The “Noli…” drama continues

Noli Me Tangere

Notwithstanding the superb, moving portrayal of the main characters by its actors and actresses, the tear-jerker hit telenovela, ‘Maria Clara at Ibarra,’ is seen to be a far cry less dramatic and heart-wrenching depiction of the novel Noli Me Tangere than how its author, Jose Rizal, our national hero, wanted his larger than life opus to come alive in our time as an eye-opening, soul-jolting masterpiece.

There can be no sequel to a novel that hasn’t ended yet just as nobody will ever be considered having finished reading Noli Me Tangere who got bored or without fathoming its ingenious poetry and appreciating the plot in its entirety and profundity. The symbolism and representations of each character, scene and object within each page, from cover to cover, are equally paramount to grasp – if our people and nation were to be served, enlightened, challenged, inspired, transformed and progress – not entertained.

From the time of Rizal and the Katipuneros, nothing has changed in the heart and soul of Filipinos except that we have been calling ourselves a “free country,” yet a country well under the clutches and colony of internal, infernal (not foreign) power, with many in positions of power remaining imprisoned in unlit, murky, crooked caverns of their own making, courtesy of our brand of ‘democracy’

In fairness to BBM, much of the gags and tears that have been coming out one by one (from corruption to onion, from annihilation and destabilization to China invasion, and more) are nothing but spin-offs/offshoots of infamies and imbecilities of the previous godless administration. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” – Psalm 33:12

President Ferdinand M. Marcos Jr. found the World Economic Forum to be a convenient/ideal place to reveal a truth about his intentions in running for elective posts and eventually for President of our country. He confessed, “… for us to defend ourselves politically, somebody had to enter politics and be in the political arena.”

Thank you Mr. President for your forthrightness, but hear this please, your honor.: No leader of a nation will and can ever be on track and succeed who makes revival of a name or “political survival” of his family as his driving force/motivation/reason in running for elections and ultimately in leading/”serving” the whole country. Prognosticum. We don’t defend the truth. The truth defends us.
