In one of his most important essays, "Filipinas Dentro de Cien Años," Rizal foretold with wonderful accuracy any of the important developments that would happen in the Philippines within a century. It did not take one hundred nor fifty, nor even ten years for things to begin to happen as he prophesied. 75 years after his death, the author analyzes Rizal’s prophecies and describes the Philippines’ state in relation to how Rizal pictured it in his writings, specifically his two major novels, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo.
