AFTER our experience with the Marcoses, I thought we (Filipinos) should've grown up, a lot. But here we are once more. We just had an ex-president convicted of plunder in a court of law and talks of pardon are quickly laid out and most embarassing of all, a good number of us think that it is the right thing to do. Stupid. The only thing that comes to mind for lack of a stronger word to put sense in this. Why are we like that? Is it because we have been raised like that? To have the right amount of stupidity to put compassion above justice and to be less caring about that person's self-serving actions in the past? Simply because he was perceived as helper of a handful of poor folks who simply don't understand that the reason they are in that situation is because of people like him. So are we really a forgiving nation? No. We are in fact the opposite because we continue to do it over and over again.
