What does the rise of Mocha Uson, RJ Nieto and Sass Rogando Sasot mean to us? Who are they, by the way? They are not your usual resource persons as defined by the elitist academe, the media and the Church. They have risen to become effective communicators by simply being the persons we can identify with. The same thing can be said of the president who has given a face to the government that we can all recognize to be of the people, by the people and for the people. The support they gain from Filipinos worldwide is a clear victory for the masses and a serious blow to every established notion of “authority” or anything that dictates who the people should listen to.
