Here’s something that I learned from somewhere. We’ve always believed that the Philippines is directly under the control of Spain, right in Madrid. That wasn’t th case at all. The country was , in , fact, directly under the control of Mexico, and was considered a ” province ” of Mexico . Madrid thought the Philippines was just too far away. Jose Rizal never askd for independence. He was a Reformist and one of the reforms he wanted was that the Philippines should be under the direct control of Spain, not Mexico.
i have not heard about that story about mexico before but it’s true that jose rizal did not want to be free from being a colony of spain but to be properly managed by the government of spain.
And that’s also the reason why Jose Rizal officially became the national hero, proclaimed by the Americans…. because JR wasn’t an advocate of independence.
i’ve heard that argument before but if that is the case, the americans should have chosen emilio aguinaldo as the national hero. he pledged allegiance to america to save himself (if the rumors are to be believed).
