Why do Filipinos see rich people as necessarily bad?

The idea that rich people might actually be good people is something one that is often alien to the Filipino mind. Must be all that Catholic indoctrination at work there (that "It is easier for a camel..." crap many of us grew up on).

  2. oddly enough, the oligarchy that's been keeping a firm grip on the country's wealth for themselves, make for quite an example of this belief that rich people are probably not selfless. look at the lopezes and the abscbn empire. they even sold the country a moron for a leader. wow.
