    This need to humanize Rizal is brought up by the notions of Rizal being a supreme being with no fault. This close-to-being-a-god notion gave us a reason to understand and know who Rizal is under all the titles and ideologies attached to his name. In fact, a reason why he is thought of as a god is because his life is a mystery. Not a lot of people knew who he was besides his literary works and his heroic deeds so if we knew how he lived, we can understand him and his works.

    1. Did Rizal supported the 1896 Philippine Revolution of bonifacio? Why or why not? - I don’t think he did. If I were to tell based on what I understand in his point of view, he don’t want Filipinos to revolt yet, because he knew that this will not succeed. But on the other hand, I think that he supported it on his own ways. He wanted Filipinos to be free, one of the reason why he build the group “La liga Filipina, it’s because he wanted too, to revolt but I think he is still waiting for the…
