“History is written by the victors.” - Winston Churchill / Unknown Origin
The curse cast upon sheeple (the average you and me) is that the truth is flexible and malleable with money and influence. For those who possess power and influence or are in a position to manipulate on a grander scale, history can be overwritten by people who have the resources to twist it.
In reference to local circumstances, people have been obsessive in criticizing the government's initiative to uncover the truth of previous wrongdoings and conspiracies (regardless of who the President is, it just so happens it is Mr. Aquino). If you allow the wrongs of recent past to be ignored, to linger, and to fester then it just means corruption can be done over and over again and people will move on and forget. Just stay away from the clutches of law enforcement and the judicial system for 30 years and voila, a new generation sees new persons right before their eyes.
