    Examples of Thai peasant mentality in the face of their attitude

    A lot of people are so fast to bring criticism against Thaksin and his crew when they ran the nation, and so much so that they brought him down with a coup and attempted to turn the whole country against him. As you know, he subsequently fled to the UK, he had little choice.

    When the military rulers then took over, one of the first things they did was get rid of the remaining two english speaking radio stations, and turn them back to Thai. This was an atempt to get nation back to being proud of itself I read somewhere and not seen as a major step backwards because criticism of the government isn't looked favourably upon at all as we all know by the ordinary public.

    Well at least Thaksin was at least trying to bring this country into the 21st century with some of his thinking and planning. His APEC speech in 2003 (or what it 2004?) wasn't bad in terms of at least sounding like you're in touch with the outside world. At least his english was f**king passable.

    I read an article last months that criticised Thai people of almost all class for having "one foot in the village" in terms of mentality and attitude to money, which I can agree to to a point, in fact I agreee to many points about this remark:

    Do I need to walk through Chatuchak Park after my run and watch the peasant folks extracting plastic water botles from the bins five minutes after I've thrown them in there?

    Legless beggars line the streets around tourist areas and tourists think they are part and parcel of the world here in Thailand, well they're not. They were placed there by some 'well meaning' mafia, possibly the Indians I think.

    The sight of ambulance crews atempting to get me to donate cash to their cause when they stand outside the BTS showing me pictures of accidents is also disgraceful. This is 2008. The country's government should be funding this and making it also a law that ambulances in emergencies should be able to have priority in traffic and no way have to wait behind some so-called rich show-off in his Toyota Corolla yakking into a mobile phone and not taking any notice of it.

    And in the mornings if I wanna buy fruit, a pick up truck blasting out megaphones telling the whole area about it will not make me think "I'll have some of them pineapples" at all, it makes me close the windows all the more. That's forceful sales that could also be counted as bullying tactics. Getting people out of bed to sell your wares is a stupid, dictatorship type mentality.

    Will it ever change? I fucking doubt it under this ageing 71 year old Samak guy..

    I know.

    That's why I wrote "morning pat" and not "afternoon pat"

    I enjoyed reading the OP, it's sometimes good to sit down and write about the shit that gets you down, it can be very therapeutic. I'm surprised that allowing elephants to be dragged around the city streets never got a mention though.

    Discusting, simply discusting.

    Not sure what any of this has to do with "peasant mentality"?

    I'm even more surprised that there is not a reference to Anal sex or blood either.

    There wouldn't be, I practice this and I'm of higher class that those of a village mentality.
