Today’s View: Liar Dream

By DON J. PAGUSARA

Davao Today

Liar, because the speaker is an incorrigible liar and the promises are lies.  Dream, because the people are made to hope and expect “a kingdom come” or “a state of better living” or “a more comfortable life,” or at least a more “humane earthly existence.”  Which never ever comes.  Not today, not tomorrow, not until the end of time!
