Dictatorship then and now
As a side note, I am peeved by young, post-martial law militants who say martial law under Marcos is more desirable than what we have now. Excuse ME!!! At least now we don't have to suffer Rustan's playing "DAHIL SAYO" whenever Imelda Marcos was in their premises shopping for shoes (which I experienced at least three times as a kid). If you're a twenty-something, anti-PGMA, holier-than-thou, "why-the-hell-are-the-rest-of-you-not-protesting-in-the-streets" kind of person and you say that sort of thing... well, HINDI TAYO BATI!
Back then it was a real dictatorship. Today it's just plain pakapalan ng mukha.
