLE POWER REVOLUTION WAS A MISTAKE?

    EVEN IF WE GRANT FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT, DESPITE THE PREPONDERANCE OF EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, THAT UNDER MARCOS, THE PHILIPPINES WAS GENERALLY SAFE AND PROSPEROUS...

    THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WERE IMPRISONED, TORTURED, OR KILLED FOR SPEAKING OUT AGAINST HIS REGIME.

    WAS A SUPPOSEDLY STRONG ECONOMY WORTH ALL THAT?

    I DON'T IMAGINE THAT THE LIVES OF THESE NAYSAYERS WERE AT STAKE.
