30. Serious answer...democracy

I grew up in the Philippines, and from what I can see this was the freest and fairest election the Filipinos have had since WW2. Voters rightly saw the political structure in both Parties as corrupt and ineffectual and (like Donald trump) voted for someone different.

FWIW, notwithstanding his extrajudicial anti-crime tactics, there's no indication of personal corruption or benefit by Duterte, in comparison to the alternatives.
