So has the “war on drugs” morphed into “war on critics of President Duterte?” It seems that the answer is No. There are no big evidence to prove this statement yet. And that is a good news. The bad news is that the “war on drugs” remains a messy and violent one and created a new uncertainty, the “war on nerves” on the people.
One of my friends, a respected economist and a fellow UP School of Economics (UPSE) alumni, has criticized some policies of President Duterte by posting her misgivings on her Facebook account.
