Philippines Oligarchy, Benigno Cojuangco Aquino III, Liberty, Cockfighting

The future for liberty and cockfighting in the Philippines are dimmed by oligarchy, plutocarcy, and authoritarianism which may lead to totalitarianism.

  • Oligarchy (from Greek ὀλιγαρχία (oligarkhía); from ὀλίγος (olígos), meaning “a few”, and ἄρχω (archo), meaning “to rule or to command”) is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people could be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, or military control. Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who pass their influence from one generation to the next. Throughout history, oligarchies have been tyrannical (relying on public servitude to exist) or relatively benign. Aristotle pioneered the use of the term as a synonym for rule by the rich, for which the exact term is plutocracy, but oligarchy is not always a rule by wealth, as oligarchs can simply be a privileged group, and do not have to be connected by bloodlines as in a monarchy. Some city-states from ancient Greece were oligarchies.
  • Plutocracy (from Ancient Greek πλοῦτος, ploutos, meaning “wealth”, and κράτος, kratos, meaning “power, dominion, rule”), also known as plutonomy or plutarchy, is rule by the wealthy, or power provided by wealth.
  • Authoritarianism is a form of social organization characterized by submission to authority as well as the administration of said authority. In politics, an authoritarian government is one in which political authority is concentrated in a small group of politicians. It is usually opposed to individualism and libertarianism.
  • Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state holds total authority over society and seeks to control all aspects of public and private life wherever necessary.

Human rights and equality must be championed by every elected office as both human rights and equality are protected by the 1987 Constitution.

Who ever occupy the office is just a volunteer to provide public service. All achievements by government units are achievements of the respective office and NOT to be credited to the person occupying the office.

But with 83 political families listed by wikipedia currently, the people might have been manipulated to submit (authoritarianism) their future to these few families (oligarchy).

Anyone has to be given a chance to serve the country. To serve for the good of the office and LIBERTY for ALL. Not to occupy the office for the clout and money the office might bring.

Cockfighters and Liberty Lovers, we are responsible for our future. Do nothing, cockfighting and liberty in the Philippines will be in the hands of few families. Free your mind and think.
