"What does 1896 teach us about the beginnings of the Filipino nation? Rape, election fraud, rigged trials, jealousy, hunger for power, intrigue, assassination, and much more. Despite our pride in our so-called progress, truth is that we have not changed much in a hundred years. That is one of the painful lessons of Bonifacio's story." - from "Bones of Contention: The Andres Bonifacio Lectures" by Ambeth R. Ocampo
