Noli Me Tangere (The Social Cancer) –by: Jos

Noli Me Tangere (Latin for Touch Me Not) is a novel by the National Hero of the Philippines, Dr. José Rizal. It was originally written in Spanish, and first published in Germany in 1887.

Noli Me Tangere, and the execution of Rizal, indirectly influe...
