The vice-presidential candidacy of the son and namesake of the late, unlamented dictator Ferdinand Marcos has only further confirmed the Marcoses’ delusion of (returning to) continuing power to (re-)establish their brand of anti-people and fascist rule.

He should, in fact be in a regular civilian jail.
