Marxist theory: Teddy Locsin hints Rappler’s Ressa could be guilty of abetting drug lords

Recommended Posts

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. hinted that Rappler CEO Maria Ressa could be guilty of “aiding and abetting” illegal drugs even if her criticism against President Rodrigo Duterte’s drug war was sincere.

“In Marxist legal theory, one who, out of sincerest conviction, stands in the way of or discredits reforms (such as the total extermination of the drug trade) is objectively guilty of aiding and abetting the said criminal activity,” said Locsin in tweet.

He was quoting from “Humanism and Terror: An Essay on the Communist Problem” by Merleau Ponty published in 1947.

Locsin was responding to a tweet by @MsMarisseGarcia who said: “As a
Filipino, I hold Maria Ressa @mariaressa accountable for destroying the image of my country.
