During my Ateneo days, I hardly saw him because he was stationed in Rome most of the time. Being a neophyte in historical studies, I accepted the advice of my British teachers without hesitation.

The senior author assumes full responsibility for this limitation. It has been his belief, expressed on many occasions both in and outside the University, that with few exceptions, the documents of the pre Philippines deal almost exclusively with the history of Spain in the Philippines. The Cornell years are treated in [ibid.

The timing of my discovery of The Revolt of the Masses was fortuitous. The Filipino student movement, which had been building up since the mids, had reached a head with the storming of the Presidential Palace gates by student activists in January These are the questions I explore in this essay.

Japanese Rule and the Return of the Revolution, The Revolt of the Masses was entered in a contest conducted in and was unanimously judged best entry by a board composed of Jaime C.

Rodriguez, and Faustino Aguilar. It was [literary critic Leopoldo] Yabes who compelled me to. This event was hooked on directly to the events of the Philippine Revolution and to early Japanese support for it. Rizal was the dominant symbol of this event. Loud and prolonged cheers rent the air as the old flag fluttered in the breeze, alone. Furthermore, the detail about the crowd shedding tears of joy indicates the return of the past the unfinished revolution in this flag-raising event.

Although the Second Republic enjoyed a short life-span October 14, to August 17, it pursued many initiatives that would bear fruit after The Laurel government took advantage of the opportunities offered by the Japanese policy of de-Americanization and the search for Oriental roots.

It pursued its own nationalist agendas in the areas of foreign policy, language, national history, and character building, even though the return of the Americans prevented much from actually being implemented. But the Japanese invaded in and their occupation is likened by Roxas to a Dark Age.

Our hearts were prepared when the Americans came in It is a spirit, a tradition and a way of life. We are to be a free nation largely because we were aided in that direction by the love of liberty and the goodwill of the American people. If we succeed as a nation, if we are able to survive as a nation and of course we will we will have America to thank. But his reassertion of the official narrative of Philippine progress under U. The opposition was pushing the line that the Revolution had been disrupted by the U.

The Japanese had certainly encouraged the disavowal of the notion of U. The U. Our feeling toward America is not represented by the loud complaints of an articulate few in our midst.

The forces of evil may be defeated, but they are not dead. And there are new forces of evil growing even in nations which were our allies. His speech at this historic occasion is an important document in that it attempts to provide a seamless interpretation of Philippine history from the first stirrings of nationalism in the second half of the nineteenth century to its embodiment in the nation-state that has become independent on July Fourth.

Roxas speaks of the nation as a child that was nurtured by U. But in this supreme moment we must likewise pay tribute to the great apostles of freedom of many lands who contributed to our independence and nationhood, just as surely as if they had lived and died on our soil. The discourse on heroes follows the same pattern. Thus the Filipino people have a head start in entering the world stage. A lavish monument was erected at his execution site, and lesser but no less imposing ones on practically every town plaza.

The promotion of this central, unifying figure was especially crucial during the tumultuous postwar period.

But did it have his blessing? Who knows? Subsequent events, however, proved that American occupation of the Philippines was the highest blessing that ever befell the Filipinos similar in a way to the advent of Spain.

At about the time Roxas and Quirino were delivering their speeches about historical epochs, unfinished revolution, and the spirit of Rizal, Agoncillo was beginning to publish parts of his Revolt of the Masses manuscript. The second paragraph states: The more than three hundred years of Castilian overlordship did not yield for the Filipinos any degree of progress in the political, economic, social and agrarian fields. Add another fifty to those three hundred years of Castilian overlordship and have the Filipinos dismantled their feudalistic economy?

So fiery and subversive were the contents of the paper that in less than six months, the membership of the Katipunan rose to more than thirty thousand. People flocked to the leaders of the Katipunan and demanded immediate revolt against Spain. In its second issue Aug. They should fight with all their might against the present tendency to recede into prewar reaction and status quo. While we may deal with these causes in their present forms in this series of articles, we will here discuss them from a purely historical standpoint.

Llanes is a staff member of the Manila Times. Clearly, Llanes and Agoncillo shared the same viewpoint about the past. The Katipunan was founded by a plebeian, Andres Bonifacio, and its membership was mostly of the masses, the aparceros, the agricultural laborers and the landless tenants. In the end the Revolution failed because the upper-class nationalists betrayed the masses through the Pact of Biak-na-bato in The copy I have is a mimeographed version dating from the student movement in The Revolution failed as a social revolution.

The peasant is discontented because it cannot make a decent living out of the land, under the present semi-feudal system of tenancy. Army in For the Huks, independence in meant betrayal, not fulfillment. When they pretended to give us independence, in , it was only as a smokescreen to hide an R.

For the Huks and the many intellectuals and activists sympathetic to this movement, the events of to , involving a liberation that turns into a betrayal, and an independence that masks continuing exploitation, were viewed through the prism of history. This had been the case throughout the previous decades; the educational system under the Americans had promoted this thinking. In the late s, the question of Rizal versus Bonifacio was more than an academic exercise.

The debate lay at the core of the ideological struggle that manifested itself in an armed rebellion and its suppression by the state and its imperial patron. There was something fiercely noble in the gait of him on whose shoulders hung the heavy weight of years. His white hair contrasted sharply with his tanned face.

He could not have been greater than the Katipunan.

Nor could he have risen above it. He looms great because of the society. But there is another angle to this. In framing the story of Bonifacio and the Katipunan in terms of an organized movement drawn from the masses that is betrayed by the educated and propertied class, Agoncillo was providing a historical lineage to the Huk rebellion. The Revolt of the Masses could have immediately been disseminated, but its publication had to wait eight years, until Overtly the problem in was a protest lodged by General Aguinaldo against the prizewinning manuscript.

The appointment of the committee was postponed in deference to the amnesty proclamation of June 25 aimed at attracting officials and members of the Hukbalahap and PKM back to the government fold. Included in its roster of seven was the Representative from Zambales and future President, Ramon Magsaysay. There is more to this than meets the eye, however. This may have taken place during the general amnesty from June to mid-August. Mariano himself worked as a typesetter and was active in the Union of Printers.

One senses that the CUFA knew this, for they were at great pains to demonstrate that they Villareal, Magsaysay, and the rest and not Balgos and his fellow travelers, were the authentic bearers of the Filipino revolutionary tradition.

Balgos speak of revolution and use of force, which mean one and the same thing armed force. But it does not condemn armed revolution per se. It then becomes a question of whose revolution is legitimate. The latter threaten our freedoms, so we are entitled to defend them.

The rich element, which had everything to lose and practically nothing to gain personally, generally was not unaware of the hostility of the society towards the wealthy, the landlords in general, including the friar- suzerain. He has not prepared it himself, we know. Front Cover. Teodoro A. Asian Culture in the Philippines. Inang Wika Publishing Company, Bibliographic information. QR code for Philippine History.

The appointment of the committee was postponed in deference to the amnesty proclamation of June 25 aimed at attracting officials and members of the Hukbalahap and PKM back to the government fold. Included in its roster of seven was the Representative from Zambales and future President, Ramon Magsaysay. There is more to this than meets the eye, however.

This may have taken place during the general amnesty from June to mid-August. Mariano himself worked as a typesetter and was active in the Union of Printers.

One senses that the CUFA knew this, for they were at great pains to demonstrate that they Villareal, Magsaysay, and the rest and not Balgos and his fellow travelers, were the authentic bearers of the Filipino revolutionary tradition. Balgos speak of revolution and use of force, which mean one and the same thing armed force. But it does not condemn armed revolution per se. It then becomes a question of whose revolution is legitimate. The latter threaten our freedoms, so we are entitled to defend them.

The rich element, which had everything to lose and practically nothing to gain personally, generally was not unaware of the hostility of the society towards the wealthy, the landlords in general, including the friar- suzerain. He has not prepared it himself, we know. His voice is strained and he stumbles a bit, as if he were unfamiliar with the text.

He is saying that the Huk revolution is not a true Filipino revolution; that it is not like the revolution of or like all of the hundred revolts of Filipinos against colonial domination.

He says that the Huk leaders are not nationalists, that they are agents of a foreign power who are taking advantage of the people and are betraying them into alien hands. What is Communism? Apparently the powerful Catholic Education Association of the Philippines had intervened.

Magsaysay then formed a palace committee that decided to allow 20, copies to be printed in As Defense Secretary, Magsaysay had spearheaded the crushing of the Huk rebellion by This triumph, accompanied as it was by civic action programs designed to wean peasant support from the rebels, was bound to attract the attention of many.

Somewhere along the line a connection between Magsaysay and Bonifacio was imagined. Instead of denigrating Bonifacio, why not appropriate him instead? As early as August , Leon Maria Guerrero, a legal counsel in the Senate and a close confidante of now-Senator Laurel, was reported to have visited Magsaysay at his office with an invitation to meet with the Senator.

The mysterious invitation suggests that Guerrero and his friends had identified Magsaysay as the ideal candidate short of Laurel himself who refused to run this time to pit against the faltering Quirino in the elections [ibid. Magsaysay politely declined the invitation. To top it all, the names of Laurel and his associate, Recto, had been discovered in captured documents of the Huks.

Laurel explained to the crowd that the times in which they lived could be compared to the crisis that led to the Revolution of Laurel admitted that Magsaysay was of limited educational background at one point Magsaysay worked as a foreman in a bus company but, Laurel emphasized, at least Magsaysay was dedicated and honest, unlike Quirino. The comparison with Bonifacio, the warehouseman of limited education, was apt or so it would have seemed to the enthusiastic audience. Whose best interests?

The Church, still smarting from the religious instruction controversy, cast its lot with Magsaysay, contributing millions of Catholic votes. Laurel and Recto, for their part, expected to work through Magsaysay in order to further their anticolonial nationalist aims. Quirino insisted that the inexperienced and immature Magsaysay was nothing but a puppet of both the Americans and the old politicians suspected of links with Communists.

To top it all, Quirino added, these politicians were once puppets of the Japanese. In contrast to the opportunistic and directionless Magsaysay, Quirino pictured himself as a model of consistency, who had worked against great odds to rebuild the nation from the ashes of World War II. Quirino repeated the allegations of the CUFA, now chaired by Liberal Congressman Tito Tizon, that Magsaysay not only had allied himself with the pro-communists Laurel and Recto, but was also in ef- fect fomenting violent revolution.

Laurel and Claro M. Recto, both of them black souls and communists, dangerous to this country. Castelo actually had a point.

One effect of hooking the present onto a revered past, as Laurel had done in comparing the crisis to and introducing the new Bonifacio, is that a powerful narrative line begins to reorient the present, making possible what previously could not even be imagined.

They seemed to forget that this new Bonifacio was the same American-made Magsaysay who had crushed the Huk rebellion. They were mesmerized by the return of the hero of , just as the spectators at the Independence Day ceremony, performed in the shadow of the Japanese military administration, were overpowered by the symbols of the Revolution and wept.

It was a movement, moreover, that attempted to forge its roots in the s. The Andres Bonifacio in Ramon Magsaysay was never more evident, if at all, than during the lead-up to the November 10 elections.

Organized labor groups certainly recognized that this presidential candidate, unlike any other, had worked with his hands as a garage mechanic and foreman. He was one of them and would understand their problems. Touring the countryside, he appeared to the masses to be like one of them. Much has been told and written about the magic he wrought among ordinary Filipinos. In time a multitude of little stories would become a mythology, creating a larger than life President a hero of the present, in effect.

As long as this effect was sustained, much of the nation held together. Now we must build a future worthy of that past. It is significant that we begin on this day and on this ground hallowed by the supreme sacrifice of Jose Rizal.

We can find no finer example of dedication to country to light our way. All too often, however, we speak of Rizal and of Del Pilar, Bonifacio, Mabini, and our host of heroes as if their work were done, as if today their spirit had ceased to have any meaning or value to our people. The fact is that we need their spirit now more than ever.

We need it to complete the work which they began. We need men of integrity and faith like Rizal and Del Pilar; men of action like Bonifacio; men of inflexible patriotism like Mabini. We need their zeal, their self-reliance, their capacity for work, their devotion to service, their ability to lose themselves in the common cause of building a nation. The social provisions of the Constitution would become more than just empty promises. The Bonifacio figured by Magsaysay in his candidacy was soon exorcised in his incumbency.

When it was finally published in in defiance of Magsaysay and the Church hierarchy, critics panned it for being Marxist and obsessed with the so-called masses while ignoring the contributions of the middle class to the revolution. It was also attacked for irreverently portraying Rizal as typically middle class in repudiating the Katipunan and refusing to join it.

The many criticisms of the book, however, tend to overlook its crucial function in providing an alternative to the official narrative of Philippine history that was shaped and implanted during the formative years of to , as the nation successively experienced Japanese colonialism, political independence, assertive nationalism, Allied liberation, still another political independence, and, finally, agrarian-socialist rebellion.

Rizal, too was being reconfigured for the times [Ileto ]. The conditions were being set in place for a new emplotment of Philippine history that would supplant, or at least provide a viable alternative to, the original template that was introduced in the wake of the Filipino-American triumph over Japan.

Postscript When my Cornell mentor, Professor Wolters, warned me in against writing like Agoncillo and, together with Professor Hall, encouraged me to emulate the Jesuit historian and arch- Rizalist De la Costa, they were, in effect, drawing an innocent neophyte into the earlier controversies over Rizal and Bonifacio. But why would Wolters, in particular, have cared about the writings of Agoncillo? Having looked more closely into the circumstances behind the writing and publication of The Revolt of the Masses, it seems to me that the Cold War proclivities of both Agoncillo and Wolters were behind much of this.

Agoncillo was born in in Lemery, Batangas province, which was the center of a vast guerrilla movement against the U. Army in and Wolters was born just three years later in Reading, England, when England was still lording over a vast empire.

History of the Filipino People (Agoncillo)

He was detained at Changi prison during the war, while Agoncillo was free to observe the workings of Japanese rule and conduct oral history research on Bonifacio and the Katipunan.

Agoncillo, as we have seen, sympathized with the communist-led Huk rebellion of the late s and s. He was under surveillance for pro-CPP activities in s. Wolters, in contrast, after liberation became District Officer in the anti-communist campaign in Malaya. He rose to the position of Director of Psychological Warfare in Although both Agoncillo and Wolters had had a longstanding interest in historical studies since their formative years at the University of the Philippines and Oxford, both came late to the history profession.Reynolds, Craig.

The Andres Bonifacio in Ramon Magsaysay was never more evident, if at all, than during the lead-up to the November 10 elections. Do you expect my work to reflect the personality of another? People flocked to the leaders of the Katipunan and demanded immediate revolt against Spain.
