8 Things That Could Actually Be Buried In That Tomb Right Now
By Tim Henares
In case you didn’t know, despite the recent burial of the dictator and former president Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani, there still appears to be a body remaining in his mausoleum. Some have insisted this was a replica, but what if it wasn’t?
Allow us to speculate whatever is now buried in Libingan ng mga Bayani might actually be.
8. Yamashita’s Treasure
If they once again buried the infamous Yamashita’s Treasure, claimed to be the source of wealth for the Marcoses, then we have come full circle, haven’t we?
7. Sandro Marcos’s Intellect
This explains why he shaded two presidents on the ballot. Among other things.
6. Marcos’s lips
As we say in Filipino, “ililibing ang mga labi ni Ferdinand Marcos.” Maybe that’s all they actually buried there, and no other body parts?
5. Imelda Marcos
The current one walking around is an automaton, programmed to talk about the good, the true, and the beautiful at the drop of a hat.
4. Dovie Beams
3. A payload of uranium
Well, it doesn’t look like the BNPP is going to restart anytime soon, so…
2. All remaining copies of “The Conjugal Dictatorship”
Well, revising history seems to be the order of the day for this burial, to begin with.
1. The dignity, hopes, and dreams of anyone seeking justice from the Marcos regime.
Despite multiple convictions in the courts of law, justice remains elusive to those who need it the most. While an overwhelming majority of the people insisting we all move on are the people who were never once affected by the ravages of Martial Law, yet are the first ones to insist that until we have a family member killed by a drug addict, we could never understand why we should kill addicts and pushers alike.
It isn’t so much that we buried the Martial Law victims along with Marcos in LNMB, because that would at least be some semblance of honor for them. It is more like we swept them under the rug. Because, just as it is with our president, it is the most convenient thing to do: not necessarily the right one.
