The #Philippines' social volcano overdue for an eruption?


The Philippines looks awfully like 1788 France, you have the monarchy (government) and clergy enjoying rights that no-one else has while the rest suffer from shortages, external threats and lack of safety. Something that was an issue in 1788 France.

Now why am I bringing this up? It's because after awhile, the people had enough and the French Revolution happened. The aristocracy got the guillotine.

While I know that Filipinos in general will turn the other cheek and happily take the abuse, I wonder what will set off the powder keg of resentment that has been building up for years…
