Ever since democracy has been handed to them, Filipinos have never had the cognitive resources to understand it, or execute it. And with the election of an assassin, murderer, vigilante, big mouthed, crass, lazy, sociopathic megalomaniac, they have all but abandoned democracy all together.
Filipinos don’t seem to understand what civilization is either. They have elected a man who is not intelligent enough to understand WHY there’s so much crime and corruption. A man who’s solution is violent death extra-judicially. They place little value on human life, unless it’s a direct relative (and I say that loosely).
Ok, so the judicial system sucks, and that’s why they bypass it and kill people they think are criminals. But does Duterte talk about how he’s going to fix the judicial system so that justice can be served more swiftly and effectively? Nope! He just says he’ll continue killing people he thinks are criminals. There’s been many cases of mistaken identity with his death squad killings. Do they make any kind of connection as a result of those killings of innocent people as to why this method is uncivilized and JUST PLAIN WRONG? Nope! This is because they are too stupid to make the connection. They are too uncivilized to care that a few innocent people are killed.
But I have to say, on the other hand, maybe this is what they needed all along. I don’t believe they will ever be able to execute anything. They just need a daddy to keep them in line.
If you have to rule with an iron fist, it’s most likely because you cannot lead with intelligence.
