    A little while ago, I saw a disturbing clip on TV wherein Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte said, “Hitler massacred three million Jews. Now there are three million drug addicts. I’d be happy to slaughter them.”

    Reportedly, since July 1, 2016, 729,915 people associated with drugs have turned themselves in, 28,682 have been arrested, and 3,556 have been killed.

    More recently, the White House canceled a meeting between Obama and Duterte, after Duterte called Obama a “son of a whore” (putang) during a speech.

    I saw that story a few days ago. It makes me wonder if there really is any hope for many perpetually chaotic places on this planet.
