The grossly underhanded manner authorities and the cadet body of the Philippine Military Academy regarding l’affaire Cudia is symptomatic of the arrogance and contempt those in the military hierarchy perceive the civilian populace. Spawned by the unmitigated licentiousness and profligacy of the Marcos dictatorship, many of those in the uniformed services had gone berserk with whatever pretensions of honorable moorings and had turned their greed and cruelty on the unarmed people who were responsible for shouldering their livelihoods and upkeep in the first place. It has been years now since the dictatorship was dealt a death blow by an aroused citizenry but has all its evil vestiges been wiped off as well?
