The Opposition is dead because its principal members are brain dead.
Take Leni Robredo, Frank Drilon, Kiko Pangilinan, Risa Hontiveros, Bam Aquino, Leila de Lima, Antonio Trillanes, Edcel Lagman, and Gary Alejano. Which of them are noted for their intellect? Examine their public statements.
BBC host Stephen Sackur showed the lack of intellect of one of them, Antonio Trillanes, when he interviewed him on his program 'Hard Talk.' It showed Trillanes to be no more than a charlatan, a liar, a coup plotter, a destabilizer who is completely out of touch with reality. Imagine Trillanes claiming the drug problem was overblown because most addicts were taking marijuana instead of shabu! Trillanes only proved what I had been saying all along, that this brainless is a candidate for the mental asylum.
They miscalculated the public mood. Most people abroad and here in the Philippines oppose drug proliferation and terrorism. They applaud strong leaders and strong measures to put an end to them. They place a low premium on human rights of druglords and terrorists. That is why the Opposition here has a small audience. They picked the wrong issues to fight Duterte. As Stephen Sackur told Trillanes, you're banging your head against a brick wall.
But the Opposition will never understand what Sackur meant. By definition, morons are mentally dead.
