How to Write a Summary of an Article? Jose Protacio Rizal Mercado y Alonzo Realonda, our national hero who is known for his nationalism and patriotism usually come side by side with these words; the doctor, the writer, the philosopher, the clairvoyant, and most of all the hero who died for the country.
The national revolution represents a peak of achievement to which the minds of man return time and again in reverence and for a renewal of faith in freedom.
Revolution becomes the principal hero of his people. The unity between the venerated mass action and the honored single individual enhances the influence of both.
In our case, our national hero was not the leader of our Revolution. In fact, he repudiated that Revolution.
In fact, when he was arrested he was on his way to Cuba to use his medical skills in the service of Spain. And in the manifesto of December 15, which he addressed to the Filipino people, he declared: I did even more. When later, against my advice, the movement materialized, of my own accord I offered my good offices, but my very life, and even my name, to be used in whatever way might seem best, toward stifling the rebellion; for convinced of the ills which it would bring, I considered myself fortunate if, at any sacrifice, I could prevent such useless misfortune….
I have written also and I repeat my words that reforms, to be beneficial, must come from above, and those which comes from below are irregularly gained and uncertain. Holding these ideas, I cannot do less than condemn, and I do condemn this uprising-which dishonors us Filipinos and discredits those that could plead our cause.
I abhor its criminal methods and disclaim all part in it, pitying from the bottom of my heart the unwary that have been deceived into taking part in it. Either the Revolution was wrong, yet we cannot disown it, or Rizal was wrong, yet we cannot disown him either. By and large, we have chosen to ignore this apparent contradiction.
Rizalists, especially, have taken the easy way out, which is to gloss over the matter. For some Rizalists, this aspect of Rizal has been a source of embarrassment inasmuch as they picture him as the supreme symbol of our struggle for freedom. Perhaps they do not perceive the adverse consequences of our refusal to analyze and resolve this contradiction.
Yet the consequences are manifest in our regard for our Revolution and in our understanding of Rizal. The Philippine Revolution has always been overshadowed by the omnipresent figure and the towering reputation of Rizal.
Because Rizal took no part in that Revolution and in fact repudiated it, the general regard for our Revolution is not as high as it otherwise would be.
On the other hand, because we refuse to analyze the significance of his repudiation, our understanding of Rizal and of his role in our national development remains superficial. This is a disservice to the event, to the man, and to ourselves.
Had someone of lesser stature uttered those words of condemnation, he would have been considered a traitor to the cause. Rizal repudiated the one act which really synthesized our nationalist aspiration, and yet we consider him a nationalist leader.
Such an appraisal has dangerous implications because it can be used to exculpate those who actively betrayed the Revolution and may serve to diminish the ardor of those who today may be called upon to support another great nationalist undertaking to complete the anti-colonial movement.

Rizal being chosen as the national hero Between Two Empires Theodore Friend and with other American colonial officials and some conservative Filipinos, chose him Rizal as a model hero over other contestants — Aguinaldo too militant, Bonifacio too radical, Mabini unregenerate.Veneration without Understanding (Does Rizal deserve to be our national hero?)
