The Philippines is one of the dumbest countries in the world. Probably the dumbest in Asia.
-The people are generally pychopaths/sociopaths
-They steal all the damn time
-They are insincere
-They rip off anyone they think has a few dollars/pesos (all "poreners")
-Most of the women you find are scammers/hoes
-You cannot trust even your girlfriend or her family
-It is fake. Looks Christian on the outside. That's fake.
And that is just the start of it. It's good for pump n' dump. That's it.
I will counter Ghost for his ultra Chinese nationalist views and the arrogance most Chinese people have that I encounter when it comes to country comparisons. The following series is the Democratic Philippines vs. Communist China. It will be a epic thread of which nation is more socially healthy for men. China is clearly overrun with spoiled male children. The China's one-child policy is a social engineering disaster. Female babies are being aborted because Chinese are cruel bastards. 1 billion Chinese and they're rude and racist as hell.
Chinese have claimed to be a "pure" Han race. But the Mongols and Japanese were "pump n' dumping" Chinese people for centuries. including Ghost's mother.
Wassup now Ghost? Who's your daddy now? *Shots Fired*

Wo bu shi zhong guo ren.
'Fraid those shots went strait to your foot, you idiot. I'm not Chinese.
The lack of women in China notion is largely a myth, excepting the rural areas. Poor farmers might be f***ed. And still then it is a numbers game for them. The cities are fine.
When I had a Flip girl, I felt defensive of the Phils too. But then I saw the truth. China has its problems, but that is different from the Phils. The Phils IS a problem, not merely suffering them. All the wealth of the world could be transferred to the Philippines tomorrow and it would be broke again within a few days. All the wealth of the world could be given to China and they'd become a power unlike has ever been seen. Deny the truth of what the Phils is like at your own peril. Never know when your girl (or any of her 50,000 relatives if you live there) will turn on you.
Also, unless you just came here to act like a little idiot, don't post in troll style. And for goodness' sake, do some damn research. I've got a bunch of posts. Not hard to figure out that I'm not Chinese. And you think the Chinese one-child policy uniformly f***ed up the entire country. If you had even just merely googled it, you probably would have found articles about how China is doing away with it.
Philippines is a poor country, but others in Asia are much worse. Ever been in Bangladesh? Or did a look to North Korea? And do you really think places like Afghanistan and Pakistan are so much better than the Philippines?
You can say that for sure about many people living in USA.
It's still the country of my family, my wife and children. I will raise them to be proud for that very fact, f***ed as the country may be. You have no business living in a country you hate. Sure I will tell my children that their country is corrupt and their government sucks balls... but ask my in-laws and none of them deny this. Why? They clever.
Enough with the self-hatred already, and all the "Filipinos suck\Filipinas suck\Philippines sucks" BS. If it's such a shithole, don't go there, don't move their, don't whine. Move on to greener pastures. It's getting old.
It seems you are grossly misinformed about mainland China.
You need only drive by car 30 minutes out of any larger city in China and you will see with your own eyes how it looks like.
In average, in financial terms, per person, mainland China is not richer than Thailand, this means it is doing about 3 times better than Philippines.
Due to its size, huge population of 1350 million people and its communist oppressive politics it is threatening all neighboring countries.
It occupied Tibet by military forces and is openly dictatorial towards Taiwan and HongKong.
Instead of assisting its poor neighbors Philippines and Vietnam to develop, China tries to occupy their fishing grounds and stealing their resources.
China has many internal problems and I consider this nation merely a bully and a braggart - the Chinese would say, it's a paper-tiger.
China does have many problems. I don't concern myself with that. The culture is better than the U.S. and Philippines. I don't care for China's politics at all, nor its form of government. (But as long as it resists democracy...anything is better than that.)
Great thing is that the culture is not promiscuous. Mongers get trounced out quickly...or worse. Most of the country is virtually immune to mongers. By contrast, the Phils is just one big promiscuous cesspool of a shithole. Not that it doesn't have its uses as well.
Ghost, you would love Russia then. Your friend Tsar Putin has an Iron Fist of authoritarian power in the former Soviet Union. Russians consider themselves Nordic Slavs. Russia would suit you better my white American buddy. Ghost is a Puritan and has a problem that people are having sex. LOL! The Pure Chinese spit, piss on the street, rude, and racist.
Ghost you're not Chinese. You never will be. White is beautiful my man. Embrace it.

Franco, the Philippines have problems like every second-world country that went from oligarchy (Spaniard) to oligarchy (US) to oligarchy (the top 1% families of European and Chinese ancestry) without ever giving democracy, that is the rule of the people for the people, a real chance.
As Pinoys, you did no more no less than any other post-colonial power struggling to build a democratic identity of their own amidst the geopolitical heavyweights (US, Russia and China) and their rule. You did it better in some phases of your history, and worse in some others.
Under Marcos, the Philippines were still better off than South Korea. Marcos sought independence and integrity for his own people, a socialist policy that was immediately likened to the much less benign communist regimes in Russia, China and Vietnam. This while General Park sent more than 300K Koreans to die for yet another stupid American war (in Vietnam) and was compensated by becoming a de facto US protectorate, showered under aid money.
While I was living in Davao I had the privilege of meeting members of some of Mindanao's most prominent families. Extremely well educated yet humble and compassionate, capable of shattering whatever stereotype under the sun about the alleged corruption, ignorance, and stupidity of Filipinos, in the space of a single conversation.
I also met people who couldn't sport the same levels of education and status, yet equally struck more than a chord with me for their warmth and friendliness, the simplicity and genuineness with which they acted towards their loved ones, their family and friends, and the strength with which they would bear hardship and sacrifices unimaginable for any of us spoiled Westerners.
I believe Filipinos are and remain one of the most underestimated peoples on Earth right now. Humble and noiseless by vocation, not by choice, trampled by history and yet able to show an incredible resilience and live on.
There is nothing wrong with being proud of being Filipino, if that pride is used as a leverage for true change.
I'm not Chinese nor do I wish to be Chinese. Don't put words in my mouth, you fool. I would prefer to have white children, but Russia seems like a post-feminist dump. It's hard to find a good story come out of it, or out of FSU countries. I haven't seen much to convince me that Russia is rejecting slut culture. Most of the women seem to be sluts, gold diggers, or worse...
I also don't like severely cold weather, and I don't care for Slavic languages. At least Russian would be useful to learn, but I am not interested.
I am not a Puritan, and actually I despise Puritanism. America suffers from a warped form of Puritanism now, even. Somewhere in history, America's Puritanism turned into a "women pure, men evil" kind of society. It is highly corrupt. Protestantism fostered a work ethic and wealth production phase in history that is unparalleled or nearly so. But it was highly prone to corrupt forces. Men should be having sex - with hoes - as it should be. What I despise is men "gaming" otherwise decent females and trying to turn them into sluts.
My issues with whites is not one of aesthetics, as should be obvious to anyone. The issue is cultural. Whites - all Europeans and descendants of Europeans - seem to have some innate weakness to liberalism. While it would be easy to cry "genetics!" I don't know enough about that to say one way or another. But I see it. I would even prefer to have white children and a white wife, but that is looking like it will not be possible.
Oh the white man's burden! Go cry me a river Ghost. Tim Wise already exposed white privilege. The British Empire colonized the world with naval superiority and guns. The white race isn't having as much babies because of selfishness and high costs of living. White skin is the most desired skin tone in children from Spanish to Asian countries. White people are in all positions of power and management. The richest people in the world are WHITES. The paranoia and fears of the white man all exists in their white heads.
If white people didn't invent guns and didn't have ambitions of imperialism, there wouldn't be this resentment against them. But white people thru money, guns, contracts, and disease have wiped out native indigenous populations to settle areas to benefit white race. When things don't go the way the white people want they cry about the evils of liberals and minorities! Yes. The Liberal Boogeyman is Real. And he's out to get you white Conservatives. BE SCARED.
It's hilarious Ghost worships China when the Chinese laugh at fat white North Americans for their laziness and stupidity.
Bow down to Asian supremacy. Love, Franco.
