Preempting Wowowee

03Aug09

While watching the coverage of the funeral procession of former president Aquino, the commentators repeated over and over that they envied the people in the street… because they can say to the people they know that, “Yes, I was there.”

Thinking to myself, I asked… so what if you were there? Did you really accomplish anything? Did you change for the good?…

… Come to think of it, the true legacy of EDSA isn’t democracy for all, but rather a legacy of a people so embroiled in their own self-image that they will go out and march for whatever perceived wrong they see no matter how idiotic it is and how little they know of what they’re marching for or against.
