The #Philippines is forever doomed to be led by oppressive leaders!


Perhaps, the feudal filipino society; steeped as it is in patronage politics, is unable to produce anything but autocratic leaders. People seem unable to even conceive of a non-oligarchic rule. They are so enamored of wealthy celebrities; they cannot see that they are embracing their oppressors.

There are plenty of academics and community activists who could serve as public servants. The idea that "people like that do not go into politics" demonstrates how brain washed the ordinary person is. Someone needs to convince the people who believe thats things will never change; that they would be better off with a different type of leadership.
