    You're right - the finger that tipped the scale is the fact that there is no such thing as a local story anymore. Corruption is embarrassing on the international stage, and if the people of the Philippines can keep the camera turned on the current band of grifters, bosses, and clan leaders things may change. It will take breaking a long tradition of top-down Theftocracy, but if they stick to it they might end up with something that resembles a government responsible to The People.
