Five greatest presidents we never had

(The Philippine Star) - August 17, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - This month in Esquire, we feature the best presidents our country never had: five unimpeachable 20th century statesmen, in a five-cover “What I’ve Learned” special. They are Leon Maria Guerrero, who was exiled for his brilliance; the 5’4”

Carlos P. Romulo who walked tall with Gen. MacArthur; Jose W. Diokno, recognized as the best lawyer of his generation; Benigno Aquino, who surrendered liberty and then life for the people’s freedom; and Carlo M. Recto, an unyielding nationalist. Read up on the men we wish were around today to make sense of our current struggles.
 Speaking of making sense of our struggles: In A Shoal of Lies,” Justice Antonio T. Carpio breaks down point-by-point why China’s maritime claims in the West Philippine Sea (allegedly based on historical facts) are assertions rooted in myth, mistakes and total falsehoods.

When Ninoy Aquino was assassinated, all fingers were pointed at Rolando Galman. But who was he, and where did he come from? Gregorio C. Brillantes looks back at the alleged assassin in “The Other Body.”

Plus we celebrate “Man at his Best” — even when he’s still single. We give you five perspectives on the life of single men now; show you where you can take a girl on a first date; and even teach you how to make your own drinks at home, if you’re just staying in for the night.

Plus an ESQ&A with Sergio Osmeña, who talks about abolishing the pork, who needs the most help in 2016, and “The Katzenjammer Kids.”

All this and more, this month in Esquire Philippines.
