Feudal Duterte


If you take away the usual complaints like corruption and poverty (which have always existed in the Philippines), you’ll realize that the only difference between Duterte and the previous admin is ideological. The Aquino admin tried to be progressive. The ruling regime, in contrast, is clearly conservative and panders to feudalistic notions of hierarchy, discipline, political control, state sovereignty, and sexual relations. To side with the regime is to throw away the Renaissance and the Enlightenment and embrace the Fall of Rome.
