Often derided with the nickname "The Butcher of Luzon", she is the more liberal, though still quite authoritarian successor to Ferdinand Marcos.
Cult of Personality
Like many communist dictators, Corazon Aquino's personality cult became integrated with Philippine culture and society. It is made into law that people would bow down to her statue as well as her husband's when passing. Her government is known to have people executed if they fail to praise her statue.
According to her official state biography, she claimed that she is the incarnation of the Virgin Mary who descended from heaven to install communism as "God's ideology" and to be one of the saviors of democracy.
