In this present age, the Philippines is filled with so many improper things that need to be undertaken properly. Currently, Filipino Lives were conquered by unethical actions and this greatly affects the way of governance and lifestyle of the countrymen. Through these existing attitudes, one may observe that the ‘Delicadeza’ value flows towards vanishing and eliminating in the character of every Filipino. The meaning of the word is changing. One concrete example of these is being abusive of his/her freedom such as caught doing other things around where everything is permitted as long as no one can catch.[4] Many of those who are seated in a public service today are opportunists such as those having suspicious connections with big illegal businesses and paid law firms.[5] One reason why corruption scattered in the country is because the meaning of Delicadeza has greatly changed.[6]


Aristotle was born in 384 B.C in Stagira, a small town in Thrace, Greece. His father Nichomachus was a famous doctor who served as a personal physician to king Amyntas III, the grandfather of Alexander the Great.
