MANILA, Philippines- Sa gitna ng pangamba ng publiko ukol sa pagbabalik ng pamilya Marcos sa Malakanyang na siyang magiging dahilan ng pagkasira ng kasaysayan, naniniwala si incoming PCOO Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles na panahon na upang buksan sa debate ang martial law period.

Ani Angeles, ang pagkuwestiyon sa historical events o maging sa mga naiestablisang katotohanan ay hindi dapat na ipinagbabawal, kabilang na ang martial rule ng namayapang Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos, ama ni President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

“Some ideas need discourse, some ideas are open to investigation,” ayon kay Angeles.

“Some ideas are supported, certain ideas can always be questioned. But it doesn’t mean that they will come up with a different conclusion,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

At nang sabihin sa kanya na ang martial law era ay “well-documented,” kabilang na ang court rulings na nagpapatibay sa kumalat na pang-aabuso sa karapatang-pantao at maging sa korapsyon, sinabi ni Angeles na: “That’s a minefield by itself.”

“We’re all part of that discourse, we’re talking about history. Why don’t we allow a discourse? That’s the question. We’re talking about free speech,” aniya pa rin.

At nang tanungin naman kung ang publiko ay dapat na makipag-debate sa “unassailable facts,” ang tugon ni Angeles ay : “I think that everything should always be open to debate.”

“Even scientific theories and even established facts are always open to question,” ayon kay Angeles sabay sabing “I’m not saying that just because we open it to question, a different result will come out of it.”

Sinabi ni Angeles na ang kakakulangan sa diskurso sa mga mahahalagang usapin ang dahilan ng pagkalat ng “misinformation at disinformation.”

“Free speech is the rule. Discourse determines what is disinformation, misinformation,” ani Angeles.

Para kay Angeles, “free speech doesn’t imply that there is a need to come up with a resolution every time.”

“Sometimes, free speech is just an expression, and sometimes that expression involves a question,” aniya pa rin.

“Does it mean that we stop those people from asking questions if we think that the result is something we are not ready to accept, or is in fact even wrong? Do we stop the discourse because people may come up with the wrong conclusion?” dagdag na pahayag nito. Kris Jose
