ON THE FRENZIED BRUTAL EFFORTS OF DUTERTE TO MILITARIZE AND MAKE THE PHILIPPINES FASCIST
By Jose Maria Sison
It is neither the Filipino people’s struggle for national and social liberation nor the far future of communism that is the cause of intolerable oppression and exploitation but the semicolonial and semifeudal ruling system.
Under this system, the evil forces of foreign monopoly capitalism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism exploit and oppress the people. They are the driving forces of the reign of unbridled neoliberal greed and state terrorism.
They are being served by the frenzied but futile brutal efforts of Duterte and his military minions to militarize and make fascist the reactionary government and society under EO 70.
The rottenness and chronic crisis of this ruling system is now being aggravated by the Duterte regime because of its extremely traitorous, brutal, corrupt and plundering character.
