Thailand and democracy

2 December 2008 - I feel disappointed to read about Thailand's internal problems nowadays. Having wrote an article about Thailand internal contradictions a year ago (here), I have to admit that there is a very long way to go for Thai peoples to embrace democracy and the road that they looks like to undertake might be a bloody one. This development would surely affect the relations between its neighbour such as trans-border problems with Malaysia and Cambodia (the ancient temple issues might precipitates an all out war - to deviate the internal contradictions that is happening now).

 

Thai peoples need to understand and respect democracy, because they are the one that pick the current Thais government. This respects would requires them to be patience and if they need to change their government, they shouldn't do it through coup de' tat or demonstrations - but through the same ballot box that they picked their government before. These internal problems have undermined the development of Thailand. That is very shame, because Thailand has a lot of potentials that it can exploit for the betterment of its people.
