Re: Martial Law in Thailand

.....if you want to establish a democracy that is. That's the hitch...the patriarchal system of Asian culture, so firmly entrenched, is such that no one, (literally), even thinks of saying boo to anyone at, (or even affiliated with), the top...so, human nature, for the most part, being what it is, ...

Re: Martial Law in Thailand

...I'm horrified to see anyone supporting such a brazen assault on democracy.

Re: Martial Law in Thailand

Why, oh why am I responding?...so many inaccurate, out of proportion, misguided inferences in the previous posts...suffice it to say that, unequivocally, what's transpired recently is for the better...believe what you will...
