English term or phrase: self-esteem
Those who belittle the morality of others do so in an effort to justify their own lack of courage to defend what is right. They are like the badgerer. They suffer from low self-esteem, are easily bought, and enjoy bringing pain to others. They are people who have failed in life, and want to see others fail like them. They are mudrakers and stink from the mud that they rake.

Grading comment
There were many good answers, but you have all made my grading very easy by sticking together.

Comment to denyce: There is nuance, at least in my mind, between self-esteem and pride. Pride is more extroverted -- something that is felt inwardly, but also shown outwardly. Self-esteem is something that is more hidden. Although one is likely to sense it from the outside, the individual does not go out of his way to display it. There is a certain amount of deceptive outward humility involved.

Thank you Joe211817 for the stimulating response.

agree  Denyce Seow: I have a little concern about the difference between "pride 自" and "self-esteem" but it seems that all my dictionaries refer to "self-esteem" as 自尊心. Actually, in English, there is a little difference between "pride" and "self-esteem"
