Philippines is not poor because we lack natural resources or because nature was cruel to us. In fact, we are supposedly rich in natural resources. We are poor because we lack the correct attitude. We lack the will to comply with and teach these functional principles of rich and developed societies. We are the most abusive to the environment: Illegal Logging, illegal mining, dynamite and cyanide fishing, hunting and poaching of birds and wildlife. We throw garbage everywhere.
Executives from rich countries who communicate with their counterparts in poor countries show that there is no significant intellectual difference. Race or skin colors are also not important: immigrants labeled lazy in their countries of origin are the productive power in rich European countries.The difference is the attitude of the people, framed along the years by the education and the culture and flawed tradition.
The behaviors of the people in rich and developed countries are greatly followed the following principles on their lives, namely: Ethics, as a basic principle, Integrity, Responsibility, Respect for the laws & rules, Respect for the rights of other citizens, Work loving, Strive for savings and investment, Will of super action, Punctuality and of course, Discipline.
In addition to the above facts, the Philippines was managed by corrupt government and corrupt officials. During the terms of past presidents, the country has become one of the most corrupt country in the world especially during the term of former president Noynoy Aquino, his six years in office made the Philippines tormenting. The country and its people has become the victims of corruption. Illegal drugs has spread throughout the country and has killed and destroyed many dreams of the million young Filipinos.
The Philippines is rich. Huwag lang nakawin ang pera ng kaban ng Bayan, we will survive. Much more if we Filipinos should adapt the correct attitude as well as hindi iaasa ang ating kinabukasan sa tulong ng ibang bansa, we can eat three times a day and enjoy life with freedom.
