Most modern capitalist countries are also in poverty and heavily indebted to smiling capitalists.

First, I do not hold mindless killing to be a way to enlightenment.
Second, communists are not my fellows in all or even most cases.
Third, these are not the islands of any king, although they may have been naned after one, like Georgia or Louisiana.
Fourth, those fighting in the jungle have religious, not economic issued.
Fifth, there are constituional ways to remove Duterte from office in need be done.
Sixth, the only association I have with these islands is one of domicile

You really believe in propaganda, don't you?

In 2016, 18% of Chinese total exports is to America. This is a big number but not as big as Americans tend to imagine.
And you know what, the top 10 exports are from US corporations operated in China.
