    Thailand and the Deep State

    Link is here for the full article ... Conspiracy theorists often talk about the '''deep state'''. This is what one might actually look like - ABC News

    A few extracts to see if the story interests you.

    "Since 2001, every prime minister elected by the people has been brought down by either the military or the Constitutional Court, working together with the Election Commission and National Anti-Corruption Commission.Thailand has had 19 constitutions and 13 coups since 1932 an average of one every seven years.
    The last was now 10 years ago.


    "Analysts say the so-called "deep state" that fringe groups fear in other parts of the world is very real in Thailand."

    "Thailand is no stranger to political turmoil and while governments come and go, the only constant seems to be the so-called "deep state" operating in the shadows."
    Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago ...

    Trouble is in Thailand one can not comment or criticise for the risk of imprisonment or sanctions.

    Everyone wants to say the ssme thing but won't risk it.

    I wouldn't call it particularly deep.

    Indeed. It is as shallow as the faux rage of SA, or the angry corrections to grammar and punctuation by Cyrille.

    Both equally shallow and anachronistic.

    Might be deeper than you think.
