There are two types in general in all countries, those who admit reality and those who don’t. Those who speak out clearly about the corruption or other bad things of their countries, and those who deny it and try to glorify their countries often shoving really dirty/scary things under carpet like rampant corruption or corpses!
Those who prefer speaking truth will be quite curious to know why they lie so bluntly! Is it because they want to spread good things about their country? Patriots…? Then why are they caught doing big bad things?
May be they do it because they prefer denying so they don’t have to do something about it! the best way of shrugging one’s duty is to deny its existence!
I have seen people doing it in small scale… may be big people do it in the large scale!
