The Filipino military claims to have foiled a coup attempt, as protests become louder over the recent turn towards authoritarianism. The entire government of the Philippines is on the verge of collapse, thanks in large part to the incompetence and authoritarianism of President Gloria Arroyo. Ever since she's taken power, she's done everything possible to make the country less free. Illiberal democracies are no better than dictatorships, and in many ways they're a lot worse. Bring on the revolution, Philippines.
