The country’s martial rule years under the late president Ferdinand Marcos have always been a subject of opposing views. Those old enough to have experienced it attest to its horrors while some of today’s youthful generation (surprisingly) see it as the golden age of the Philippines.
In a video posted on Facebook, the two generations of clashing perspectives were able to share their thoughts about Martial Law with eachother.
The video started with registered voters, from ages 19 to 22, introducing themselves to their elderly counterparts. They were then asked what they thought of the Martial Law years and its effects.
Some of them said Martial Law was good for our country, made the Philippines a respectable nation and instilled public discipline.
All of them also said they were in favor of Martial Law.
