Beyond disinformation

PDF

Much has been said about the marriage of disinformation and political agendas. Beyond fake news, however, disinformation operators have another, perhaps more ominous strategic intent: to create an environment of social tension within which “populist” authoritarians can thrive. We take a deep dive into the Philippine context, looking at the vitriolic spiral that set the stage for the rise—and continued popularity—of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, the calcification of this culture that has pushed an already beleaguered political opposition’s back against the wall, and the possibility of a way forward through a renewed focus on commonalities and mindfulness with regards to political language and tone.
