badmouthing the Philippines

Instances to prove our damaged culture

In this article, Emil Jurado believes that the trait of badmouthing the Philippines is a proof of "the Philippines' damaged culture."

I have to agree that badmouthing the Philippines is a bad trait of some (hopefully not most) Filipinos (My parents and relatives did not badmouth the Philippines and neither will I). It is just so easy to see bad things for some. All they do is talk and talk and talk and talk about how bad the Philippines is and it just ends there. They do not do anything to help solve the problems they hate. If all they can do is talk then they must shut their bad mouths. Talk is so cheap!

Although the pen is mightier than the sword for some, actions speak louder than words!
