Thank you. Manila is my home, I’ve spent over half my life here. Personally, I’m already too old to “fit the profile,” so I’m fairly safe — it’s the poor who are being killed — the people in whose name Duterte campaigned. I’m not quite done with the Trump-Duterte parallels. Susceptibility to demagoguery is worldwide right now, but the Philippine-US case is uncanny.

Like what you read? Give Mac McCarty a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
