In Imelda’s World…

Did you see GMA-7 reporter Tina Panganiban Perez’s interview with Imelda Marcos last night?

From that interview, we could conclude that in Imelda’s world, the following are inalienable truth:

  • Martial Law gave us not only freedom, justice, and democracy but also dignity and identity.
  • The dictator’s reign was peaceful.
  • Imelda was never extravagant.
  • Martial Law was one of the greatest periods in Philippine history.

On the other hand, these are fiction:

  • Tens of thousands of detractors of marcos were jailed, tortured and executed without due process. Human rights were violated.
  • The freedom of expression, including the freedom of the press was curtailed.
  • Ferdinand Marcos plundered between five and 10 billion dollars from the national coffers and left us in poverty.
  • The Marcos regime left huge debts that we are still paying until now.
  • Martial Law instituted a culture of lies and corruption.
