and yet they are fighting for state hoods

I only said it's not cost effective for INTERNATIONAL shipping lines doing CONTAINERIZED cargo in most ports in the Visayas, and therefore not good places to set up export processing zones. Export processing zones with production plants dependent on raw imported materials is one type of foreign investment/business model. There are other businesses that can flourish in the Visayas, some of which are existing and in operations. Also putting better infrastructure like bridges, tunnels to connect the islands will give better transport options. And these are not small islands, especially in terms of population. Japan made sure to connect Shikoku with the main island Honshu even if its population is smaller than even Negros or Panay and these most likely did not "pay for itself".

thats just a painful truth no one is talking about when they are advocating federalism

Please do not misquote me. I just said it is not the right time for international shipping lines to put up containerized cargo routes to those cities, and therefore, export processing zones are not the answer in those islands. Other than that, I never said it's not worth investing there.


I don't know where you are from and how much you know about the Visayas and Mindanao, but I've been to Iloilo City, Bacolod City, Cagayan de Oro City, Davao City, Tagbilaran City, etc. and all of them are more prosperous and better than anywhere in Tarlac.

I think what should be solved here is Visayas, Mindanao, Palawan and Sulu be granted self determination because they did not want to the join the revolutionary republic of Bonifacio even if they joined Katipunan, they want their own country. Quezon did not grant them that and instead put them in a forced union against their will.

The Philippines is so diverse that I wonder how they could ever be a nation. What really unites them?

its just like America where some states are so proud of themselves but couldnt stand on their own when given the chance to be independent.

With the increased Chinese military incursions around the periphery of the Philippines and the massive economic investments by Beijing the islands will in the end for all practical purposes be an overseas province of the Peoples Republic. Secession is the least of this country's problems.

The Catholic religion.

If the Reformation arrives in The Philippines, it will still be Christianity since it has been a mainstay in Filipino culture for 500 years already.

Who is this stupid God? --President Rodrigo Duterte
Opinion: To the Philippine Catholic Church, Duterte is a modern-day Henry VIII

The most shocking aspect of his politics, however, is his direct and often personal attacks against the Catholic Church hierarchy. Until recently, many experts would have considered this an act of political suicide, given the tremendous influence of the religious organisation in Philippine history.

Duterte and Trump are just part of Putin and Xi's Cold War with America and allies once Trump is removed so does Duterte..

However, Duterte might change his mind and have Mindanao secede if the Democrats retake the White House soon, he wanted to secede Mindanao during Gloria's time.
