Please dont take my rebuttal wrongly.. I love smart conversations. I concede to you and to your teacher, but let me explain my opinion:

We all know that Rizal was a victim of the revolution, not a proprietor. As a writer I think he wrote only what the times suggested were imminent. Did he share the convictions of the revolutionaries? We would be reading between the lines if we said ‘yes.’ (yet we choose to say ‘yes’) But what we know as fact is that, as a member of the La Liga Filipina, Rizal pushed for Filipinos and Spaniards to be treated as equal. :)
