Revising the revisionist Philippine history as told by the ‘victors’

“History is written by the victors.” ― Walter Benjamin  The quote is commonly misattributed to Winston Churchill.  Maybe it wasn’t even a quote by Benjamin, but by a loser smoking a Marlboro, who knows?  Who cares?  In the Philippines, where poverty rules, history has hardly a room.  There are victims, rather than victors.  There are […]

Destroying the Philippines’ social fabric one TV show at a time
