Masbate BM Arevalo warns against aggressive historical revisionism
Masbate Senior Provincial Board Member Jason Arevalo warned against the distortion of truth which affects the future of the country.
“Against well-oiled candidates, paid and organized legions of trolls, and a gullible electorate, 2022 does not forebode well for well-meaning Filipinos,” Arevalo said.
“If the tides are not turned and complacency and fatalism take the better part of us, the elections next year will most certainly leave two sure casualties in the aftermath: the Truth and this nation’s Future,” he added.
Arevalo noted that the history is “aggressively being twisted” even as early as now.
“And the revisionists’ drum beaters and propagandists are preoccupied no end, flooding online platforms with their spins, half-truths and lies. If left unchecked and if these people succeed, what we know now as history will be their story,” he said.
“Our cries of ‘never again’ may just end up with ‘once again,'” he added.
