Kartilya ng KatipunanGED104 ESSAYThe Kartilya ng Katipunanis major driving force for the grand narrative of Philippinehistory. The Kartilya was preceded by The Decalogue of Duties of the Sons of the People whichshows the patriotism and love for God of the people, Andres Bonifacio believed that the love ofGod is the love of country, the Decaloguealso talks about the teamwork, perseverance, diligence,and even sacrifice needed by the people for the greater good. The Kartilya also embodies theseideals but with more eloquence from its predecessor. It is a very important document that showsthe historians today what the katipuneros believed and fought for. The Kartilya shows thefanaticism of the katipuneros to fight for the freedom of this country. This document, theKartilya, sets the tone of the grand narrative of Philippine history wherein love and sacrifice is amajor theme in our history that is why it is important to the grand narrative of Philippine history.The Kartilya for me is the starting point of the modern Philippine history we know of today. Theteachings in the kartilyahas been ingrained to us and has become our second nature, ourselflessness that is known throughout the world is an example of this. That is why it is veryimportant in the grand narrative of history, without it we would be different from us now, wewould have different values and beliefs.
